As a designer, there are many Home Furnishings shows held worldwide throughout the year. In my opinion, one of the best shows for a designer is the iSaloni, also known as Salone Internazionale del Mobile. This show is held in Milan, Italy (one of my favorite cities!) and as I explore iSaloni, I wanted to share my experiences with you.
At the iSaloni, a designer has the opportunity to see the most luxurious home furnishings and lighting, kitchen & bath designs that are absolutely breathtaking! Each year, they alternate between Lighting and Kitchen & Bath designs.
From Classical Designs to Transitional, Contemporary Designs, there is something new and spectacular for every taste.
The iSaloni is the global benchmark for the Home Furnishing Sector. Attending this show provides an invaluable tool for our industry…around the globe to network and create a business relationship. The iSaloni made its first appearance in 1961, designed to promote Italian furniture and furnishing accessories on the export market, and it has continued to do so impeccably, ensuring that the quality of Italian furniture is known worldwide and continues so bring in its visitors from all parts of the world.
The show begins tomorrow but before we begin that adventure, let’s do explore Milan by going to their spectacular restaurants and shops!!
As my husband and I sit at a local cafe, we love to people watch and experience life with the locals. Milan is an amazing and energizing town filled with some of the most chic men and women!! What’s interesting is that one is even more chic than the other… As you enter the city, you are instantly blessed with their fruit stands and the fragrance of beautiful flowers in their flower stands. Their scent is as unbelievable as their presentations. Can you tell that I love Milan?
Come take a walk with me down Via della Spiga (Italian pronunciation: [ˈviːa della ˈspiːɡa]). This is one of Milan, Italy’s most prestigious and upscale shopping streets, forming the north-east boundary of the luxurious Quadrilatero della Moda (fashion quadrilateral), along with Via Monte Napoleone, Via Manzoni, Via Sant’Andrea and Corso Venezia.
