Milan furniture fair 2011: The wonderful, the weird and oh-so-much in between

April 27, 2011 |  9:56 am


We blogged a lot on the Milan furniture fair, the world's largest home design exhibition, where companies premiere their new collections at events throughout the city. We saw dining tables topped with giant ceramic tiles, chairs made from ax handles, chests of drawers crafted from vintage suitcases and a whole lot more. Now the coverage from Milan design week has been compiled in one convenient photo gallery. Enjoy.
