Mourne Textiles and Notion

Bellissima! An exciting new exhibition, ‘Liminal – Irish Design at the Threshold’, launches today at Milan’s prestigous annual furniture fair, Salone del Mobile di Milan.

20 of Ireland’s finest designers are involved and some of them have even started collaborating with each other, making incredible hybrid creations, all of which will be launched at Milan Design Week.

Think pop-up queen Katie Sanderson teaming up with hip duo Designgoat, or ceramicist Andrew Ludick collaborating with artisans Ceadog?n Rugs. And… we can’t wait to see what Annie Atkins is doing with Seymours’ hand-cut biscuits from West Cork.

Scroll down for a sneak peek of what’s been launched and follow us on Instagram?@Image_Interiors, as we’ll be bringing you lots of?exclusive pics from the festival.
