Sifting back through my photos from Milan Furniture Fair I have realised that I must have got distracted as I have so many more images I wanted to post from there. Here are some from the Hotel_RCA exhibition featuring graduates work - I loved the industrial feel of the building against the products.....a disused factory of concrete greys, stone and pipes, paint splatters and drain covers, coloured rubber and raw wood.

I saw this woman printing chocolate on tiles during Milan Design Week back in April. It's still one of those things I keep remembering, so thought I'd share the photos (thought I already had, but perhaps not?!). The entire thing was very theatrical in that she never said a word - just printed chocolate onto tiles, offered them to passers-by, smiled, and mimed at them to lick it off.

The beautiful table settings at the Vintage Brides' wedding reception - embroidered tablecloths and cushions, vintage plates and floral patterns. I had a lovely surprise when I went to my seat to find the cushion (image 6) made from one of the embroidered place mats I sourced for her wedding in Paris (see post here) - a very unique and personal touch.

Another group of photos from Boulevard Leopold in Antwerp....my last post on this B&B but I could keep adding more and more stories from this amazing place. A collection of curiosities brought back from travels and sourced from flea markets.
