Milan and ProposteMay 17, 2008

Villa Erba

It's good to be heading home after attending the Milan Furniture Fair and Proposte held at the amazing Villa Erba in Como. Every year we look forward to the Proposte textile fair; a much more intimate affair than the vast Heimtex, with the quality exhibitors being a good fit for us at Unique. It's always interesting to gauge future trends from these shows. This year we saw an emphasis on bespoke design, natural materials and hand-craftsmanship. We were very pleased to see a lot of linen - a signature fibre for us.

Logan Blues

Out of interest I did a Search for 'Linen' on our site and we have 89 designs with a composition of 100% linen and over 400 designs of linen blends. Included in this count is the new release LOGAN; a beautiful plain woven 100% linen in a casual, 'washed' colour palette which includes some gorgeous blues - a colour for the upcoming seasons. This fabric is woven by a mill which belongs to the Masters of Linen group ensuring outstanding quality.

Another new plain we've released is Hanae, which has a subtle metallic look in 9 colourways. Metallic fibres and colours were also big news at Proposte. Hanae is our take on this trend - with a hint of metal it's not too over the top and very easy to live with.

Trelise

Finally I'd like to mention TRELISE, a fun, fresh print range featuring a vibrant floral and multi-hued stripe. The colours range from bright pinks, strong greens to more mellow blues and naturals. We are also pleased with the price-point of this collection. I hope you like it.
