Milan Design Week The design trends that remained after Milan Design Week 2018

There were a lot of design trends that still remained relevant even after the end of this year’s Milan Design Week. We bring you some trends that are still relevant after all this time.

New Wood

Charcoal oak was a key element for this trend seen as its elegance helped in the making of pieces such as Porada’s Torii stool in Ash, or Poliform’s Kensington table. The elegance of the material aligned with the creativity of the designers was an excellent combination in both these cases.

Using Tweed like Leather

This trend may challenge the use of leather as the luxury textile of choice. There were many classical designs remade this year in fabrics and a favorite one was Bouclé tweed. It appeared on chairs, sofas, headboards, stools among many others, giving the products a more tailored look to them.

Straight Slatted Lines

This is another trend that steals the spotlight from others geometrical tendencies such as spots, checks or swirls. The furniture pieces that adopt this style somehow gain a zen feel to them as you can see by the coffee table, or the multi-purpose Ki screen from Gallotti & Radice, or the low-lying Fit bench by Giorgetti.

Useful design

More than being beautiful, design has to be practical, and some designers took that concept to heart. A good example of this is a kitchen unit from Giorgetti that unfolds onto a handy kitchen station allowing a person to store some needed kitchenware or some snacks.

Soft Green

Forest Green is off, Soft Green came to stay! This lighter and more sophisticated tone of the color results particularly well in living room furniture, like for example, in Fama’s couches, or in the Drum Stool by Galloti & Radice.

Coral Pink

Love it or hate it Pink still remains a relevant color, especially in a coral tone. This is a great shift from last year’s tone, however, it’s evident that this does give a softness to any furniture piece. As an example, we have Bonaldo’s Panorama sofa, or even Gallotti & Radice’s Sophie chair.

Majorelle Blue

This shade of blue has many names: Yves Klein, Majorelle, cobolt or electric. Whatever you choose to name it it’s clear that there’s a certain glamour to this tone that calls all attention to it. As examples, we have the LA Sunset coffee table by Patricia Urquiola (for Glas Italia) or the range by Paola Navone’s Nuvola for Gervasoni, which definitely gives the color a good name.
