Earlier this year, I took a trip to to Milan’s Salone de Mobile to check out the best in furniture, lighting, and kitchen design. So many things impressed, but what stands out were those showrooms that highlighted craft, traditional technique, fine materials, and precise detailing.
Fashion houses led the pack. Hermés home collection of fabrics, lighting, vessels and quilts, all done in the fashion houses exacting craftsmanship, drew envy and awe.
Loewe had an exhibition incorporating traditional Japanese basket making, Ikebana and modern sensibilities.
While new trends in lighting were on view, with color being the big revelation, some of the pieces that stood out the most were very old-school.
Mirrors, and mirrored objects, reflect my interest in perception and experimentation in subtle ways to expand space.
Finally, inspiration lay around every corner in Milan. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
