Last week the world of design flew to Milan for one of the most awaited events of its calendar: Milan Design Week and Salone del Mobile.
Born as a side project of the Salone, it is the Fuorisalone that now dominates and spreads all over the city, attracting connoisseurs, amateurs, curious, but also those who are just interested in its nightlife and lifestyle. The main bullet points remain Tortona Design Week, Brera Design District, Ventura Lambrate, Università degli Studi, and Triennale di Milano, but 7 more areas add value and content to the event.

The actual Salone is mainly reserved for the experts in the sector, being open to the general public only 2 out of 6 days, and with quite a pricy ticket. If you knew someone who works inside and could give you passes, discovering the trends of the season got more exciting. While most of the exhibitors used their spaces as simple showrooms, some big brands transformed their stand in beautiful immersive settings that made you forget you were in the suburbs of Milan. 
Top trends spotted: mustard & grey sofas, dark kitchens and wood in every form and shade. Personal favourites: Moroso, Zanotta and Edra.
