Many vendors are aware that their clients have vast interior spaces that are often times accompanied by vast exterior spaces. And those clients wishing to enjoy the same comfort al fresco as they do by their fireplace, need look no further than some of this year’s vendors at Salone. No longer are a few deck chairs and cushions sufficient; it’s all about a sofa as comfortable as the one you would chose to read the paper on and tables and chairs that can host a feast on par with that of a holiday dinner. And of course, one must not forget the importance of lighting. Say goodbye the votive candles of yesteryear, Salone has proven that many vendors want you to live your indoor life, outside…with everything but the kitchen sink included.
