Liquid Imagination

This week we have been getting very excited about the new Liquid Imagination paint range by Valtti. They have a beautiful range of colours and an amazing website - you must try the 'Paint A Room' function, it is very clever and had us all trying out the different colours.

Hotel Missoni

It's been a busy few days for Matthew, two huge lorries arrived at Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh with boxes and boxes of B&B Italia furniture which he and his team had to unload in preparation for the opening of the new hotel. We were delivering Fat-sofas and armchairs to name but a few products.
The following day another lorry arrived from Cappellini & Carl Hansen with more chairs and armchairs. The hotel is going to be marvellous when completed. Definitely worth a visit, if only to see the furniture we've supplied.

MILAN 2009

We're back and over the course of 2 days the Tangram team spent 28 hours walking, visited and had meetings with 34 different manufacturers and viewed hundreds of new products. Julian did manage to take the weight off his feet for five minutes and here's the proof.

Milan was as bustling and full of people as ever which created a great atmosphere. However restaurant tables were in short supply! There were some notable highlights and having thought long and hard we have come up with a list of our ‘top five’ - read on to find out more!

Top Five Products
Archibald Chair from Poltrona Frau - extreme comfort and beautiful detailing.
Eclipse Tables from Stua - simple, practical and starting at £70!
Jean Sofa System from B&B Italia - Elegant clean lines with coloured lacquered frames and amazingly comfortable. Luxurious armchair to match. Hans Table from B&B Italia - the best mechanism on an extending table we have ever seen along with unusual frame colour and detailing.
MassimoSistema Sofa System by Poltrona Frau - a very simple, well proportioned piece with the high level of comfort you would expect with a price tag considerably lower. Approx. £ 4995 for a 3 seat sofa in leather.
