Milan: Piet Boon

I have seen Piet Boon furniture in magazines before, but Milan was the first time I was able to experience a whole collection in person.

The Piet Boon Zone was part of the Superstudio Piu in the Zona Tortona, which is one of the most exciting areas of Milan to visit during the Salone del Mobile.

Most of his collections are in neutral, earthy tones, with a lot of dark wood and rough textured fabric. They have very classic modern lines, which keeps the furniture from feeling to heavy and overwhelming.

The craftsmanship and the finishing on the chairs and sectionals are really superb, and they are also incredibly comfortable to sit in!

I am also a big fan of Piet Boon.
I had never heard of them until I ran across their book Piet Boon 2.
It is an excellent book and they have done some amazing projects.
Thanks for the post. I plan to go to Milan next year.
