It goes without saying, but the Salone Internazionale del Mobile furniture show in Milan is an exciting experience for everyone who attends, especially those who are in the design and interiors industries. For Eric Kole and Jason Claire, it’s a chance to see what’s new from well-established manufacturers and to see who’s new in the world of design.
This year they came back with some new lines for the store (more to come on that later) as well as several trends to share with you all. Here’s a small recap…
The rugs at the show were deeply jewel-toned and monochromatic. What was most interesting about them, however, was the way in which they were distressed. Many looked almost threadbare in the treatment of their surfaces. Regardless of how “worn” the rug was, though, there was still a beautiful color or pattern visible.
If you’re one to keep your furniture fairly neutral, a vibrant rug is a great way to bring color to a room.
There’s just a couple of trends left from Milan. Check back with Design Clique to see what it is!
