Salone del Mobile Milano – beautiful modern rugs by SITAP

If you ever ask me what is the most satisfying part of a design journalist work I would say it is meeting a designer in person and hearing the story behind each and every single product told with the incomparable passion only their creator can have. During Salone del Mobile Milano we had a great pleasure to meet Barbara Trombatore, the creative mind behind SITAP – Italian company specialised in fine carpets.

The first look around the stand already filled with bold colours, unique patterns, and luxurious materials gives a hint that all the products displayed there are special and one of a kind. Barbara gave us a special tour sharing her favourite designs.
