Salone del Mobile, Milano: Innovative Table Designs

On April 23rd, Milan’s prestigious Salone del Mobile, one of the largest exhibitions of designer furniture in the world, came to a close. Many brands participated in the exhibition to confirm the quality of their products and assert their high status in the market. Most of them collaborated with our store, VIZZZIO, which is why we decided to devote some articles to reviewing the novelties presented in Milan.

The majority of the innovation presented was in the form of tables, including dining tables, coffee tables, and console tables. The exhibition demonstrated that classification is a fragile concept and functionality is paramount. Even though the table is already a multifunctional piece of furniture, the manufacturers decided to improve its design so that customers have no doubt about choosing between purchasing a separate ottoman and coffee table or a table that can be used as an ottoman. New mechanisms were also introduced that allow small models to be enlarged to the size of huge dining tables without losing their visual appeal.

Why write when you can see it all with your own eyes? Let’s take a closer look at the new tables showcased at Salone del Mobile, Milano 2023!
