MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2018
Whilst walking the districts and exhibitions in Milan this design week, a key trend that came to the forefront of many independent design and branded stands was the common use of black inked Ash. This beautiful variation of wood stood out as a key turn in direction when it comes to primary materials within furniture. Compared to the scandi style that has been saturated throughout the market for a couple of years, the dark timber adds a great new dimension to the market. The darkness contrasts beautifully with the grain that Ash offers, and the craftsmanship within the items of furniture is exaggerated too. Definitely a favourite to watch out!
