HOMI Milan Fairground report


Held between the 27th-30th January 2017, HOMI Milan is a lifestyle trade fair dedicated to allowing trade visitors and buyers to meet, discuss, and share upcoming lifestyle trends. With many international editions available (HOMI Moscow and HO.MI. New York), the fair has had a long and illustrious history in Milan, which is well regarded as an excellent Metropolis for building stylish homes and lifestyles. The letter O in HOMI represents the circle that encircles the environment and the person, while the MI pays homage to said metropolis of Milan.

The next edition of HOMI Milan is slated for 15th - 18th September 2017.

We covered the extensive fairgrounds over the course of three days. With over ten halls occupied with everything lifestyle, from home furnishings to textiles to tableware to home health and fragrances, to jewellery and fashion and tech and gifts, we had our work cut out for us! These are but a few of the products that we saw and loved.

These adorable mugs and espresso cups from Novita are stamped with our favourite things; puppies and cats.

Italian cuisine has long included the use of fish and various other seafoods, so these serving dishes from Nuova Ceramiche Artistiche are definitely on-point! We're also loving them in this range of nautical-inspired colours.

The nautical theme continues into these containers, also from Nuova Ceramiche Artistiche, which we think are perfect for storing necessities like grains and flour in the kitchen.

The island of Murano near Venice has a long history of beautiful blown glass products, and these hand-made lamps from iMuranesi are no less magnificent.

We're really fond of cats, and these trivets from Easy Life's Ceramic Trivet collection are perfect for fueling every cat lady's dreams.

For those who love the concept of an eternal fall, this pouffe from Retorta, shaped to look like a pumpkin, will keep your pumpkin spice lattes closer to heart. They're also wonderfully quaint and squat, so they'll make for the perfect accompaniment to any ornate home!

3SC's marble and metallic collection of bathroom accessories shows us that the combination for luxe is nowhere near out of style! The elegant green-and-rust rivulets in the marble perfectly accent the rose gold metallics, which we think will perfectly suit those with luxurious tastes.

Look out for more trends we've witnessed at HOMI in our April issue!
