Roberto Cavalli

Every year at the renowned Milan furniture fair Salone del Mobile, the world is introduced to the latest interior design innovations. Well-known names like Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli and Armani also take part.

Trend 1: Outdoor is the new indoor

Louis Vuitton has packed his bag and in it he’s put: furniture, or more accurately items for globetrotters. This year the label has presented ten new pieces of furniture in the Objets Nomades collection. The items are inspired by the world of travel – unsurprisingly, bearing in mind the French fashion house originally gained international renown as a suitcase manufacturer. The ten new limited editions or experimental prototypes – they include collapsible chairs, suspended swings and living room furniture – were designed by well-known names like Nendo, Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders. Whether indoors or outdoors, they are genuinely eye-catching.

Trend 2: Metallic glamour

Neither Roberto Cavalli Home nor Armani Casa can bear to produce anything without shimmering accents in gold, silver and bronze. The strictly symmetrical Logo Lamp by Armani Casa holds a classic socket that casts a long shadow over its competitors, while Roberto Cavalli’s typical animal prints guarantee exotic flair.

At Kartell by Laufen a mirror becomes a shining eye-catcher, while Seletti banks on curious banana-shaped lighting and Foscarini gives lamps a silver lining. The bling-bling “metallic glamour” category also includes most luxury exhibitors at the Milan furniture fair such as BelCor and Provasi.

Trend 3: Rainbow villa

With interiors, too, it’s now acceptable to nail your colours to the mast. Marni has carried that idea to the extreme with furniture made of bright PVC string. The pieces in the Playland collection are either merely playful or actually conceived as toys for young and old. Incidentally, the Marni collection was manufactured by a group of Columbian women using traditional craft skills. What’s more, the collection supports charities. Other labels are also showing their true colours – such as Vitra. A yellow sofa adds a ray of sunshine to an industrial loft apartment, while dining table chairs are a mix and match of rainbow colours.

That should be ample inspiration to get your interior design juices flowing. Now for some inspiration as to where to make those ideas a reality right here in the heart of Vienna:
