Trends at Milan Furniture Fair and Milan Design Week span many industries from homewares & living to industrial design & contract. I think that's why many are drawn to Milan to gather inspiration and why the show has grown to be a design mecca for more than just furniture junkies.
Soft texture is another trend that spans the genres - upholstery that resembles soft flowing silks, a loose snuggly doona or material [be it fabric or even paper] that is quilted, pleated or ruched to create volume or texture.
[p.s Doona is an Aussie term for Duvet]

Complex Simplicity :
Raw timber, muted colour & shades of white, unexpected natural materials, a return to traditional methods or materials for modern objects...
