Every year Milan play host to the most high profile interiors in the world. Milan Design week which is in the month of April takes over the entire city. High-end Fashion Designers, Bottega Veneta, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Armani, Fendi & many more fashion icons showcase their products & brands, merging the lines between Fashion & Homes.

This year, April 2018, I got lucky to be there with my Mentor, Marc, an Eminent Interior Designer from London. Sharing a few excerpts from experience I had while exploring beautiful designs of my favorite designers.

Bottega Veneta

Headed by the creative director Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta’s ground floor boutique in Milan is located in high ceilinged, beautifully be frescoed 18th century Palazzo Gallarati Scotti.

This year they launched its first modular seating system Bottega Veneta Tre. It’s modern in design & function, has a corner section, single seat section & pouf configured to suit one’s need, but it is also modern in design, applying the house’s instantly recognizable interlocking intrecciato design to the sides of its sleek,squared-off, Space Age sections.

A particular highlight of the new collection is in the lighting category: three bronze styles created in collaboration with Osanna Visconti di Modrone. They are made with a lost-wax technique to echo the intrecciato weave. This marks the second collaboration between Maier & Visconti di Modrone, following the set of Bronze tables presented in 2016.

The presentation featured new styles, functions, materials, and colors for both furniture and home accessories. The seating collection has been expanded with both new families and variations of existing ones, featuring unusual details, as well as new colors and materials.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton showcased its objets Nomades collection at Palazzo Bocconi in Milan, last April 2018.

Hop over to original blog post by Shweta Luthra to checkout few collections showcased by some of the world’s most renowned designers like Humberto & Fernando, Campana, Marcel Wanders, Atelier Oi, Patricia Urquiola and Andre fu.

Shweta’s latest passion is “Sacred Energy Spaces”. Under the tutelage of Marc, a highly successful interior designer from London, Shweta was introduced to a new dimension of Creating Energy Spaces a few years ago. Home is an extension of ourselves; ergo, by enhancing its energy in multiple shapes and forms, we can transform our inner capabilities slowly but surely.
