Every year, designers from around the world gather to explore the world’s largest and most impressive design fair, the Salone del Mobile, also known as Milan Design Week. Every two years they welcome EuroCucina, which is the world’s leading showcase for high-end, innovative kitchens that took place this year. With over 430 000 people attending this year alone, we discovered many inspiring design elements that could be incorporated into the home to transform your space. Here are our top 4 trends that we identified:

It’s all About the Craft:

Pulling together a vast array of exhibits from design experts from around the world, quality and creativity were highlighted on every corner but what stood out was the exquisite craftsmanship. No matter the price, quality and precision craftsmanship will bring about feelings of luxury and opulence.

The Kitchen Transformed:

We have been expecting this for a long time, but the kitchen has officially moved in as the social and living room as well. The designs, appliances and quality all lend themselves to fit into different areas of the home and different functions.

Au Naturel

We love this trend that we saw – lots of designers are moving toward a more softer and natural feeling to their interiors. Making the timbers, tones and textures the hero, don’t shy away from exposing wood grains, stainless steel finishes and the natural veins of stone.

Marble Mania

In all areas of the home, we are seeing more and more marble! Usually installed to enhance the luxurious feeling of the design, it is also being used in playful ways. Ultimately it is always about quality and longevity, so marble is being installed carefully and in a considered way to add a legitimate timeless appeal.
