MILANO – here I come!!! by Kelli

Tickets are bought, accommodations arranged and anticipation at it’s highest! I am headed to Milan early next week to join the annual festivities for the Salone Internazionale del Mobili (Milan International Furniture Fair)! I have attended the last two years but never has it been so exciting! Every year it gets bigger and better… this year is no exception! I am so pumped to go to Karim Rashid’s Party too (thanks David!)
As I wrote last week, La Murrina will be debuting my project “Coutures” at EUROLUCE (Pad 14, stand E29-F30 Fiera Rho, MM1 Fiera Rho) coutures1

Another great project that you shouldn’t dare miss is Mr. Hyde – designed by Isaac Pinero, Pablo Crespo Pita, and  Martin Franzen! mrhyde



Trendy contemporary designer Karim Rashid has teamed up with C&C Milano to create a new bedlinen collection, and alacarterstyle are offering you the rare opportunity to meet post-pop icon Karim at an exclusive party next Thursday during the Milan International Furniture Fair. How cool is that?? Invitation attached…



More lamp love in Milan by Kelli

I love this modular lamp from Studio Lagranja for Pallucco. It also will be debuting at Milan International Furniture Fair… Check it out!

My love for chairs by Kelli

When shopping for clothes my weakness is always shoes… but when shopping for furniture, it is almost always chairs! After all it was the fantastic chair designer Arne Jacobsen who was my inspiration to pursue furniture design in the first place. 🙂 You can expect me to write often about chairs I love… and today I want to share with you Meridiani.

Meridiani are producers of high quality designer furniture with showrooms in Milan, Paris, and Singapore (but they distribute worldwide). Visit the Meridiani stand at the Milan International Furniture fair – FIERA MILANO HALL 5 / STAND C 06

Milan Furniture Fair 2009 by Kelli

Every year in April, designers from all over the world venture to Milan Italy to attend one of the most important interior and furniture design shows, Salone di Mobile (Milan Furniture Fair). This year is the most important of all because La Murrina will debut my fantastic lamp design, Coutures!


The city transforms into a large showroom with events and shows all week. Apart from the fair there are smaller shows like Satellite (Young designers) and Euroluce (all about lighting and where you can find La Murrina) and of course showrooms around town. Some of my favs last year were Moooi and Tom Dixon at Superstudio Piu. Let me know if you are planning to attend and hopefully I will see you there!!!

invitation to party...

Any one lucky enough to be in Milan later this week should head off to the Madina Gallery to see the work of Sofia Cacciapaglia. I absolutely love her work, and am sure you will too!!
If pictures of fabulous dancing naked ladies aren’t your cup of tea, Madina are also showcasing the work of cool knitwear designer, Giulia Zoppas. Check out her collection at
Fashion and fine art… my kind of event!
The private view is on Thursday evening.. so don’t miss it!!


Kool Kelli by David

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Kelli yet, I can say that you are in for a real treat! Kelli only joined David Carter Interior Design about a month ago, but recruiting her is without doubt the best decision of my entire professional career… some of those who know me well might even say that it’s the only good decision I have made in the last sixteen years. Not only is she super bright (she has a degree from the University of Florida in Interior Design and a Masters from the fabulous sounding Scuola Politecnica Di Design in Milan), but she also has the biggest smile in London! And as she is far too modest to mention it, I would like to tell you that she has just heard that La Murrina in Italy are going to be putting one of her lighting designs into production. It is rather appropriately called ‘Coutures’, and can be seen at the Euroluce Show in April. If you would like your design advice served sunny side up, make sure you ask for Kelli, rather than me, when you call us…
