Milan’s Salone show in April is now an annual ritual for me and provides an intense concentration of the latest design trends and styles in one place.
But, it’s really Nilufar that makes my trip. I wouldn’t dream of going to Milan either alone or with clients without visiting the gallery on Via della Spiga or Nilufar Depot in the City’s northern suburbs. These stunning spaces showcase the highlights and must-sees from Salone and are a genuine feast for the senses.
Since my student days, midcentury design and Italian buildings and furniture have been a true inspiration to me and Nilufar has it all. Immaculately curated, the shop, apartments and vast warehouse space fuse vintage pieces with new designers styled in complex yet stunning sets. This is a go-to source of inspiration for me when it comes to furnishings, collector’s pieces and ideas. Founder, Nina Yashar is a true genius and her helpful and welcoming team is just the cherry on the cake.
