In the design industry, the key to success is constantly staying educated and informed on new technologies developing for domestic spaces. To stay ahead in the extremely competitive market of interiors, it is imperative to be knowledgeable on new innovative designs, styles and trends. At Exclusive Home Interiors, traveling to trade shows hosted worldwide is crucial. Our team prioritizes introducing the American population to interior products from abroad. In the United States of America, Italian interiors are often perceived as a luxury commodity exclusively enjoyed by privileged, upper-class citizens. The American society has not yet accepted the practicality and quality of such product. Our goal, at Exclusive Home Interiors, is to educate New Yorkers and to convert these common misconceptions.
Salone Internazionale del Mobile is the largest interior trade show hosted annually in three major cities: Milan, Moscow and Shanghai. Founded in 1961, the exhibition serves as a global gathering point for all industry professionals. Every April, the primary show is hosted in it’s birth city of Milan. Salone del Mobile.Milano is the official umbrella organization that has developed seven different sub-organizations. Each year, board members of the central organization elect a theme for each show to present. Manufacturers who are featured in the shows are challenged to design according to the designated category. Because of the abundance of participating companies, dividing each show into sectors is extremely helpful. The sub-organizations developed thus far include, Eurocucina, Euroluce, Workplace3.0, SaloneSatellite, Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Salone Internazionale del Complemento D’Arredo and Salone Internazionale del Bagno. The above categories, in order, directly translate to Euro Kitchen, Euro Lights, Office Spaces, New Generation Designers, International Furniture, International Furnishing Accessories and International Bathroom.
Last week, the Salone del Mobile.Milano was held in Moscow, Russia.The focus of the convention was Salone Internazionale del Mobile, or in other words, the central theme was International Furniture. The main concept presented by designers was to encourage the future of luxury furniture. The people of Russia are extremely keen and observant of quality interior products. Moscow’s traditional and modern architecture is breathtaking and filled with historical references. Gaining approval and demand for home furnishings from the Russian market is equivalent to gaining approval from the world. It is not simple to impress Moscow’s general public. The biggest challenge for exhibitors this year was to present traditional old fashioned glamour in a modern space. This year’s trend, designed by both veteran and contemporary brands, was characterized by geometric shapes, innovation and color. Over 300 international companies such as Missoni Home, Fendi Casa, Cappellini, Carpanese Home, Colombini Casa and more, showcased a wide selection of contemporary, traditional and decorative furniture designs.
This year, the people of Moscow were in luck because Salone del Mobile.Milano highlighted not one, but two sub-sections within the organization. SaloneSatellite was also featured in last week’s exhibition. The purpose of developing a show like this was to expose both the public and industry professionals to designers under the age of 35. SaloneSatellite is an opportunity presented to industry newcomers. There are so many young people who show such promising talent, dedication and knowledge of technology. The skills provided by new generations of designers are so important for innovation. Traditional brands will never not be popular because they create timeless designs that can forever be enjoyed. However, updates to interiors and home goods are constantly progressing to pacify the public’s need for new technology.
The next Salone del Mobile.Milano exhibition will be hosted in Shanghai on November 22nd-November 24th. Final preparations are currently taking place for the show, and designers are hard at work creating signature masterpieces. Shanghai is a city known for it’s innovation in technology. It is a “smart” city, where automation exists to make life easier. It will be interesting to observe how global designers integrate their furniture collections with the futuristic and advanced city.
