0 Dispatch from Italy | Day 4 SALONE DEL MOBILE 2015

A pink swing from SoftLine

Guest post by Alessandra Barlassina of Gucki

This was my first time at Salone del Mobile and let’s say that the fair is huge: 21 halls. Today and tomorrow it is open to the public.First thing: you have to decide what to see. These are the categories: classic, modern, design, Euroluce, Workplace, Salone Satellite. I’ve seen “just” design halls (8!), a quick tour in Workplace (2) and Salone Satellite, I will tell tomorrow about the last one.

  
All the design and furniture companies are present  at the fair with amazing booths. It’s crazy what they build for being here for just one week! This is the place where find new trends. This is what I liked and from we can take a lot of inspiration!

Guest post by Alessandra Barlassina of Gucki

Zona Tortona. First stop: Ikea temporary shop, Via Vigevano 18. The new collection in cork, Sinnerlig, is really nice. You’ll find it in stores from August. Ikea is very friendly as always and doesn’t forget about our battery recharging needs!
