The DKOR interior design team is back in Miami after their trip to the major design capital, Milan, Italy. Our modern interior design firm was invited by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and Federlegno Arredo Eventi (FLAE) to attend the 55th annual international furnishing and accessory exhibition, Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
As we promised in our previous blog post of this series, we are bringing to you the best of our experience in iSaloni. Since the first day exploring the Rho fairgrounds we got amazed and inspired with the made in Italy excellence showcased in all the home-furnishing designs. The city by itself is a magical and inspiring place where unique beauty and history can be found in every corner.
The world-famous week long affair for the Italian furnishing market included different expositions such as the annual young designers exhibition SalonSatellite, the biennial EuroCucina- International Kitchen Furniture Exhibition and the International Bathroom Exhibition.
The list of things to see and explore was quite long, but our modern interior design team felt so honored by the incredible opportunity to visit all the exhibitions and learn about all the current new furniture products and trends in interior design.
All of the 1,300 furniture exhibitors did an amazing job, with spectacular interior design booths designed to showcase their most recent collections to the world. According to Roberto Snaidero, President of the Salone del Mobile.Milano, around 67% of the furniture fair attendees were from abroad, confirming the fair as a strong point of reference for the home furnishing industry.
The Italian Trade Agency (ITA) kindly arranged guided tours for our modern interior design firm to select exhibitor booths like Baxter, Gervasoni, Club House, Porro, Arclinea, Veneta Cucine, Rapsel and Newform. We found a wide range of products, furnishing, lighting products and décor accessories.
For those who didn’t have the opportunity to experience Salone del Mobile Milano this year, we’ve prepared a collection of our favorite findings and rounded up the new trends in the interior design industry:
- PLAYFULNESS WITH COLOR AND MATERIAL APPLICATION
- UNCONVENTIONAL SPACE PLANNING
- ASYMMETRICAL DESIGNS
- CLUSTERS OF FURNITURE
