Casa Design has returned from Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2017 with news of exciting launches from our vast roster of international brands. This year’s fair was one of the most impressive exhibitions to date, boasting a record number of programs, events, and exhibitors. Up-and-coming trends were evident: woven rope, belting, and fringe, richly-hued velvets, mobiles, mixed marbles, and tons of terrazzo! It would be impossible to recount every exciting design and detail, so we’ve narrowed it down to our “Top 10” favorite new designs from Milan Design Week 2017.

2015 was Sebastian Herkner’s year. The internationally esteemed German designer — heralded for his inspired use of color, texture and material — took home six international accolades for his extraordinary work in the past year alone, including the EDIDA Elle Decoration International Design Award for Best International Newcomer. Catching our eye in 2016? His inviting Ala Armchair for La Cividina.
A true appreciator of design can’t help but curate a few favorite pieces from designer collections each year, but there is also comfort in selecting timeless furniture items that become personal favorites and can be kept part of the household’s furniture rotation year after year. We suspect the diamond back high chair from Danish designer Foersome & Hiort-Lorenzen will become exactly that.
Moooi designs evoke grandeur and the elegance of another era without being superfluous. Their designers have a knack for using clean, simple lines – and often geometric patterns – to create luxurious results.
Moooi Blends Grandeur With Simplicity
Here are examples of furniture pieces that, in the words of Moooi, bring “…a touch of grandeur to your home, without conveying the firm austerity of real antiques.”
Riva’s Venice console from Casa Design was featured in Editors’ Picks in Boston Home magazine’s issue. The beautiful console was designed by famous Italian architect and designer, Claudio Bellini, who also created the elegant Peak table that was profiled in “geometry lesson” by Kara in the magazine’s winter issue.
Thoughts of summers spent listlessly on the French Riviera linger and are the inspiration behind the Ethimo new Knit collection by Patrick Norguet. Reminiscent of the relaxed and peaceful scenes surrounding Marseilles, the collection exudes a classic warmth and beauty from each and every joint and stitch.
