Another trip to iSaloni has come and gone; a week of nonstop walking, talking, schmoozing, and drooling. Consistent every year, each booth was built to impress filled with brand new products displayed for the very first time; some yet to see the light of day. Although the weather wasn’t very cooperative, the energy was high throughout. Hundreds of thousands of people made their way to Milan to be inspired and bring home some incredible new collections. We did exactly that…
We are very proud to announce that we will be working with new lines such as Jesse, a complete line of contemporary furniture with clean lines and unique identity, and Arketipo a wonderful sofa manufacturer based out of Florence bringing a more traditional feel to our collection. In the end, it seemed like our main purpose was to find some accessories and smaller items for the showroom and we did exactly that. Lines such as Bitossi, a ceramic manufacturer offering products by iconic designers such as Fornasetti, Karim Rashid, and Fabio Novembre; ArtBeat, a humorous collection of ceramic dolls designed by different designers, each extremely unparalleled, and Bio, ethanol fireplaces great for any space.
Needless to say, we were not let down by our current suppliers as they all displayed some wonderful pieces we wasted no time ordered for the showroom. The Big Table by Bonaldo in the new solid grey oak top with anthracite legs, the SheLLf wall-mounted bookshelf by Kristalia, New York lounge chair by Saba, the very creative Chariot trolley by Casamania, and so much more.
This years common theme aside from the continuation of last years ‘white and walnut’ overload was yellow…yep…YELLOW! Its about time because what other color puts a smile on peoples faces more than yellow? Its the color of the sun (who doesnt love the sun?), the color of bananas (everyone loves bananas), and the color smiley faces!
