i saloni: tables and chairs inspiration

Choosing the right table and chairs is quite a difficult thing to do. In fact it is one of the most common question my clients ask me during or after the renovation.

Here are a few the tables and chairs I liked the most at the latest Milan Design & Furniture trade show. Hope you can be inspired.

Above and below, from Bontempi Casa, Artistico both solid and slender, I liked this elegant and contemporary table that mixes dark wood and white, straight lines and curved ones. By contrast, chairs are soft and “fuller” (with arm and back rest)

Below, always from Bontempi Casa, Logan http://www.bontempi.it/casa/prod-details/58-tables/64-tables/67442-logan, again thin and curve white legs (but metal this time) and a solid worktop.

Chunkier wooden tables for the Grey series of Gervasoni by Paola Navone mixing classical and contemporary lines and presented with contrasting chairs and big lighting fixtures. “Gray integrates “gustavian” and “scandinavian” styles into a harmonium and contemporary collection of casual furniture.”
