Buffalo is lucky to have a furniture designer the likes of Pedro Manuel Freire. His furniture design gallery showroom, Manuel Barreto Furniture, is located at 430 Delaware Avenue. Fans of streamlined, swank, contemporary furniture design will appreciate the fine craftsmanship that goes into each of Pedro’s works of art. He is an exquisite artisan that represents Buffalo in an impressive light.
Since opening in 2014, Pedro has been concentrating on selling to the Buffalo market (see history). He and his wife Christina have been hosting numerous events and showings in order to introduce their wares locally. Now, the couple are ready to take the show on the road, quite literally. They are preparing to enter impressive works into the global market, starting with the Interior Design Show (IDS) in Toronto.
In order to expand into other markets, including NYC and Miami, Pedro and Christina have launched a Kickstarter campaign, which they hope will fuel their brand into a market that is beyond competitive. Already they have gotten an esteemed nod of approval from ePorta (B2B Marketplace for Furniture and Furnishings), which has accepted Manuel Barreto Furniture designs to be predominantly featured on its prestigious platform.
Next up is the Interior Design Show network, which will ultimately give Manuel Barreto Furniture accessibility to the global wholesale/retail market that will help to drive their business. That said, the company has just 20 days to raise the $16,500 funds that they need to deliver their products to the world via Toronto, NYC and Miami. These Interior Design Shows have the ability to catapult companies to far-reaching customer bases, that are simply not accessible otherwise. In order to get to these shows, it costs money. Gaining access to these shows is a dream for any top notch furniture designer and manufacturer.
Fans of Manuel Barreto Furniture have a chance to put Buffalo on the map for quality, sleek, original modern design. Consider donating to the company’s Kickstarter campaign, and watch this furniture designer/craftsman take the world by storm.
