Salone del Mobile 2014 preview
Design pilgrims are already beginning to flock to Milan ahead of next week’s Salone del Mobile (8-13 April) – the world’s most important design fair and the unofficial start of the design season. This year’s Salone happenings are woven into the entire fabric of the city, from the apartments of Brera to the historic buildings of the city’s newly minted 5vie art and design district in central Milan, to the post-industrial warehouses that make up Ventura Lambrate – not to mention the Rho fairgrounds themselves. With so much to see, navigating it all can be tough. Here, we round up the top 25 exhibitions to see.

One of Milan’s finest design galleries, Dimore Studio is blossoming into the big leagues this year with a newly expanded showroom in Via Solferino. The space will feature fresh designs by owners Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci, from lighting and rugs to tables and seating. The new pieces will join the striking vintage collection the owners are already known for.
