Salone del Mobile. Milano: Fresh Sofa Collections

On April 23rd, Milan’s prestigious Salone del Mobile, one of the largest exhibitions of designer furniture in the world, came to a close. Each year, the organizers provide vast exhibition halls for diverse furniture manufacturers to showcase their innovative developments in interior design. It is a celebration of craftsmanship and science, aimed at discovering new aesthetic techniques and improving our comfort. Many brands participate in the exhibition to confirm the quality of their products and assert their high status in the market.

We decided to begin our review with furniture, which is an essential component and the main focal point of any living room – the sofa. At the Milan exhibition, visitors could observe luxurious new designs, the highest level of comfort, unusual additions, and the use of new techniques to support sustainability. Now, it’s your turn to explore these offerings!
