What to see during the Milan Design Week: 11 stores - etk-fashion.com

Milan is not called the recognized capital for nothingshopping, however, this title is not limited to fashion. Tucked away in the winding streets here are real treasures of designer furniture and luxury items and décor. During Milan Design Week, we strongly recommend visiting one of our showrooms Spring is in full swing - a sure sign that preparations for the iSaloni in Milan are in full swing. From 12 to 17 April, it will be necessary not only to visit the most interesting exhibitions and events within the framework of the Design Week, but also to look into the best Milan showrooms and boutiques. For you, we have prepared a list of 11 stores that should not be overlooked by lovers of design and simply beautiful things. Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta is a world renowned luxury and leather brand, so we just can't help but start with it. In the Milan showroom, located in an old palazzo, you will find home accessories, lamps and furniture, as well as admire the stunning interior that perfectly reflects the concept and spirit of the brand. Address: Via Sant'Andrea, 15.Fornasetti At the mention of Fornasetti, the famous cymbal collection immediately comes to mind. However, this brand offers many more interesting gizmos for the home and, of course, just enjoy the interior: red walls and fancy paintings in gilded frames resemble, rather, a solid gallery than a showroom. Address: Corso Giacomo Matteotti, 1 / A.Nilufar Founded in 1979, today Nilufar is a confident leader in the design world. In the Milan showroom, stylized as an industrial warehouse, you can find almost any product for your home: from luxurious beds to mirrors, vases and figurines. Address: Viale Vincenzo Lancetti, 34.Richard Ginori The name Richard Ginori is closely related to the history of Italian porcelain. The Richard Ginori manufactory has existed for almost 300 years, and during this time it has become so famous that Italians often call “ginori” any elegant porcelain tableware, not even belonging to this brand. As for the original products, in the store in Piazza San Marco you can find a variety of hand-painted dishes and purchase both a whole service and individual gizmos: for example, a plate or tureen with the famous frutti italiani ornament (drawing of plums, apples and figs ). Address: Piazza San Marco, 3.Spazio Pontaccio The Spazio Pontaccio design boutique is breathtaking as soon as you cross the threshold. You can visit it just for the sake of a mesmerizing interior, but, most likely, you will certainly look at something here for the interior you are working on. From sofas with clean, laconic forms and works of art to marble jars and tea sets, here you will find both, and at the same time imbued with the philosophy of the founders, which says that design and life are inextricably linked. Address: Via Pontaccio, 18.BassamFellows Gallery The BassamFellows Lifestile gallery was opened in 2014 in one of the most beautiful quarters of Milan - the Brera district, located in the historic center of the city. It is worth going here if only because the famous Pinacoteca Brera, the Academy of Fine Arts, the Astronomical Observatory and the Botanical Garden are located a stone's throw away. And, of course, you need to look into the gallery itself: the widest selection of furniture and home accessories from the BassamFellows brand is presented here. Address: Via Varese, 14.Carlo Moretti The Carlo Moretti factory was founded in 1958 by the brothers Carlo and Giovanni Moretti. The company's specialization was initially defined as luxury glass products. Today, in the Milan showroom, opened in 2014 during the International Furniture Salon, you can find incredibly beautiful glasses, dishes and glass sculptures. Address: Via della Spiga, 48.BDDW In addition to Italian manufacturers, foreign brands are also actively conquering the Milanese market. For example, recently the American furniture company BDDW opened its second store (and the first one outside of New York) in this city. Here you will find the trademark of the brand - wooden furniture, as well as textiles and accessories. Address: Via Santa Marta, 21.Taschen We decided to dilute the company of designer showrooms with the Taschen bookstore. The renowned German publishing house specializes in art albums and books on photography, film, music, design and architecture. Each book of this publishing house will not only be useful for designers and simply art lovers, but, without a doubt, will decorate any bookshelf. Address: Via Meravigli, 17.Rossana Orlandi The Rossana Orlandi Gallery opened its doors in 2002 in a former tie-making factory. Today it is not just a showroom, but also a special self-sufficient world in which the famous gallery owner discovers new talents and gives them a ticket to the bright future of design. It is worth coming here, firstly, to admire unusual and non-circulated items and accessories for the home, and secondly, so as not to miss the chance to communicate with their authors, who can often be found near their expositions. Address: Via Matteo Bandello, 14/16.Minotti Cucine Minotti Cucine is natural stone and minimalism with an authentic Italian twist. It is worth going here at least to understand why many people go crazy about these kitchens. Also, you are guaranteed an inoculation of pure minimalism - the interior of the showroom is laconic to the point of impossibility. And almost every day during the exhibition week you can talk here with the founder and owner of the brand - Alberto Minotti, a charismatic and surprisingly talented man. Address: Via Larga, 4.
