Milan 2007: Sofar Sonear Open Showroom


The date marked in red in everyone's design calendars is fast approaching. The annual Salone del Mobile in Milan starts next week on April 18th. All the cutting edge design world's most influential and powerful will be showing off their wares. Though, enormous and impressive as this international event is, it isn't always the most inspiring for us designer TreeHuggers; searching for needles in hay stacks would be more rewarding! But there are always little gems to be found, if you look hard enough. One of our top recommendations for this year's Salone is the Italian design company Sofar Sonear who will be opening up their first showroom in Milan for the furniture fair. After their success showing at 100% Design in London last year and in Paris earlier this year, Sofar Sonear are now taking their growing collection of sustainably produced high end fabrics, rugs and furniture to a more permanent home. You can visit their new showroom from 18th April at Via Solferino 24, Milano. :: Sofar Sonear
