Design Week in Milan starts today, April 17 and runs until April 24. For those of us who are unable to visit Design Week in person, I thought I’d share a glimpse into this wonderful week which showcases the best in Global Interior Design from all over the world. And to also let you know where you can get the best updates direct from Milan.
The Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano (Design Week) began in 1961, with the original focus being Italian furniture. The trade show has grown over the years to include a global focus which literally takes over the entire city; it now includes Salone del Mobile at Rho showgrounds and the Fuorisalone, a series of events and exhibitions that spread across seven districts in Milan.
They say it is a “Must See” for Design professionals, curators, manufacturers and appreciators at least once in their lifetime. So whilst I busy myself sorting the logistics of a future trip to Milan; I’m thinking, with today’s technology, we too can easily enjoy Design Week from here in Australia. Both the Salone del Mobile and the Fuorisalone websites are informative and worth a visit. I also suggest following Salone de mobile.Milano on Instagram for a minute to minute updates. Vogue Living will also be sharing their own daily – updates from their team on the ground in Milan. And Stylist Bree Leech is also in Milan and posting the most divine & colourful updates; Go follow her on Instagram!
