Manufacturers at the Salone del Mobile 2019. The style, materials, finishes and trends that will dictate the fashion in furniture sector.
Every year, in April, Milan becomes the world capital of design; exhibitors, designers, producers, companies and architects from all over the world meet in Milan to discover new trends in the world of design. In this 2019 edition there were 2,418 exhibitors, of which 34% from abroad, from 43 countries, divided between Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Salone Internazionale del Complemento d’Arredo, Euroluce, Workplace3.0 and S.Project; of these, 550 designers under 35 took part in the SaloneSatellite.
How the fair was structured:
The fair has been divided into several themed pavilions in order to make the visit more enjoyable and easy. One pavilion was dedicated to classic luxury furniture – a real eye-catcher! Giant Murano glass chandeliers, glass garden fountains, sofas and armchairs covered in precious fabric.
A great success was also the thirtieth appointment with Euroluce, this year’s record edition has brought to the stage an integrated lighting, intelligent, increasingly eco-friendly and at the service of the project and customer’s needs.
This edition of the Salone del Mobile also celebrated the debut of the new Workplace3.0 stories and exhibition routes, distributed inside the fair’s pavilions, which were highly appreciated both by operators and the public and by the exhibitors themselves, who recognised the value of multi-sectorism, synergy and quality. Workplace3.0, is an innovative event dedicated to design and technology for the design of the workspace, which confirms its new vocation: to explore new ways, forms and solutions for the workspace “of the future”, in which the human factor and intelligent technologies play a crucial role.
S.Project, on the other hand, is a transversal space dedicated to design products and decorative and technical solutions for interior design. In total synergy with the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Salone Internazionale del Complemento d’Arredo, Euroluce, Workplace3.0 and SaloneSatellite, S.Project selects, collects and enhances the proposals of companies to offer a 360-degree perspective on interior design and respond to new market needs.
But now let’s get to the heart of the Salone del Mobile and explore the pavilions dedicated to modern design that will furnish most of the homes around the world. Visiting the pavilions we found ourselves in front of companies from northern Europe that proposed a hygge Scandinavian style: handmade furniture with essential design all in wood and excellent quality.
Spanish manufacturers such as Viccarbe and Sancal have presented very modern collections with a focus on quality and durability. Viccarbe’s style is always very refined and elegant thanks to the use of sober pastel colours and the most minimal design possible; the seats strictly covered in soft fabric give a touch of unique class.
Sancal, on the other hand, has focused on the use of colour in furnishing. The high quality furniture represents a real explosion of colour! Wraparound armchairs in red leather, dining tables and chairs in yellow wood, coffee tables with original orange and red shapes… Plus a modern collection of handmade carpets to complete a trendy furnishing, with a strong character but always up-to-date.

Another very important Spanish manufacturer is certainly BD Barcelona Design, famous for reissuing furniture and accessories designed by Salvador Dalì. In fact, its collections are small works of art: original and unusual shapes, luxurious coverings and contrasting finishes.
The Italian Miniforms, known all over the world for its modern and Italian style, presented a very elegant, sober and without excesses collection, focusing on design but also on the aspect of functionality.

Many visitors were able to admire the innovations and evolution of design and were able to take that inspiration that only an event of this type can offer.
