On Saturday 3rd October 2009, Interior Options welcomed clients and guests to their annual open day. It was an opportunity for everyone to explore unique ways to ‘celebrate their space’. As a live band played; guests browsed, admired and purchased IO pieces. There was an address from His Excellency, The Consulate General Sig. of Italy, Antonio Giandomenico who was introduced by IO MD, Muni Shonibare. Overall, a great event and opportunity to promote enterprise in Nigeria!
