It only takes place once a year, but it is a real concentration of design and style, quality and excellence that attracts crowds of visitors from home and abroad. The Milanese iconic event celebrates this year its 56th edition that will take place at the usual venue in Fiera Milano Rho, from Tuesday 4th to Sunday 9th April. Spanish furniture and lighting companies will be out in force again waiting for you. Take note, you are invited!
Everyone who’s anyone on the international furniture design and manufacturing scene simply has to be there. In April, Milan turns into an international thriving capital of furnishing and design with the Salone del Mobile and the Fuorisalone as dynamizing elements. Now in its 56th edition, the exhibition opens its doors to style and trends through an exclusive array of brands and products – from furnishing to lighting to new workspace design concepts.
This year, well over 300,000 visitors from around 165 different countries are expected to descend on Milan to see what big names of the design industry have in store for us. But it’s not all about contemporary and avant-garde designs. Following the successful launch of the last edition of xLux, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile has refocused on Classic, offering an innovative format for classic furniture and furnishing accessories, in halls 2 and 4, and extending the xLux pavilion to hall 1. This new space is entirely dedicated to companies that have evolved towards an original stylistic expression which a perfect fusion of classic style and more contemporary design concepts.

With 53 furniture brands on display and approximately 6,400 sqm of exhibition stands, Spain will make up once again the largest non-Italian contingent at the Salone and the biennial exhibition Workplace 3.0. The strong presence of Spain in Milan is motivated by the positive performance of the Spanish furniture on almost all main international markets.
