Comfort, colour, and sustainability stand out in Milan

It’s been three years since the last full-scale Milano Salone del Mobile (Milan Design Week). Post-pandemic, the way we engage with private and public spaces has completely changed. Flexible working is the new norm, and globally the mood is shifting toward hopeful optimism.

It’s thrilling to see large-scale events return, and reconnect with the international design community for a week of inspiration, innovation and craft.

We sent journalist and UFL brand ambassador Emily van Velthooven to report back on the Salone. In our Milano Memo, we capture musings from her diary, and share some key trends and themes of Milan Design Week 2022. The report also contains your first look at new releases, plus updated classics from our exclusive European brands. All embodying comfort, elegance, and sustainability.
