The trends we ob­served at Sa­lone del Mo­bile 2019.

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

Sa­lone del Mo­bile 2019 ex­hibits an im­pres­sive show of sup­port to mother na­ture, with in­di­vid­ual de­sign stu­dios and brands show­cas­ing in­spir­ing ways for in­cor­po­rat­ing greens into the home. We also ob­served a pro­nounced ap­pre­ci­a­tion for nat­u­ral veins in marble and pat­terned Ter­raz­zos. De­sign­ers have em­braced sus­tain­able and raw ma­te­ri­als, hand­crafted furniture and tex­tured tex­tiles with aplomb. The 58th edi­tion of Sa­lone del Mo­bile also placed em­pha­sis on per­fect forms, ar­chi­tec­tural shapes, and tech­no­log­i­cal de­signs, all dis­played in in­spir­ing ways re­flected by the in­di­vid­ual booths, in­stal­la­tions, and pop up stores ex­hib­ited within and with­out Fiera Mi­lano.

TRENDS FROM MI­LAN’S 2019 FURNITURE FAIR

Mi­lan De­sign Week 2019 wasn’t rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent from 2018’s, with some trends that had de­vel­oped, while oth­ers burned out. There were fewer ex­am­ples of leather and fur, as brands shift to re­spon­si­bly sourced ma­te­ri­als with fewer waste­ful pro­cesses. Eco­con­scious and sus­tain­able ma­te­ri­als, sculp­tural shapes and tech­nol­ogy-crafted de­signs were still big in this edi­tion.

Brands chose many colours, rang­ing from pas­tels to vi­brant shades. Muted hues set the scene at Br­era De­sign Apart­ment, along­side soft tex­tures at Plan­e­tario, a project by Cristina Ce­lestino for Be­sana Car­pet Lab.

Bolder colours were dis­played at The Cassina Per­spec­tive, a new cat­a­logue by Cassina at its Mi­lano show­room.

Here, we have picked out a range of ex­cit­ing prod­ucts avail­able on the mar­ket that will have your home look­ing on-trend.
