Milan Furniture Fair

It’s that time of year again when we’re off to Milan for the 2009 Milan Furniture Fair (Salone Internazionale del Mobile, probably the largest and busiest furniture fair there is). We spend our days walking forever to meet with most of our manufacturers who introduce us to new and exciting products, existing classic pieces and wild new prototypes. We’ll be able to tell you all about it on our return next week. Until then Ciao!

Happy Easter!

At Tangram we're all looking forward to our Easter break and enjoying a long weekend. We hope the the sun will shine so we can roll our Easter eggs. If you're not keen on eating eggs then here are a couple that you can sit on!

The Tato stool by Baleri Italia and the iconic Egg chair by Fritz Hansen

If you would like further information on either of these items please contact us or drop into our showroom.

Apex Hotel, Waterloo Place

Tangram are delighted to have supplied furniture to the newly opened Apex Hotel on Waterloo Place in Edinburgh. The building dates from 1819 and was the first purpose-built large scale hotel in the city but it has been 120 years since it last traded as a hotel.

The designers at Ian Springford Architects selected the Doss sofa and Greco Cama sofabeds for the bedrooms, the Air sofa, Lineal chairs and Vela Dora table for the suites, the Stripey sideboard for the meeting rooms and the Twiggy floor light in the reception area.
If you’re considering a city break in Edinburgh then you should definitely take a look at the Apex Hotel - it is in a great location with fantastic views over the city and, obviously, it has some very comfortable and stylish furniture!
