For the first time this year, we managed to visit the extraordinary Salone del Mobile during Milan Design Week 2019. If you are not familiar with the event I will explain it to you here: it is a major event for architects, designers, interior designers, contractors, lighting designers, interior bloggers, and anyone working (or loving) within the main topic: Design. The Design Week is divided into two events that stroll during the week: the Fuorisalone and the Salonedel Mobile. At Fuorisalone, anyone can visit showrooms of interior and lighting brands, plus in the city you will find exhibitions held by famous designers and architects. This is the most artistic and creative event and what distinguishes Milan Design Week from others in the world. We decided to focus on only one event, the Salone del Mobile.
This event is held in the pavilions of Rho-Fair, a bit outside Milan city centre. The space was very large and we could not visit all in the only day available. Here, we found many inspirational brands for indoor and outdoor furnitures. From the most famous iconic Italian brands, like Minotti, Giorgetti, Poliform, Flexform, Porada, to some new discoveries like Mambo Unlimited Ideas, Casa, Pianca Design & more. Everything was stunning, innovative and of very high quality like only the "Made in Italy" can provide.
Here below a summary of the trends and most extraordinary furnitures we explored.
Easter is approaching and so that time of the year to gather together with your relatives.
If you are a big family, like mine, this means days of preparations ahead the big day.
When I was living with my parents and sister, I always liked to take care of the house, decoration, tableware, flowers and candles, while my mother and sister would prepare tons of food that could satisfy an entire army.
I think those days were my first steps into my beloved profession.
Today, I still find much more exciting polishing the glasses, preparing the flower decorations and choosing the right ornaments than cooking. I would like to share some tips and DIY ideas for this Easter season.
Outdoor design plays a very important role as much as interior design. Perhaps, with the arrival of spring, some of you are thinking about decorating ideas for your garden, terrace or, for the lucky ones, the pool area. Like an indoor living room, the outdoor ones need to be planned and must follow a scheme. All whites, whites and dark greys/browns are my favourite palette. The style of your outdoor furnitures is very much personal, but, I would keep it related to the indoor space and the architecture style of the house/flat. For example, if you live in a Victorian house perhaps modern furnitures can be blend with some more traditional. There are plenty of suppliers of beautiful outdoor furnitures. I believe Italians design brands have done something extremely extraordinary, as they were able to produce timeless pieces at a very high quality. Here below, I would like to introduce you to some of my favourites in terms of material, flexibility and professionalism for deliveries and orders management.
