April is here, and if you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know it’s the time of year when the most important design shows and fairs are taking place globally. And again this year, our international interior designers are taking you to one of these major design events (and one of our favorites!) held annually in Milan: Salone del Mobile 2019.
If you’re not familiar with the design trade fair Salone del Mobile, we’re talking about the largest furniture fair in the world. What makes this fair even better? It takes place in Milan, known as the design capital of the world, at the Rho Fiera Milano. There’s no better place to get a good dose of design inspiration!
Salone Del Mobile 2019
At Salone del Mobile 2019, like each year, the best manufacturers from all over the world will be unveiling the latest design trends and presenting their new products. Starting on April 9th and running until April 14th, there will be six major exhibitions open, each one focusing on a specific area of furniture and design.
The 2019 edition of Salone del Mobile includes well-known exhibitions like Salone Internazionale del Mobile (furniture), the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition (home decor and decorative accents), Workplace3.0 (devoted to design and technology in workspace) and SaloneSatellite (international event in the design world dedicated to the under-35s).
Salone Internazionale del Mobile, with more than 2,350 exhibitors across more than 2.2 million square feet, is always our interior designers’ first stop. It’s split into three style categories: Classic, Design and xLux. We’re looking to discover the upcoming trends in furniture for our residential projects and continuing to cultivate our vendor relationships.
This year it’s also time for Euroluce, the leading international lighting exhibition that takes place biannually. Euroluce started in 1976 and presents the most innovative solutions in the field of light for interiors and exteriors. It’s one of our designers’ favorite exhibitions! We had the opportunity to visit the last edition: Check out our five favorite lightings designs from the 2017 show.
New at Salone del Mobile 2019
The launch of S.Project, a cross-cutting space devoted to design products and decorative and technical interior design solutions, will occur at the 58th edition of Salone del Mobile. This exhibition is a space to present new concepts and innovative solutions to design professionals. Architects and interior designers from all around the world will study the latest trends on materials, finishes, and ideas for future projects. We’re definitely looking forward to visiting this new installation.
Be sure to follow us next week on social media to get the fresh news about the big trends directly from Milan. And stay tuned for our recaps of Salone del Mobile 2019 with our favorite findings and exciting trend updates on the blog. Of course, if you’re going to be in Milan for the show, see you all there.
