Milan musings

I Saloni Milan
Good Monday everyone…
Not much time to blog so I will propose you to read the interesting post
from the Blog Informed, written by Paul Sjaarda, part of the team at Inform Interiors, the iconic furnishings and lightings source in Vancouver.

He is presently in Milan for I Saloni, the annual major furniture fair where I could not go this year, so it is great to be at least virtually in Milan through Paul’s adventures.

I am going to sip the cappuccino with him in the morning, then take the crowded Metro to the Fairground, when returning to the city centre I will jump on a bike of the fantastic service BikeMi to go to an event at a showroom…

like this one last year at Nilufar Gallery with Barnaba Fornasetti, son of Piero


Brillante Interiors and Patricia Urquiola at I Saloni 2011
I will have a chat with Patricia Urquiola at another event…then stop for  a pre-dinner drink at Bar Basso (see my previous post on this famous Milanese cocktail place where I started appreciate Alexander, Manhattan, Negroni and of course the huge Mangia e Bevi)



I Saloni 2010 341
and finally, after a nice dinner in Brera area I will go to one (or two?) Design party…



Knoll party I Saloni 2011
So easy and I am not tired yet, it is only virtual, remember?

Tomorrow is another day and I may rent a Fiat 500 to go to Zona Tortona.

I truly miss the action and the excitement of this crazy-fabulous-fun-exhausting week!

And don't forget to play the game: Can you guess whose house is this?

Hi Albarosa--Yes, you had some super posts from last year. Thank you for sharing your virtual visit. I have missed your posts. Be well. Mary

As I told my friend and fellow designer David Hansen who is on his way to Milan, I am chartreuse green with envy. I must go next time, have to find the time! Perhaps we can meet up Albarosa and take a trip up north to Austria afterwards.

Cheers,

Claudia

There is still very little published about Urquiola's new designs this year - it will be interesting to see it.
