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.
When interior design maven Alina Wolhardt needed chairs to pair with her custom live-edge dining tabletop in the duplex she shares with her husband, underground sneaker and streetwear scion Jay Gordon of Bodega, she found them in our Moooi Monster Chair.
Not one but two Casa Design pieces from Moooi were showcased in Boston Magazine’s recent roundup of 16 Flower-Patterned Home Accessories: The Nest Chair by Marcel Wanders and the Eden Queen by Marcel Wanders for Moooi Carpets.
Moooi Carpets just debuted last year, but the 15-year-old Dutch company is already making a colorful splash among the design community for its distinctive collections of floor coverings for the modern home.
The holiday season is upon us and a lot of publications present their holiday gift guides to give us inspiration for gift shopping. The Boston Globe compiled a spur of the moment gift guide in its Thursday Scene and featured one of Moooi products – Delft Blue ceramic vase . The vase is a part of ceramic collection designed by Marcel Wanders. It is produced and decorated at ‘Royal Delft’, a Dutch company dating back to 1653 and the original producer of the beautiful Delft Blue ceramics.
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.”
Hanging the Raimond Pendant by Moooi in your home is like getting a glimpse of the universe each time you turn it on to light up a dark space.
