Last month Llama Group & Janey Butler Interiors visited Milan to attend the world's biggest design fair, Salone del Mobile 2018, otherwise known as Milan Design Week. During our visit we were able to view beautiful rooms and installations showcasing up-and-coming talent within the design world.
The team were very excited to attend the 57th edition of the Milan furniture fair and explore the city; Italy's cultural metropolis of fashion and design. In 1961, the original focus of the fair was to promote Italian furniture, the annual event is now the largest trade fair of its kind in which those within the design industry gather together in Milan to view the world's latest furniture and design. The global event is described as being a "forum for ideas, creativity, technology, innovation and culture, illustrating the new modes of home living.” It is a central hub for those in the design community to connect and celebrate creativity and innovation.
It was a great opportunity for the team to discover emerging designers and acquire a better understanding for our existing supplier's brand and creation process. The fair featured a stunning selection of lavish furniture, which incorporated rich colours with luxurious textures. In addition innovative lighting and home accessories that were truly inspiring were amongst some of the quality pieces we know will look great in our Llama Group home and commercial projects. Here is a selection of our favourite finds.
