It almost seemed as if a kind of competition had broken out between the exhibitors as to who actually had the nicest accessories. The small additions play an increasingly important role in modern interior design. Harald Klüh even finds that "accessories are like spices that work like flavour enhancers, which make the menu of furniture presentation into a taste experience".
If you looked closely, there were countless little gems to discover in the halls. Some of the exhibition stands were memorable just for their extraordinary accessories. "Some of the objects were arranged so lovingly and artistically that you hardly noticed the furniture any more," recalls Harald Klüh. "In fact, what we call 'supplementism' is no longer a trend, but has become a real boom in recent years." The equipment boom alone is worth the trip to Milan. Because accessories manufacturers are constantly reinventing themselves. Fantastic.
The influence of accessories on the appreciation of furniture and kitchens is immense. MOLTENI & C are true specialists when it comes to curating the right objects.
There are no limits to creativity when choosing accessories. Whatever seems appropriate to demonstrate the desired positioning of the furniture collection is permitted.
Attracting attention is important, but not everything. First and foremost, it is important to surround yourself with things that will be remembered. Every detail, no matter how small, adds to the bigger picture. The results of this could be admired in many places in Milan.
Accessories with irregular surfaces, with signs of use and patina create a clear contrast with the most severe geometrical furniture designs.
