Soft landing guaranteed
Over the last decade, B&B Italia and designer Jeffrey Bernett have been quietly modifying and tweaking the 'Landscape' chaise longue, first launched in 2001, to make it the perfect number for an afternoon nap. Finally they've found the secret. Unveiled in the brand's Via Durini showroom, the 2011 edition incorporates an all-important rocking motion, as well as a new top cushion element for extra comfort. It is joined by new products from Antonio Citterio, Patricia Urquiola and Vincent Van Duysen.

Via Durini 14, Milan
Once again, the design world is honing in on Milan and Salone mania is about to be unleashed. The fair runs from 14th to 19th April but attempting to see everything in just a few days is likely to induce a meltdown. So, to spare you your sanity, we've compiled our annual edit of the show highlights.
A new extension to the fair this year is the Ventura Lambrate zone, whose industrial history makes it rife with gallery spaces. The area will play host to an exciting collection of exhibitions by the likes of the Royal College of Art.
Can't make it to Milan? Fear not. We'll be decamping to the city to bring you news about what's hot and not live from the fair. You'll be able to see all the wonders the design world has to offer for 2010 from the comfort of your chair. Just log on to Wallpaper.com to be kept up to date.
