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.
The dining table is a classic furniture piece – symbol of home, family and delicious meals. Meridiani’s Spencer Table is a modern take on this classic symbol, combining a solid and immutable presence with a sleek aesthetic.
As designers, curators, and distributors of modern furniture and furnishings, we strive to remain neutral. Everyone’s taste is subjective, right? However, we can’t help but play favorites once in a while, and Meridiani rugs certainly fall into that category.
The Cloud Collection by Meridiani is aptly named. While the furniture maintains the sleek, streamlined design modern outdoor furniture is known for, the designers bunked the idea of minimalism when it came to the cushions and covers. Just like the name implies, this collection is made using generous cushions, making the Cloud Collection every bit as comfortable as the furniture in a traditional living space.
The framework for the Cloud Collection is made from Iroko wood. This solid Japanese hardwood was given a white finish that weathers well and eventually develops a silver patina indicative of natural wood. The cushions are made from water repellant fabrics. They are available in a wide variety of colors that complement the whitened Iroko finish.
Pieces in the Cloud Collection include several modern outdoor furniture options. They include:
- A Sofa. The Cloud sofa is built for two but can comfortably accommodate two or three.
- Arm chairs. The arm chair is an ideal spot for sipping cocktails or picking up a book or magazine.
- Lounge beds. Add an extra dynamic to an outdoor living space using the Cloud lounge bed, ideal for napping, stargazing, or sleeping outdoors.
The Cloud Collection makes it an easy transition between comfortable indoor/outdoor living and entertaining.
