Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the worlds most prestigious furniture trade show, ended its six-day run Monday. More than 2,500 exhibitors previewed their latest home furnishings to 250,000 visitors. The biggest news: The gilded extravagances and luxurious looks that defined the market last year now play second fiddle to pieces exhibiting refined form and function. At MatteoGrassi, leather was cut into a fishnet pattern for a chair back reminiscent of Harry Bertoias classic 1950s wire seating for Knoll.
