The Salone Internazionale del Mobile, or more commonly known as the Milan Fair to the English speaking world, had came and go in April 2013. Due to my overseas posting, I could not get the latest update out in time. To make up for not updating for the past 2 months, I will be picking my favourites from the “Show of Shows” and posting these new updates from the major brands. Although it’s old news, but these new designs will probably be available at the stores around the world at around this time (though some retailers are good at getting the latest in quicker than others). I shall present the A to Z of this year’s stars of the show (in my humble opinion) in alphabetical order.
