Bongiorno! Our editors have been on the scene at the annual furniture fair, Salone Internazionale del Mobile, in Milan, Italy. For the past week, we've been vicariously living through their design notes and snaps and with two days to go, we can't wait to show you more. Keep up with our discoveries through our Instagram and check back next week for more of our reports from Salone!
Best Booth Designs—From Lasvit's massive, neon green Cat's Cradle to Vecchetti's exuberantly colored plastic sheeting and upholstery (seen here), we highlighted ten of our favorite booth designs at the fair.
Shelving and Storage—Our editors noticed many a storage piece occupying the floor. Here, Valsecchi 1918's cheerful booth, a towering wooden modular shelving unit, hangs out by a few brightly-topped stools and and chairs.
Color Story: La Vie en Rose—Pink is the new black (again)? We've been noticeably seeing it pop up here and there over the year and our editors recently spotted many a pink-toned product infiltrating the fair's grounds. Scandinavian company Muuto adds to the pool with their puffy Anderssen & Voll sofa (seen here).
7 Facts About Moooi Designer Lorenza Bozzoli—While we're scouting news and furniture this week in Milan, we had the chance to chat with Italian-based designer Lorenza about what it's like working for one of the major contemporary manufacturers (in this case, Moooi) and what it's like living in Milan during the off-fair-season.
