The Milan Furniture Fair…Mama Mia!
“What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago.” –Erica Jong
Having just returned from the Milan Furniture Fair, I thought you might enjoy how much trouble I found for myself….
While in a cafe in Milan I became impatient waiting for my check. I flagged my waiter and asked for the check–again. I have been pondering his response for several days…
“Nota so fasta Americano–this is Italy. You sita and relaxa, enjoy being alive-a.” So I did as told and must say, I should do this more often…
The Milan Furniture Fair was ridiculously huge. Over 2.5 million square feet of furniture displays containing over 3 billion dollars of furniture. Mamma Mia!
Many more posts and photos to follow, but not this week. Between jet lag, my daughter’s wedding on Saturday and a new pup, Shelby dog, I just can’t find the time to work.
I have hundreds of images but I am saving the best for last. The image below is either a lamp or an elephant with a bad cold–you decide. At least I know where you can purchase it…I think it would look great next to an entertainment center STILL owned by Fred West.
