This is the third post in my Jennifer on Design series, a monthly exploration of the trends and inspirations that are shaping the way designers approach interior spaces around the world. You can read my previous posts here.
Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011, also known as “Milan Design Week” is one of the largest furnishings and accessories exhibitions in the world. One of the major trends I noticed last April involved curves. We found many examples of furniture pieces and installations where hard angles have given way to gentle curves—particularly where planes meet—resulting in flowing, organic shapes in seating and tables.
Below is a slideshow of some of the great examples of curves we saw at Milan this year.
