Founded in 1961 as a vehicle for promoting Italian furnishings and exports, the Salone del Mobile soon became a mecca for design-loving pilgrims and exhibitors from around the globe. Over a half century later, the Salone del Mobile and its satellite events are collectively referred to as Milan Design Week, and with the wrap of this year’s festivities we’ve curated a few of our favorite finds. From the beautiful to the quirky, elemental to the extravagant – we hope you enjoy our curation! Above – Limited Edition Ora 23K Lamp by Ross Gardam.
