OUR VISIT TO THE MADE BY DESIGN LUXURY HOME AND HOSPITALITY EXHIBITION IN LAGOS

This past weekend, we paid a visit to the made by design exhibtion held at the landmark center, Victoria Island, Lagos – the first event of its kind for the Nigerian Luxury Home and Hospitality industry.

Organised by Essential Interiors magazine in conjunction with This Day Newspapers, the event was an enlightening experience. From the speakers sharing their insights on the Business of Luxury at the conference, to the vast array of products and services on display from high end brands, there was much to see and appreciate. Here’s what our experience was like.
