Memories from Milan - 2

I posted Memories from Milan soon after my visit to the famous Milan Design Week this April. But I do have many more beautiful photos from this charming city. Enjoy some more of them:
The place where I lived

greenery everywhere, very often on the roofs, too:
no boring window decoration - each one is different

Beauty is in details

Duomo - probably one of the most visited areas, but this one is my favourite - it's cozy, sophisticated and elegant:
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II one of the world's oldest shopping malls

Are you impressed
Palazzo Litta - the perfect background for displaying design

Are you fascinated? I am and I am looking forward to seeing more of it next time. See more photos from the exhibitions during Milan Design Week 2017. If you are interested in detailed news and trends analysis, e-mail me.


Hot new kitchens trend:

I saw this trend in Milan during this year's design week and I continue to see it in many new kitchen designs - rediscovering brass:

Not only for taps, but for the whole kitchen island - both, countertop and cupboard covers. Brass is an ancient materials that is strong, good looking and ages well - how do you like the idea?


Modern Bulgarian design with ancient origin

How do you like it? This is a perfect modern interpretation of traditional Bulgarian embroidery motives created centuries ago.
The author of these beautiful creations is a young Bulgarian graphic designer Gergana Stankova, who has researched and found these beautiful ancient patterns from the cupbords of our grandmothers who have inherited them on their home textiles and costumes from their grandmothers. Then she has found a way to transfer these on modern scarves and other accessories based on the beauty of Bulgarian folklore embroidery patterns. Enjoy:


Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance - Design is a balance...

"Design is a balance between context, shape, function, material and its impact"says the designer in his latest interview on Architonic. So much agree! This is one of the best definitions of design and it works for interiors, too. Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance is one of my favourite contemporary designers - both, for furniture and interior design. Enjoy some of the best:

Trend alert: Soft Rounded Forms

This seems to be one of the main trends that we are going to see in furniture design for the coming months or years. We saw it earlier and in April Milan Design Week confirmed it, too. Just a few beautiful examples:

What is trending in tables

Andrew world
I want to share a trend that I noticed during my last Milan Design Week visit and no one is talking about: cones or any other form of large sculptural blocks are preferred by designers for their new table designs instead of the regular four legs. See some more examples:

As you can see, the same goes for chairs and armchairs. Examples will be shown in my next post. Chech more about Milan Design Week 2017.
