Bradfords Visits The Milan Fair 2022

20 Jun 2022

Milan Design Week is the world's most extravagant design event, centred around the Salone del Mobile Furniture Fair and featuring events across the city's design districts.

Salon del Mobile usually takes place in April, but the event was pushed back for the second year in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic and took place in Milan from 6 to 12 June 2022. This year it was the 60th anniversary of the fair, showcasing more than 2,000 exhibitors – a return to its pre-pandemic size for the first time since 2019.


The main trend was a continued shift towards soft and organic colours, shapes, and textures. Natural colours dominated with natural neutrals at the centre of the palette with early greens and reds emerging. Circles and curves continue to take over from sharpness and straight lines while texture in fabrics and on hard surfaces is getting stronger. The clay finish by Bonaldo was a favourite of ours – watch this space later this year…
