The Salone is now into its 55th year, championing innovation and internationality – in fact the number of foreign exhibitors has risen again, now making up almost 30% of all the manufacturers at the fair. It is clearly going to be an interesting edition, both in terms of the wide-ranging commercial offering from a line-up of top specialist companies on the national and international market, and in terms of the search for a balance between tradition and innovation in the name of quality and culture.

One of the furniture brands I always look forward to checking out their new designs is non other than luxury brand Fendi Casa. This January they presented their latest collection for 2016 and it is all about their new favorite fabric, blue velvet, and beautiful gold and brass metals.  Velvet is definitely one of the strongest finishes making a grand comeback recently. Almost all furniture brands were adopting this versatile yet tricky finish. Many attempts are being made to make it more practical, heavy duty, yet silky smooth.
