In Honor of the European World Cup Winners, A Little Something About Spain
Last year, thanks to an introduction through Cindy Allen (Miss Cindy loves connecting people!) I was able to take an amazingly wonderful tour of 5 cities in Spain. Starting in Madrid we travelled to Bilbao, La Rioja, Vitoria, and Pamplona (I gained about 7 pounds in 7 days!!!! ). We were introduced to Spanish design in the contract furniture sector and got to meet a lot of wonderful people and see wonderful Spanish products. ( Did I mention that we ate a lot of delicious food and drank a lot of delicious wine?) Mikel Orbel who heads Design in Spain here in NYC was our fabulous guide. The reason for this long story is that I was absolutely blown away by the Madrid Barajas International Airport which was designed by Antonio Lamela and Richard Rogers.
