Those more interested in Art Deco design than the latest suits in the Valentino window should head over to this cozily curated furniture and home-decor outpost in the heart of Brera that also functions as an art gallery. The interiors are a little zany, eccentric, and overstuffed, but this happens to be the city’s preeminent stop for Art Deco furniture.
For more than thirty years, Spotti has been selecting and showcasing the latest in interior design as perfect for a home office as for a kitchen or bathroom. Milan- based Studiopepe curates the windows, where you’ll find Italian evergreens such as Cappellini armchairs, B&B Italia sofas, Knoll tables, and Flos lighting.
Milan’s reigning design queen Rossana Orlandi is the hottest ticket in town during Salone del Mobile, but those in the city during the off-season can still enjoy her eponymous gallery and shop, where you’ll find a range of niche products by Nacho Carbonell and Maarten Baas handpicked by Orlandi. After a spin around the space, enjoy lunch next door at Orlandi’s restaurant, the Paola Navone―designed Marta.
