In 2023, the Salone del Mobile came back in full force! With a fully realized Euroluce and halls upon halls of new collections, the Milan mecca has returned to its former glory. In fact, the 61st edition of the event attracted a crowd 15 per cent larger than that of 2022. And this was fully evident, as manufacturer stands were brimming with visitors and, at some of the most packed brands, back to requiring QR codes for entry.
As we toured the Rho fairgrounds, a number of trends popped up: nature is the ultimate inspiration, as many stands were bursting with plants and trees; relatedly, the outdoors is the ultimate frontier for many furniture companies that have ventured into verdant terrain; the sofa, forever being reimagined, is more communal and transformable than ever before; and bold colour and pattern is back in a big way.
Here are just a handful of the snapshots we took at Salone del Mobile 2023, featuring some of the fair’s biggest exhibitors, from Kartell and Porro to Varaschin and Fantoni.
