LINE ’Em up!
While 2017 saw modern oriental make its mark as one of the fair’s key trends, this year, the look crystallised into a trend for straight, slatted lines, giving a hint of eastern elegance to beautiful new designs.
Gallotti&radice used corrugated, hand-turned, lacquered wood to add soft pleats to its Nori coffee table, while its east-meets-west Ki screen featured vertical and horizontal lines fused with satin brass panels. Styling on the stands followed suit, with
Gandia Blasco creating a supersized pergola, while Giorgetti and Fiam paid tribute with repeating strips in canaletto walnut and glass.
