Milano Milano

I finally made it to the Salone Internazionale del Mobile on Saturday, and boy was I blown

away. I have been to Milan many times before, but this was my first time to the furniture

show. It felt like the whole city was my chocolate factory, I really didn’t know where to start.

Luckily my flatmate and I caught up with a friend of a friend at brunch, and he gave us

some quick pointers of where to begin.

 

It rained all day, I got very damp and cold sharing one umbrella, but I managed to see

some pretty cool stuff.

Milano-Milano1-

I absolutely loved this chair! It is by Georg Bechter, a German architect. It caught my

eye from a couple of booths away, it’s a visual feast don’t you think?

This table is by an Italian furniture designer Ivo Leemans. The legs are joint together to

support the table through the two holes. Yes ladies and gentleman, no glues used!

For me the beauty of this rocking chair is the craftsmanship. It’s by Laboratorio

Controprogetto. Wouldn’t it look amazing in an English cottage, by the fire place….on a

cold winter’s night…?

 

Even the famous via Monte Napoleone was adorned with beautiful lamp shades.

These are some more stuff that I liked, but sadly I can’t remember who their designers are.

I really like these, very weird and wonderful!

These adorable little stools looked too good to sit on, so I had to ask first (to avoid any embarrassments).

….….so she stood on it to prove it to me.

That hammock would probably be more comfortable with a couple of pillows thrown in.

I literally stopped when I saw this light, yes it’s even more beautiful in real life!

….and last but not least, one of the Fabrica Exhibitions. Certainly a unique take on ceramics.

This is my favorite, I love the combination of metal and ceramic.

 

That’s all folks!

 

Did anyone’s else go the exhibition? I would love to see some pics, especially as I only

went for a day.

Feel free to visit my blog for more design stuff.
