Ms. Krystyna Kielbon is the President and C.E.O. of Il Bella Sole, a company building custom designed, eco-friendly, avant garde furniture. Their furniture and accessories are used in luxury living spaces, amenity spaces, full service hotels, and boutique hotels.
Ms. Kielbon spent 15 years as a senior executive in the international finance industry and commercial real estate before founding Il Bella Sole. The idea for her business came during a vacation in Sardinia years ago. Krystyna couldn’t keep the sun from glaring off her tablet screen or her face. She realized that most of the resort’s furniture didn’t have adjustable sun shades. Krystyna had an epiphany and soon after designed the elegant and spacious Arabella Chaise shaded lounger. Since her launch of the Arabella collection, she has introduced an extensive product line collection for the hospitality industry.
Ms. Kielbon was approached to become a member of the Board of Advisors to Global Chamber Charlotte when she and Mark Lohsen, the Global Chamber Charlotte Executive Director, attended an Export seminar hosted by the US Commercial Service.
Shortly after accepting the BoA role, Mark learned of Furniture Trade Show opportunity through the Global Chamber’s network of member cities. Emre Cekemoglu, the Global Chamber Istanbul Executive Director, uncovered an opportunity with the Istanbul Exporters’ Association that was hosting a Furniture Exhibition. The Exhibition, January 23-26, 2017 draws manufacturers showcasing new products for the emerging industry. They were offering a limited number of free travel, accommodation, and admission packages to the exhibition. With quick communications between, Mark, Krystyna, and Emre, a free package was arranged for Krystyna.
Krystyna’s latest ventures include outfitting hotels in the United Arab Emirates, so this show offers her an opportunity to see trends, make contacts, and expand her service offerings to her clients.
