Salone del Mobile. Milano 2019. The richness in textures and details, trends in the Spanish haute decor

March 7 / 2019

The sensory richness and the luxurious details, the colours, the textures and the finishes will be in fashion this year for high class interior design, a sector that will be widely represented at the trade fair of Salone del Mobile.Milano, from the 9th to the 14th of April, by many Spanish firms, including GUADARTE, AMBOAN, COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA, SOHER, TOMAS & SAEZ DISSENY and MARINER.

The Interior Trends Guide released by the Furnishing Trends Observatory, highlights that decoration, symbolism and the search for theatrical effects have gained importance again this season in the area of haute décor allowing the creation of spaces of personal expression. Spanish brands have used all these features to emphasize sophistication and exclusiveness introducing in their furniture materials rich in details, dark tones, bold colours, glamourous ornaments and eye-catching fabrics.

Noble materials, such as the natural stone and the marble, come in combination with velvets and ceramics to create spaces that are functional as they are decorative and that stand out for the intriguing, dramatic atmospheres they can evoke.


This richness in materials, shapes and colours, as well as the opulence of the decorative offer, are the hallmarks of the CENTURY collection that Spanish furniture manufacturer GUADARTE will put on display in Milan. The vibrant colours combine with more traditional materials, such as the wrought iron, and geometric designs to bring living and dining room spaces to life. Marbles, natural wood and high-gloss lacquers become the essential ingredients of the new unique environments that the Spanish designer and decorator José Gris has created for the brand.



The fusion of contemporary pieces and classic models, which is the result of the cultural heritage and evolution of the Seville-based Guadarte, is widely used to inspire and stimulate the senses and increase the bold look of spaces. Its catalogue includes furniture, wrought iron items, lighting, sofas, armchairs, paintings, mirrors, mosaics and many other furnishing objects that add visual interest and increase the eclectic allure of the Guadarte mise-en-scène at fairs.



This know-how and broad-mindedness have given as a result the creation of an integral furnishing offer being the CENTURY collection its maximum expression. The geometric lines of the mirrors, the animal prints, the brightly coloured upholstery have been combined with rustic wood and high gloss neutral and dark lacquers to create exclusive atmospheres for luxury homes and hotels.

Metal, as a symbol of distinction, is present in the golden furniture lacquers, handles, table bases, sofa legs and other decorative elements.

Colección Alexandra

Perfect craftsmanship and an exceptional, unique style are what distinguish the furnishing proposal of COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA, a company whose all-round concept encompasses luxury interior décor, furniture, textiles and lighting, all of them handmade in Spain. In Milan, COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA will showcase its GEORGE, THE ONE, CRICKET and ARTEDO collections, which have been created by the Spanish designers estudi{H}ac, JM Ferrer, María J. Guinot and the young Chinese talent Ben Wu.

As a result of the collaboration with Be Wu, THE ONE captures one of the leading trends in luxury interior design: drawing from different cultures and traditions to create outstanding iconic pieces. Ben Wu combines the elegance of the ancient Chinese culture and its calligraphy, with the sobriety of western technical architecture. The line is made up of different pieces that feature a solid ash wood structure: the CHU sideboard, the SOU dining table, the SHI dining chair and the YUAN armchair.



There is also room for the British culture among the new designs of COLECCIÓN ALEXANDRA for the Milan Salone. This is the case of the new CRICKET seat collection by the Valencia-based estudi{H}ac, inspired by the unique clothing of the cricket players. The batting pads have inspired the backrest upholstery which combines padded parts with plain material. The legs of this collection, which consists in a chair and stool, are available in turned wood or metal.

The ARTEDO cupboard designed by María J. Guinot and the GEORGE cocktail cabinet by estudi{H}ac are other pieces that will be presented to the international audience at the Salone.



The first is an eclectic piece with classic details, such as its base with a carved support and legs, the crest and the wooden handle with decorative carving and a straight-lined body finished with high gloss lacquers.

As for GEORGE, it opens up new horizons with its irregular geometric pattern on the front and its fusion of different materials, such as the ceramics, the leather and the wood.


The emotional impact of nature, which imbues the luxury furniture segment this year, plays a prominent role in the AMBOAN SELECTION line, which the Valencia-based furniture manufacturer AMBOAN will present to the thousands of visitors in Milan. Made of quality oak and walnut veneers, treated using rustic techniques and dyed in natural colours, the AMBOAN SELECTION stands out for the refinement of its finishes and decorative elements that make each piece unique.

The luxury decor brand MARINER will disembark in Milan with two new proposals: SAVOY and MALMAISON. With SAVOY, the artisans at Mariner give shape to exclusive materials, such as the American walnut wood, the Murano glass or the gold leaf inlaid in ebony pieces, to create furniture pieces which are real works of art.


SAVOY living room. MARINEROne of the biggest trends in 2019 consists in revisiting the past and adapting styles from the 20th century to the new era. In line with this trend, SAVOY draws inspiration from the Danish furniture of the 50s, reinterpreting its attention to detail to produce pieces that ooze with glamour, coolness and brightness.

MALMAISON shares this glance backwards to times gone by to create a renewed classic. In this case, it explores the Parisian style of the 18th century, with its neoclassic architecture and the imperial style as a standard.
