La Bellezza Dei Mobili

Milan is not only the fashion capital of the world, but also home to the amazing Salone Internazionale del Mobile. Celebrating its 51st exhibition this week, the biggest furniture trade fair of it’s kind hit the ground running with a fantastic collection of high quality goods destined for the global market. I had a gander at some of the designers and their fabulous products after the show wrapped up yesterday and thought I'd let you in on the hype and share my Top 5..

This eye-popping Qvarto sofa from Bla Station designed by Borge Lindau is a beautiful piece of furniture. You can use each piece independently or together! It also comes in some brilliant patterns and colours.

Nordic company Muuto have made this cute range of coffee tables. The Around collection, designed by Danish designer Thomas Bentzen come in two sizes and six finishes so you can mix and match to suit you and your home.

A mirror AND a bookcase…genius idea. I love that you can chop and change the display too. Instead of using books, decorate with photo frames and ornaments. This Belvedere mirror from Opinion Ciatti designed by Marcello Zillani will for sure get your visitors talking!

This neo-classical Belle Etoile day bed from Italian company Serralunga and designed by AndrĂ©e & Olivia Putman is elegant, comfortable and timeless. Suitable for both inside and out, UV ray protected and 100% recyclable you can’t go wrong!

Last, but by no means least, this A808 Floor Lamp from Finnish company Artek is designed by Alvar Aalto and comes in polished brass or white painted steel. The base and stand is covered in black leather and will add pure class to any room!
