5 Trends From Salone Del Mobile, Milan 2015Posted on: April 29th, 2015
April is one of the most anticipated months for décor lovers. In part because of the Salone del Mobile Milan, the world’s most important furniture fair.
From the 14th-19th April, the 54th edition of the Salone del Mobile was a place where well-recognized brands and young talents showcased their newest creations to eager designers and buyers from all over the world. This year’s edition also featured its bi-annual lighting exhibition, Euroluce, showcasing amazing pieces and rediscovering form beyond function.
We’ve selected these five trends to give you a glimpse of what happened in Milan.
Trend #1: Marble
Marble was a big trend last year and has grown strong in 2015. It’s a classic architectural element no longer restricted to luxury vanities or floors. Marble also can be spotted in many pieces such as table tops, trays and accent pieces.
Trend #2: Wallpaper
Bold, colorful and playful patterns to be explored by the ones that want to cover their walls with contemporary prints.
Trend #3: Multi-Purpose Design
Furnishing has been used for more than just one purpose for a while. Cattelan Italia showcased multi-purpose cocktail tables that could be broken up or stacked to serve as shelving or side tables.
Trend #4: Memphis Design
Kartell brought nine furniture and home ware items by Italian designer and protagonist of the Memphis movement Ettore Sottsass. It’s another trend spotted in last year’s edition that still strong today.
Trend #5: Classic
The combination of artisanal techniques, precious materials and a look at the past to bring back updated classics is a huge trend, especially if you mix some of these classics with modern furniture and accessories.
