Sylvie Meis has already made a name for herself in the industry as a lingerie designer, but what are her views on interior design? “I believe that fashion and interior design go hand in hand. My home furnishings match my personal lifestyle. Not only do they reflect my personality, but they also convey a certain attitude to life – my own attitude.” So the fashion-conscious Dutch woman leaves no doubt about the value of furnishings.

Being an entrepreneur, presenter, model and designer, this style ambassador knows about the importance of charisma, on the one hand, and well-being, on the other. “I’m always actively looking for the latest home accessories and special furniture. So why not go right to the source? Everyone knows that trends are born at Ambiente, and I’m sure I’ll find more than I’m looking for. What can be more important than creating a home for yourself that’s cosy and comfortable?”

Sylvie was born in Breda in the Netherlands. She started her career as a presenter when she was 21, straight after her degree. The entrepreneur has just launched her second lingerie collection for her brand Sylvie Flirty Lingerie. Yet she is not just a business woman and photo model. She is also an entertainer and has worked as a presenter of Supertalent and the live dance show Let’s Dance. Moreover, she is actively involved as an ambassador for several charities, including DKMS Life and Pink Ribbon, promoting the cause of cancer sufferers.

Sylvie Meis will be exploring Ambiente on a guided tour on 12 February 2018. To register for this tour and to request interviews for 12 February, please write to by 8 February 2018.
