ECC have just returned from their 35th year at the Milan Furniture Fair, otherwise known as Salone. The businesses’ managing director Mike Thorburn says there was a natural trend at this year’s fair: “there was an overall feeling of softness in the collections with a colour palette that included pastel shades. Organic shapes were evident [and] plush velvets were favoured.” On the lighting side of things, Thorburn notes that there was a variety of size, styles and materials.
As for what we can expect to see instore, Thorburn says there will be satin and bronze seating, woven textures and handblown glass effects.
