4 interior design trends spotted at Salone del Mobile in Milan

In June, interior architects, designers, retailers and influencers from all over the world gathered at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Decospan's Wood Consultants were also there to catch up on the latest interior design trends. Here is a taste of these 4 trends.

“Biggest design fair in the world”

Biggest design fair in the world 

This year, the event was moved from April to June. That did not stop visitors from coming to the famous 'Milano Salone'; not for nothing the largest interior and furniture fair in the world. The place to be for inspiration for the coming year, thanks to the prevailing vibe, the presence of major international brands and special installations.

Luxurious materials

At the fair, we came across striking, fancy stands with high ceilings and luxurious materials for an extra chic look. It soon became apparent that gold and bronze elements are back in fashion, raising the feeling of luxury in any interior to a higher level. At the Blok stand, for example, we saw beautiful creations by Dutch designer Carina Riezebos with Infinite Wood, Parky and Frozen Walnut. 


Cosiness all around

Many exhibitors also placed a clear focus on interiors that breathe tranquillity, warmth and cosiness. Natural materials were omnipresent: a lot of wood, natural stone and natural, soft fabrics. It is clear that our interiors are increasingly designed as cosy cocoons, where we can escape from the busy outside world for a while. 

Our Astrata Slats, the veneered slats, are also in line with this trend, especially as a room divider which can provide the finishing touch to a cosy interior. 

Retro is quite the trend

Retro design was a clear trend at the fair, with many stands giving off a vintage seventies vibe. In terms of colours, anything seems possible, but the trendy colours are terracotta, green and dark brown. Lilac and pastel pink and green also do well. 

Back to nature

The 'back to nature' trend certainly does not mean that interiors have to be sober. You see them combined, for instance, with an abundance of indoor plants, which are also added in vertical setups. Originality is apparently in high demand. We also noticed the popularity of slatted structures in veneer. Relief and organic forms have been an interior design trend for some time. Also striking wood and veneer types with a special pattern or uniquely processed can turn an interior into something special and bring nature to life in your living room or bedroom.
