The overriding trend at the 2018 Salone del Mobile is the reappearance of furniture typologies: no more wall-units devised to contain everything, but cupboards, chests of drawers, sideboards and writing-desks, designed for specific functions.
Standing out among the new proposals are dressing tables and mirrors, representing a seductive invitation to rediscover time for dedicating to personal care. Mirrors come out of the bathroom to decorate the living room as well, enhanced by decorated frames and offered in fancy shapes, inviting you to take a fleeting glance to check on your appearance. The dressing table is returned to its rightful place in the bedroom, equipped with mirror and drawers for holding make-up, designed with contemporary, lean and essential outlines. There’s a welcome return of the classic valet stand, that useful piece of furniture equipped with clothes hangers and surfaces onto which you can place your daytime wear and empty your pockets. These classic furniture types, which seemed to have disappeared from our living environments, are produced by some of the new-generation designers who show that they are especially sensitive to traditional practices.
