Save the Date! Salone Del Mobile 
April 17 – 22, 2018 


a.k.a Milan Design Week ….. a.k.a Isaloni… Milan Salone… Milan Furniture Fair… the furniture equivalent to Paris Fashion Week…

Whatever you know it as, Salone del Mobile Milano has long been the largest and most prestigious furniture trade fair in the world.

The annual fair welcomes design pilgrims from all over the world, including the team at Inside Out Contracts to visit and discover new furniture designs, trends and innovations launched by its more than 2500 exhibitors; most of whom are Italian and have long been the influencers of furniture manufacturing over the last century.

Exhibitors range from famous and well established design houses such as Kartell, B&B Italia, Mooi and Cassina who often feature the most exciting and outlandish exhibition stands; right through to the opposite end of the spectrum where new entrants to the fair’s exhibitor list include emerging designers and furniture makers from Scandinavia, South America and Asia.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:
  • WHO? Furniture, Lighting, Textile makers & designers from across the world
  • WHAT? World’s largest furniture design trade fair
  • WHERE? Milan, Italy
  • WHEN? Annually, April 17-22, 2018
  • WHY? Discover new furniture design, trends and industry innovations

Trends in not only furniture, but also textiles lighting and fashion emerge from the Salone as a series of new collections are launched and artistic installations dotted around Milan take centre stage on Instagram.

Attending in what will be our 18th year, we’re expecting to see hundreds of new and noteworthy designs from our existing furniture makers that tap into these emerging trends.

We’re also expecting to see how last year’s trend of ‘mixed materials’ will transcend into more complicated forms, in turn fuelling innovative techniques for furniture makers; along with new trends in the emergence of design-led interiors for casual dining.

WHAT WE'RE EXPECTING:  
  • 100’s of new designs to bring back to London
  • Inspiring artistic installations
  • Innovation in furniture making from the mixed materials trend
  • Design-led furniture purposed for casual dining venues
