2017 was a remarkable year for the brands represented by Schiatti. With an increasing consumer confidence in the premium furniture sector, the creativity and design excellence demonstrated by the Schiatti brands ensured that their respective products continue to be the must-haves amongst discerning customers. There were many notable new products displayed in 2017, most notably at the Salone del Mobile; as the close of 2017 approaches, we wanted to show some of the Schiatti favourites from the year – and provide some useful links to the brands’ catalogues as a reminder of the year’s highlights.
When the 55th Salone del Mobile interior design show closed its doors on
17 April, almost 375,000 visitors had attended what is now regarded as the
premier interior design show in the world. Evidence of the show’s increasing
international stature was that the number of attendees was up almost 4% on
the 2014 show – the last time the biennial kitchen and bathroom exhibitions
took place. The visitors to the show, which included the Italian Prime Minister,
Matteo Renzi, were treated to a truly stunning showcase of Italian creativity
and manufacturing expertise.
As predicted by many, the 54th Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan was a
fantastic success; this year’s show saw over 2,000 exhibitors in attendance,
with over 310,000 visitors keen to view the stunning products displayed.
We are the representative

Over this period, we have
been able to anticipate the
trends of a dynamic and
unique market, such as the
British one, and to foresee
the changes which today
are clear to everybody.
As host to the 53rd Salone Internazionale del Mobile, in April 2014, the city of
Milan was again the international furniture and design capital of the world.
With increasing global confidence, the expectations for the latest show were
certainly great, with around 300,000 visitors expected to attend, but this
figure was greatly exceeded. Some 350,000 visitors, from 160 countries,
attended and experienced the stunning creations from more than 2,400
exhibitors. And with over 1,400 exhibitors from Italy alone, the economic
importance of the show, a result of the innovative and high-quality design
manufacturing it represents, was highlighted by a visit from the Italian
Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi. It’s perhaps no surprise that this year’s show
has been described by visitors and exhibitors alike as being the best yet!
