MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2019
The trends we observed at Salone del Mobile 2019.
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.
