ai3 in Milan: Salone del Mobile

By ai3 Interior Designer, Elisa Gangone:

If you want to see an immense amount of the latest furniture and lighting design, Milan is the place to go! 

I attended Salone del Mobile last month, and they weren't kidding when they said it is the largest furniture show in the world. With 22 pavilions featuring the latest trends in furniture and lighting, there was a lot to be inspired by. We look forward to using some of these fantastic resources on our upcoming projects.  
In the meantime, here are some of our favorites:
