Hello, sports fans! That's right: Milan's annual design fair happens next week, and it's big, bad, and enough of an endurance test to qualify as spring training. As you read back in February, Cosmit, the Italian organization behind Salone Internazionale del Mobile, is ensuring that 2013 will be even better than usual—including a new city and museum pass that's being incorporated into the ticket price for the fair. One thing to keep in mind (as with all design fairs worth their salt) is that the off-ground exhibitions are as exciting as what's happening on the official schedule. Click through our slideshow for a peek at what brand new furniture will debut next week, and read on below for a cheat sheet of where to go in Milan. Read Full Article
