The keywords of Salone del Mobile

If innovation, research and quality are the guiding values of the furniture brands in creating ever more captivating proposals with an international flavour, the key concepts behind the trends featured in this edition of the Salone are certainly more numerous and varied.

Starting with contemporary elegance: a combination of minimalism and functionality, craftsmanship, technology and digital know-how is giving rise to a new aesthetic interpretation created with highly-prized materials, subtle luxury, warm and soft materials.

The matter of storage is another guiding concept in the design pavilions, tackled through multifunctional solutions that can be adapted to different residential scenarios. The rigor, the volumes, the sizes or the heights are brought into play, along with the material and colour combinations, but the aim is always to ensure storage space to complete the great compositions for the day and night areas.

There’s no lack of references to the past and, in particular, to the much-loved fifties; a nostalgic touch, filtered through a more contemporary approach, emerges from the numerous new editions of bestsellers and iconic products that pepper the history of design and the companies taking part.

It is this unshakeable love for tradition that makes wood – in all its forms and in combination with other materials – a timeless element in contemporary production.

And if the interior is expressed in all its infinite expressive possibilities, the outdoors is not being neglected either.  The interior design companies are transferring their know-how to the external environment in proposals that mirror the contemporary comfort and elegance of the living spaces in a unique stylistic dialogue.
