Milan Design Week - Salone del Mobile

DeFrae visited the Milan Design Week Furniture Fair in April 2019 and loved all the new styles for this year.  An array of pastel pinks, greens and blues together with brass and rose gold metal frames were prevalent throughout the fair.   Marble tabletops with brass edging and beautifully upholstered armchairs and sofas in wonderful tones of orange, blue and green.  The outside furniture on display featured stackable metal chairs and flip-top and folding tables, in a wide choice of both pastel and solid colours.

Known in the industry as the Salone del Mobile, the Milan Furniture Fair never fails to deliver.

What is contract furniture?

Contract furniture is different from residential furniture in the way that it has been manufactured.  The highest standards of durability and design combine to ensure that furniture is made specifically for contract use such as commercial properties, leisure centres, canteen's, restaurants, coffee shops, cafe's, retail stores, hospitals, schools, offices and places of worship.  Places where the public put their trust in the hospitality, leisure or commercial property.

Contract furniture is built to last, withstand heavy use and withstand health and safety regulations such as fire regulations. All DeFrae's contract furniture comes with a standard 1-year guarantee and has been tested to the most rigorous UK and EU safety tests.  All furntiture sold for contract use must pass Crib 5 tests which means that they must not ignite from a test of a lit cigarette drop or the light of a match. This is a minimum requirement for all contract furniture.

You may find similar items in your local stores, but they may not be suitable for contract use.  Always ask your retailer or online store whether the furniture you find is suitable for contract environments.
