Just come back after a really intensive and exciting week in Milan looking for new ideas and inspirations .
The Italian furniture fair Salone del Mobile, is one the most important event in Europe, especially if you want to discover the new trends, design and materials for the 2015.
And now, we are ready to share with you what we spotted out.
1. Jungle and Safari Style
No doubts. The protagonist is the wild nature.
Installations, wallpapers and objects are inspired by the tropical jungle environment.
Luxuriant plants are strongly featured across a diverse range of exhibitors and markets, from the high-end luxury players to avant-garde designers and more established brands.
Hermes was the pioneer of this trend in the 2014 but now also Missoni, Louis Vuitton and Casamania follow this new tropical passion. The objects are not design to control the plants but they try to underline the strength and beauty of the exotic nature.

The “objects nomads” launched by Louis Vuitton remind to us the idea of unexplored world and new adventures. Ready to explore the jungle?

2. 3d and reflective surfaces
No more flat surfaces for our furniture. Definitely the trend is to add a gorgeous 3D effect to our cabinets. As Emmemobili did on its collection and the result is something unexpected and really pleasant to see.
Vice versa, the “design queen” Patria Urquiola launched another successful and brilliant idea. She added a reflective, multicolor film to her latest glass tables collection and once again, she obtained a magnificent and unpredictable object .
We wrote about this material in our latest post. It will be an essential component for our future furniture. Especially for lights. Vibia used it for its new collections of lamps. When you turn on the light, it creates a charming and fascinating mood, shaping high-contrast lights and shades.
When it is combined with wood, it helps to make your furniture less serious and “heavy” (visually speaking).
