Time goes by and even with Milan Furniture Fair 2015 being now history, Milan Design Agenda still have a few ideas that can bring up the best of your home décor. All you need is to get inspired and have in mind the following living room furniture ideas!
Driven by bronzed brass for furnishing and upholstery, Meridiani introduced at Milan Furniture Fair 2015, a soft tones collection! Characterized by linear shapes and enhanced by strong tactile and visual values thanks to surfaces and fabrics proposed in soft tones and sophisticated textures, Meridiani reached our hearts.
Light furnishings and small upholstered items suggest an interplay of lines and proportions made precious by the warm reflections of a bronzed brass finish.
Minotti always pleasured its followers by offering living room set between classic and contemporary, adding always the “surprise factor”! Having Rodolfo Dordoni leading Minotti’s new interior design projects will rose the “WOW factors”.
For new Minotti collection Rodolfo Dordoni draws upon the rational thought expressed by the Modern Movement, while at the same time taking inspiration from the plastic, sensual shapes of the more dynamic architectural movements.
The 2015 Collection is artfully balanced between contemporary design and modern classicism, distinguished by restrained, tasteful elegance, while introducing elements of surprise and offering new design perspectives.
Seymour was conceived of the idea to create a seating system that maintains a distinctly formal precision while surrendering to the desire for curved lines in an elegant succession of soft, inviting volumes.
In clear contrast to the strictly geometric shapes that distinguish the Yang seating system, the Seymour sofa expresses a softly feminine comfort and sensual elegance, drawing its inspiration from a dynamic, sinuous architectural language.
A nature inspired furniture brand, that after 3 years exhibiting at iSaloni, already conquered Milan Design Agenda and midcentury home decor followers! At Milan Design Week 2015, BRABBU introduced new pieces, combining colors and different materials, which can suit your own living room ideas.
At iSaloni 2015, BRABBU introduced a new sofa. NAU name is intended to honor the ancestors and achievements of the Portuguese navigators, who dominated the sea routes for centuries. It is a legacy that will never be forgotten and will continue to reflect the very design of BRABBU.
As an essential piece of any modern living room, a lounge sofa is the furniture piece where we choose to relax and enjoy some time.
At Milan Furniture Fair 2015, Baxter introduced the result of a constant attention towards research, where architecture, furniture and works of art merge. A very essential and linear structure, it draws inspiration from the minimalist aesthetics promoted by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Carried out through the use of big blocks of concrete at sight, that recall a sensation of materiality, this architecture composes a frame which guards marked references, placed in the various rooms, where the obsessive attention towards the detail becomes almost extreme.
The colours of upholstered furniture are dull, soft and warm, intentionally desaturated but at the same time with a strong character. That’s how an ashen blue, a mastic pink and a sand colour of soft leathers are matched with green and grey shades that characterize polished leathers.
In this way, leather nuances are emphasized and enhanced through combinations with neutral materials, where raw material becomes main character. The rough concrete and the burnt wood of small tables, the lamps’ brass, the linen and the wool of rugs coexist, creating an overall vision among colours, matter and design.
Inspiration source for the carrying out of references rich in colours and in natural materials is a recall to tribal art, that has contributed to the reassessment of Berber rugs, both in terms of geometric shapes and in terms of colour shades; a mix between modern techniques and local materials typical of tradition.
The new projects were assigned to the designers that have been working with Baxter for much time: Paola Navone, Roberto Lazzeroni, Vincenzo De Cotiis, Draga Obradovic & Aurel K. Basedow, Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez, Doriana e Massimiliano Fuksas. Beside these names, the precious cooperation with the artist Antonino Sciortino is born.
“Memoirs of great design!” could be Poltrona Frau introduction at Milan Furniture Fair 2015! A hundred years since the birth of Tapio Wirkkala, an important figure in Finnish art and design, Poltrona Frau revisits a piece of which, until now, only a handful of examples existed.
The “Bird” side table is a project that symbolises Wirkkala’s natural and organic poetry, that joined to Poltrona Frau ‘The Icons collection’, the collection that ‘collects the great memories of design history.’
Sinuous shape, at the same time simple yet abstract: Bird side table is inspired by the silhouette of a winged animal, a recurring theme in Wirkkala’s work as a sculptor and designer, along with shells, ice and leaves.
For the first time, Poltrona Frau has mass-produced the side table and faced a real manufacturing challenge in doing so.
