Essential Trends

Another year and once again the Milan Furniture Fair is hosting the principal design companies, who are unveiling the new trends that are coming for the 2018/2019 season.

On visiting the fair we see that the Nordic decorative style is disappearing in favour of a more retro style, characteristic of the 50’s and 60’s, tubular structures, circular forms and floral finishes; leading brands such as Kartell, Magis, Moroso and Jasper Morrisson are joining this new trend.

At this new edition, as we saw in the previous one, there are still sofa, chair and bench suites made in perforated plate, juxtaposing the solid and the void, so as to free part of the structure and achieve a lighter, more industrial appearance of the materials; Gandía Blansco, Magis and Dedon are moving in this direction.

Warm colours are coming to the fore, different tones of green, terracotta, pink and yellow, in their deepest shades and pastel, moving away from brighter colours and bringing a natural, peaceful air to exterior spaces.

We highlight Tórtora and bronze colours for the frames, bringing us to an earthier world where brown has the same importance as more traditional grey and white.

As far as finishes go, both for resin and aluminium, matt is gaining precedence over gloss, the latter increasingly absent in new furniture collections.

As we were already heralding  with the launch of our new EVA PRO sunlounger made from 100% recyclable resin, the ecological trend is getting ever stronger and becoming increasingly important. There is research into recyclable and biodegradable materials, as we can see in the Satellite Salon, where the brightest emerging talent exhibits, directed by Marva Friffins, and where on this occasion the awards have gone to designs with recyclable materials.

We also find this maxim with the new chair presented by Kartell, the BIO chair, manufactured in an innovative ecological material, heralding that it will become a general trend in the immediate future.

The Milan fair is not to be missed by design and decoration lovers, and for yet another year it has been an inspiring experience for the creation of new outdoor furniture collections.
