Just back from the Milan Furniture Show which this year proved to be the show of contrasts and change. In the plethora of a lot of the same by most of the mainstream leading brands one could not fail to notice the Design flair and new Proposals of Baxter and Henge

This year Paolo Bestetti the owner and force behind the company has outdone himself with a new fantastic external furniture line and a unique new design direction for the indoor furniture.

Using a number of known premier Designers he has created a new Line which fresh, modern and timeless, using exquisite materials and generous dimensions. It really has to be seen.

A new company which is making waves among design circles is Henge. The company has managed to secure the designer of Ceccotti Massimo Castagna as their new Design Director and he has transformed the design approached of the Henge. We will be watching them closely.

The Other big surprise was Baccarat. The leading word brand in Crystal Chandeliers and Decorative Objects choose to host a reception in the Centre of Milan and put on show their new proposals with six premier international designers among them Jaime Hayon, Philippe Starck, Mathias, Marcel Wonders and Arik Levy each one presenting their design.

The Event was fantastic and the chandelier designed by Philippe Starck is amazing, so much so, that we immediately requested and managed to secure one of this pieces which is in limited edition. Baccarat promised to send us one for the opening of our new BAXTER AREA showroom in September.

Hopefully we will be able to give a sneak preview of this unique chandelier to friends and clients who have requested to see it when this arrives.

New things to look out for is Il laboratorio dell’imperfetto. Sculptor and Painter Verter Turroni and Emanuela Ravelli are experimenting to bring together Sculpture and Furniture, with the end result being original and primeval at the same time.

Also we finally found an exclusive, quality carpet manufacturer in SAHRAI. The Italian based company, third generation Iranians produce Persian high quality silk carpets with a modern twist and their price is really value for money.
