The Salone del Mobile in Milan, the results of which are the main theme of the new RBC Design, has shown that the days of glaring luxury are over. Even in the pavilions "Classic" there is less and less of it. Of course, the main propagandists of the “expensive and rich” trend remain true to themselves, but many who previously adhered to them are gradually switching to the present classics. Some even ask, "See how we are changing?" The answer is obvious - it is impossible not to notice.
In response to a question about the reason for such changes, a representative of one of the brands said: "Customers change, we adapt to them." And this is good news. Especially considering that the techniques for working with wood, metal, stone (mosaics, volume marquetry, engraving, etc.) are better for many of these brands than anyone else on the market.
It's a shame only one thing - before, glaring luxury was one of the main entertainments of the salon, but now there are less and less golden thrones. Although there are still enough of them - both for African monarchs and to go to the stand to laugh. Anna Minakova, Editor-in-Chief of RBC Design
