The Best of the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair, Part I
Greetings from Milano! Between all the Negronis and risottos, the late-night parties and the trips to Bar Basso, the Sight Unseen team has spent the past week treasure-hunting at the annual Salone del Mobile, and we’re excited to share with you our first batch of finds. This post includes our favorite photos from days 1 and 2 of our trip, but there are many, many more in our Facebook album — click here to check it out! And stay tuned for more!
