Hello!I’m so sorry for the absence during this last month, i couldn’t even read properly the other blogs I follow… phew! I was really busy with work, and had no time to report anything. During April, as usual, took place in Milan the “Salone del Mobile”, one of the biggest display of interior design, as you sure know. It’s always a funny experience, I love to have the chance to see on preview what will be “trendy” for the home one year later.
This year the leading role was for the kitchens, with EuroCucina, that take place every two years. The real innovation for kitchens will be the games of simmetry/asimmetry between the elements, as well as the modularity: every company is moving in the direction of giving to the customers the possibility to “invent” their own kitchen, mixing two/three kitchen types where before was inconceivable. Another original idea is the chance of personalize cabinet doors with your own drawing/photography: doors are literaly “printed” just like a wall being covered by fancy wallpaper.
Something new is evolving also for the bedroom: before there was a clear division between wooden and upholstered beds: nowadays, these two typologies are melted together, with wooden panels supporting the cloth-covered ones, creating really uncommon effects.
Seeing these beds I can’t help quoting Le Corbusier: “L’arte del decoratore consiste nel fare nelle case altrui quello che non si sognerebbe mai di fare nella propria.” (that is – The decorator’s art consists in doing in other people’s homes what he would never dream of doing in his own. -) Hilarious way to see an interior designer, isn’t it? See you at the next furniture exhibition!
