On the back of our report featuring Video Highlights and Best Stands at Salone Del Mobile.Milano 2016, today’s post looks at some of the hottest new furniture released at the world’s most important furniture fair. I’m taking chairs, sofas, desks, tables, beds, rugs, and occasional bibs and bobs – we’ve got it all covered in this mega roundup featuring the cream of the crop.

Some of the biggest news this year revolved around the ‘Art Director’ – Patricia Urquiola stepped into her role of being the head creative for the revered Italian mega-brand Cassina. Another Italian giant, Molteni&C, announced the appointment of Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen as the brand’s new creative director. Kartell expanded their significant offering by releasing a debut collection of kids furniture, with a number of other brands releasing pieces that seem to be a prelude to following in Kartell’s footsteps. The strong theme of dipping into the archives and re-issuing the furniture classics continued from the recent years for many of the brands, although this year felt like the most positive and optimistic edition in the recent times with strong and abundant new collections by many of the major players.

So without further ado, above and below (in the image gallery) are some of the most notable new releases and re-releases from Salone del Mobile.Milano 2016. It’s a seriously epic roundup (when is it ever not?), so I hope you can stay with me without hyperventilating or passing out. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, k?
