Brent has been invited to participate in the Salone Internazionale Del Mobile or “Milan Design Week” in Milan from April 9 to April 14 with our partners Terrecotte San Rocco and Angelo Grassi . This annual event is the global benchmark for the world of home furnishings.
The Salone made its first appearance in 1961, designed to promote Italian furniture and accessories, and it has continued to do so ensuring that the quality of Italian merchandise is known around the world.
In 1965 the leading furnishing companies were brought together in a single commercial exhibition space for the very first time. It was also the year in which exhibitors began to devote serious thought to their booths, which has always made the Salone stand out against other trade fairs. Since then, Milan Design Week has become an important destination for buyers from around the world and the entire city of Milan participates.
This is the second time Brent has taken part in this event and will be assisting in the Terrecotte San Rocco booth, answering questions and forming new relationships. At the Salone in 2011, Brent was introduced to the buyers at ABC Carpet and Home from New York, and we are now working with them to carry merchandise from Rocco USA.
Angelo Grassi is the designer of the Ortovaso, an eco-sustainable vertical wall (vase) that can be indoors or out for many types of plants.
