In Photos: Our Picks For Best Collections From This Year's Salone del Mobile And Fuorisalone
Over the years, we've been exposed to an array of beautiful homes from all over the world and have grown to admire the architects and designers that bring them to life. But if you're anything like us who wondered just where exactly they get their ideas from, you've come to the right place, and we've done the detective work for you:
Many of the most forward-thinking and creative designers head over to the annual Fuori di Design, an event that brings together the best in areas of furniture making, art, and even jewlery and fashion accessories, as well as the Salone del Mobile Milano (otherwise known as the Milan Furniture Fair), an Italian furniture and design accessory fair that sets the global direction for what trends, styles, and inspirations the most stylish spaces will be based on.
Together, they're considered the most important displays at Milan Design Week staged every April, an event attended and participated in by both the world's most accomplished and up-and-coming names in the world of design.
Now on its 58th edition, the Salone del Mobile Milano continues to gather professionals and design enthusiasts from all over the world. Together, they discover the many innovations and creative displays in the industry that we, the products' end users, can also marvel at and appreciate.
Only the best of the best and those with the brightest potential make it to the central displays of the Salone del Mobile Milano.
Meanwhile, the Fuorisalone that was established in the 80s has evolved into a hub of everything design-related. Unlike the Salone del Mobile, the Fuorisalone showcases are scattered throughout the city rather than centralized in a single venue, and feature works in automotion, technology, telecommunications, art, fashion and even food.
Making art and design a more exclusive experience by bringing them to the masses, the Fuorisalone has gained popularity over the years and is now a must-see for Milan natives and international travelers alike.
Bringing you the highlights of both events, check out our top picks from Salone del Mobile Milano 2019 below:
