This year the International Furniture Fair in Milan celebrated its 50th anniversary with its largest display of designer products and a great attendance from around the globe.  An impressive collage of latest design trends and innovations in modern furniture unfolded as we continued our buying expedition, landing us inside Presotto’s immaculate showroom and later in front of Magis and Edra, needless to say, jaws had to be prevented from dropping.

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Our annual trip to the 2011 International Furniture Fair in Milan has sadly come to its conclusion as we landed late last night at JFK Airport.  Although some levels of separation anxiety from the world’s designer modern furniture wonderland are hard to ignore, it is exciting to share some snapshots of what this year’s fair represented from the perspective of practical and livable furniture as well as one-of a kind masterpieces.

Butterfly Kisses

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Creative representations of butterflies have been used in many cultures for over 3,500 years, often symbolizing beauty, love, rebirth, freedom, grace and innocence.  So it comes as no surprise, and perhaps a bit overdue, that this universal symbol enters the enchanted and creative world of modern furniture design in the form of the Butterfly coffee table realized by a young Bulgarian designer, Svilen Gamolov.  A fascinating and pure cornucopia of elegance, Butterfly modern coffee table is a multi-dimensional and highly aesthetic concept brought to fruition using glass, plywood, and glossy lacquer fused into exceedingly precise object with no ostensibly functional restraints.
