Paola Navone for Essent’ial | Merci Pop Up Store | Salone del Mobile 2014

When your favourite designer and your favourite store team up in Milano at the same time you are in town for milan designweek you might call yourself lucky. After meeting Paola Navone at a party in Paris some years ago, I seem to keep bumping into her whenever I am in Paris or Milan. It was a real pleasure to have a little hug and an hello with her again when visiting the pop up store this year. Main theme was a new collection of iconic black and white and some green and red also items for essent’ial.

This year my eye caught the new designed chair ‘Oblò’, tucked away under the stairs. Designed by Paola Navone for Triconfort |and previously showed at M&O| This range of garden furniture consists of a table with casted aluminium legs and a textured white or grey marble surface. The chair is available in different colours. 

And as I love to combine outside furniture with my interior I’d love to add the dining chair in silver to my home. You can never have to many chairs right… now only to find if it’s availble somewhere nearby.

Bad thing of these pop up stores is, you always want to bring something home. Being on a flight and not carrying the biggest suitcase I always stick with little gadgets and just only bought myself some bathroom accessories like the black marble enamel cup by Dyke and Dean and some Aesop products |can’t resist them| and being on a trip to Milan always is a good excuse 😉
