Italian Furniture: New Trends from Salone del Mobile 2019
At Grayson Luxury, we don’t focus our design work or product curation solely on “trends.” We believe in the design that’ll stay in style for years to come and will look great in your home today. With that in mind, we used our expertise to report on the most interesting trends from Milan Furniture Fair 2019!
Salone del Mobile Milano is the largest trade fair of its kind in the world. It's held annually in Milan every spring. People come here in April to see the latest in furniture and design. This amazing opportunity brings the top design brands to one place, so it's an important event for those who love interior design. It's pretty much a combination of all furniture fairs from countries around the world.
We have some good news for all of you out there who love vibrant pops of neon, rich jewel-tones, geometric prints, brass, glass, mirrors, and other reflective surfaces. They dominated the showrooms at Furniture Fair in Milan this year. The ’80s with a contemporary twist stole the spotlight in the showrooms of Louis Vuitton, Cassina, Dimore Studio, Moooi, Nilufar Depot, Studiopepe, Sawaya & Moroni and more.
A return to handcrafted authenticity is becoming much more popular in 2019. The handcrafted sculptures and design objects made of materials like wood, ceramic, travertine, and marble placed next to pieces of furniture, create contrast and sophistication, improving the interior. Brands such as Nilufar Depot, Molteni & C, and Ceccotti Collezioni, were displaying a lot of raw, handcrafted pieces at the Salone del Mobile this year.
Sustainability in the Design
Increasing awareness of environmental disaster motivates people to prevent it. Sustainable design seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment. Designers and brands are rethinking the lifecycles of their products. The circular economy/circular design focuses on repurposing of material to bring it new life and new meaning rather than recycling it.
