  • The Salone del Mobile is the International Furniture Fair of Milan, the largest decoration tradefair in the world. The annual show showcases the latest in furniture and design from international sources. It is considered by interior designers as a leading exposition for the display of new products by furniture manufacturers, designers , lighting concepts, and other design items.


    During the fair, Milan becomes a showcase for all things design, so along with the Salone del Mobile official events, a programme ‘Fuori Salone’ (‘outside the showroom’) runs in parallel, and it seems that these satellite design events  around the city are almost more exciting than the fair itself. 


    Zona Tortona is one area in the South West of Milan which has been hosting its own satellite events for many years.... originally as a way to support emerging designers, it has now become popular with some of the established brands too.  Narrow cobbled streets and oh-so-cute little courtyards, cafes and street fair add to the atmosphere.


    Oh how we would have loved to be there....maybe next year....but in the meantime, heres a selection of our favourite images from Lucy @ Design Files who is lucky enough to be there right now, along with a few images from Megan Morton and Felicity Splatt who were there last year.

    Dribble on kids. :)
