This years’ Salone Del Mobile came and went in a flash and treated us to some gorgeous furniture in the process. Salone is the creme de la creme of the yearly furniture shows, and it’s cemented itself as the most eagerly awaited furniture show in the calendar. Predicting trends and upcoming trusty pieces to incorporate into designs is what Salone does best and this year didn’t disappoint. A few PENSON designers were lucky enough to witness the delicious offerings first hand, including the beautiful city of Milan…think coffees, gelato, chocolate…jealousy was definitely rife in the office when they returned!

If, like most of us, if you couldn’t make Milan, then thankfully our designers took some snaps.

Here we round up our designers’ favourite images from the event:
