City Bound - Milan Day 3 Recap

Tyler Hardie

The juxtaposition of the old world design of Milan next to the modern design is a striking contrast that can only exist so perfectly in a city that was settled around 400 BC.

50 years and Beyond. B&B Italia celebrating their 50th birthday.

Leah and Brad receiving the tour from Angelo and Mattia from B&B Italia.

Paola Lenti uses the Chiostri dell’umanitaria, a 15th Century Franciscan Monastery as the home for her collection during the Salone Del Mobile. She and her team began restoration on the Monastery a few years ago and continue each year improving areas as a way of giving back. 

The Paola Lenti outdoor courtyard offered a great sanctuary from the hustle of the city that surrounds the Franciscan monastery.

Next up was a stroll over to Milan’s oldest neighborhood that was recently branded the 5Vie. It's an ancient crossing of narrow, winding streets and was home to Apparatus. A cold prosecco, and a warm welcome from Gabriel and Jeremy made their quaint showroom a perfect escape from the rain that was falling on the cobblestone streets outside. Their passion for beauty shows and we can't wait to have their work in our showroom. 

Right next door to Apparatus was BDDW. I've been a huge fan of Tyler Hays and his many creations ever since Leah introduced me to his furniture line. Every item he creates has a purpose and can also be considered a piece of art on it's own. Seeing his work in person was so inspiring.

After a long day of running thru the streets of Milan we ended up at the Gandia Blasco party at the beautiful Carlo E Camilla. It was great to finish up the day with a few of their fabulous mixology creations.
