Best Booth Designs at Salone 2013

As you may have noticed, Dwell is in Milan this week to scout for new furniture, accessories, and lighting at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile and the various satellite fairs around town. It's a veritable circus of design: Last year, over 330,000 visitors ascended on the fairground at Rho, and the experience comprises way more than a sofa here or lamp there. Companies spend years developing the products and prototypes they unveil in Milan, and just as much thought goes into the exhibition design. Designers like Luca Nicchetto (remember that name; you'll be hearing it a lot more!) and Konstantin Grcic introduce a handful of products each year, and booths to boot. Take a look at some of our favorites.

Color Story: La Vie en Rose at Salone Internazionale del Mobile

Over the past year or so, we've noticed a pink trend happening in furniture and textiles (and it's not just our rose-colored glasses). The traditionally feminine hue has staked its claim on all manner of interior spaces, from crafty upholstered pieces to sleek yet warm Scandinavian furniture. Next month's furniture issue delves into the look, but in the meantime, here's proof that the color won't look dated any time soon: a roundup of pink-toned pieces on the floor at Milan's annual furniture fair.
