Milan Design Week 2019 News and Trends from the Milan Furniture Fair Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone
WHAT IS THE MILAN DESIGN WEEK?
The Milan Design Week is at present the most important Design and Furniture show of the year.
Located in North Italy, it’s a global design event which includes all design industries from all part of the world, taking place every year one week in April. Milan Furniture Fair 2019 took place from Tuesday 9th to Sunday 14th April.
It is at present the most important Design and Furniture show on global scale. I feel so lucky to live close to this super important event. Indeed, I’ve been visiting the MDW for years now: I started to go in Milan more than ten years ago and visited the event first as a design professional, than as a press professional and trend forecaster. During these years, I saw how this event has grown to become really the key event of the year for all interior and design professionals &lovers.
The Milan Furniture Fair reveals the biggest design trends for the upcoming years in interiors and design.
This year again we will be working on two editorial projects, in order to give you the best coverage of the event:
the second issue of our Trendbook N/T , with the top events and a forecast of the upcoming design trends.
a new Trend Webinar, in collaboration with SOMA.
Both projects are totally independent and non-sponsored. Know more about them in this page.

Why a book about the Milan Design Week?
Milan Design Week is currently the most important Design and Furniture showcase of the year.
Located in Northern Italy, it’s a global design event including design industries from all over of the world, which takes annually for one week in April. Milan Furniture Fair 2018 took place April 17th-22nd.
Due to its international acclaim, Milan Design Week is the best event to spot the latest news and trends in interior and design.
Why is this not only about Milan Design Week?
The Milan Furniture Fair, indeed, reveals the biggest design trends for the future, because in Milan design and furniture brands present their new collections for the first time and independent designers showcase their works.
That’s why this publication is not just about the most recent Milan Design Week, but about what will be next in interiors and design for the following years.

Is this eBook right for me ?
This eBook is for you if:
you work in the design industry, and want to be inspired for your work and stay updated with the latest news and trends on interiors and design
you work in design communication, as a source of research for your articles
you attended the Milan Design Week but had a feeling there was “too much” to see and to note
you could not attend the Milan Design Week and want to stay updated with it
you don’t care about Milan Design Week, but want an overview about the current state of the furniture/interiors/& design industries and what will be next
N/T is a tool for design professionals and design lovers, to be inspired and stay updated with the most current news and trends.
This eBook is NOT for you if:
you are looking to read long texts, because this eBook is mainly about images, brief texts and LOTS of designers names, brands, and details
you are looking for a book in Italian, or in any languages other than English, this publication is NOT for you. But, please note that N/T is absolutely easy to read for non-English speakers because, as I already said, there is not a lot of text
you don’t love design 😛
- N/T IS TOTALLY INDEPENDENT FROM SPONSORS -
Why the cost of the book?
The project is totally independent and self-financed, making it free of sponsors and advertising.
N/T stands for ‘News/Trends’ and also for ‘No Thanks’. The small cost of this publication is set to cover part of the expenses, including original photos, graphic layout, tools for publishing, contributors, and editing.
If you are thinking that the final cost is cheap, compared to the content value of what you will get (and yes it is, trust me), so thinking there must be a catch….well, I invite you browse the blog to learn more about how I work.
- N/T IS THE TRENDBOOK BY ITALIANBARK. N/T second issue follows the very first release published after Milan Design Week 2018, that was sold in almost 100 Countries, truly forecasting what we are seeing now in interiors and design. -
