Como, Italy - The most recent edition of the Proposte fair for high-end fabrics and curtains, held last month, reported a 21% increase in U.S. visitors.

Some 325 Americans joined visitors from Europe, Russia, Asia, the Middle East and South America. While Europeans continued their strong showing, attendance from China nearly doubled to 42 visitors.

The Image 2012 design competition was won by Alessandro Cocchia from Napels, with Davide Incorvaia coming in second and Eliseu De Castro Leão third. The winning image can be viewed at www.propostefair.it on the Image 2012 page.
Proposte will mark its 20th anniversary at next year's show, which runs from May 8-10 at Villa Erba, Cernobbia near Como.
