Punt had some really exciting new products. The Literatura Light and new Stockholm sideboards were particularly cool.

For the first time Tom Dixon exhibited in the main hall at the Salone fair. His stand as expected was stunning. With clusters of Beat lights, mirrorballs and new furniture it was a feast for the eyes.

Kartell went for a Precious Gold theme and it sure lived upto the billing. A collection of classics and new products in Gold, Silver and Copper Hues. Who should brush past us looking at his new designs, none other than legendary designer Philippe Starck.

Vitra didn’t fail to impress with some stunning new pieces from Barber Osgerby – our particular favourite being the Mariposa Sofa, Alexander Girard re-issues and new colours for the Eames Chairs.

Amongst the hundereds of Italian companies stood out the quintessentially British brand SCP and what a breathe of fresh air it was. Re-issues from Jasper Morrison, new Donna Wilson, shelving from Terence Woodgate all very exciting. My only regret Whiskey was being served from 4 but I didn’t quite make it – next year hopefully!!!
