INTERIOR TRENDS | 4 key design trends for 2016 here to last from Milan Design Week


I always love, once back from an event or a design fair, do a little doing some thoughts about the present design trends and what we’re going to see in the future.

What I’m doing is a personal and partial selection: just those features that have caught my attention the most and that I hope (and I think, yes) are going to last. I know it’s no0t a complete list, there were so many things to note as trends in design (thinking for example to black and blue furniture, to modular one, just to name a few)  But let me say: the Pink Dog is partial 😉

There is not only the Design Week in this design round up, but also much more: ready for it?


Mi piace sempre, una volta tornata da un evento o una fiera di design, fare una piccola riflessione in merito ai trend di design del momento e a quello che andremo a vedere in futuro.

La mia è sempre una selezione puramente personale e parziale: certo dalla Milan Design Week non ci porteremo dietro solo questo ma molto altro (penso ad esempio ai tanti arredo in nero e blu, agli arredi componibili, a citarne alcuni), ma queste novità sono quelle che mi sono rimaste più impresse e che hanno attirato la mia attenzione.

Non c’è solo la Design Week in questa carrellata ma anche tanto altro design: pronti?
