Spent this Saturday snapping away at the Salone Del Mobile exhibition in Milan, a showcase for the latest in furnishing and design. It was a massive exhibition space, so having the map at hand was a must.

So much inspiration & great design in one day, here are some of my highlights (but be warned – it’s a lot of yellow!) :

LITTLE BISHOP

I discovered this ceiling hook online and think it’s a very clever and nifty idea. The Little Bishop is designed specifically for cable hung pendant lights, and the clean simple style is perfect for any modern home. It was made by Antony Richards from Melbourne, Australia, and started as a project on Kickstarter. Now the hook is going into production, and is available for pre orders here.

“Let’s make places. Let’s make them extraordinary. Let’s make them full of life and lust, delight and wonder. Let’s make them daring and unusual. Foolish and spectacular. Different and amazing. Let’s make them original. Let’s make them us. Let’s make the places where we love to live.” – Bolia

Had a little browse around at Bolia yesterday and found quite a lot of great items, both new and old. This Landscape Daybed for instance is so lovely with it’s clean and simple lines, perfect for daydreaming or a little snooze. The backrest is designed to look like a mountain top, and gives a nice Scandinavian feel to any space. Pair it with this cool Orla Wall lamp for a match made in heaven.

SCANDI | JOHN LEWIS

“Scandinavia is known for its love of minimal, functional design, and this attitude pervades every corner of this cool, tranquil scheme.” – Ben Spriggs

This dressing table & stool both from Bethan Gray is so beautiful, and my absolute favorite items from the SCANDI collection. The dressing table is made with solid oak and has a marble top and brushed solid brass handles. The stool is also made with solid oak and has a upholstered grey fabric seat.
