Salone In­ter­nazionale del Mo­bile

First staged in 1961, the Salone In­ter­nazionale del Mo­bile has come to be known as the big­gest fair of its kind for de­sign en­thu­si­asts. Held ev­ery April in Mi­lan, it show­cases a wide range of fur­ni­ture, light­ing and home dé­cor by de­sign­ers from across the world. In its 53rd edi­tion in 2014, over 2,500 ex­hibitors will be pre­sent­ing their de­signs over a gi­gan­tic area of 230,000 sq m. The event calls upon over 300,000 visi­tors from all over the world to in­dulge in buy­ing, sell­ing, ex­hibit­ing and sim­ply ed­u­cat­ing them­selves on var­i­ous as­pects of in­ter­na­tional de­sign. The fair will be split into three stylis­tic cat­e­gories—clas­sic, mod­ern and de­sign.
