Tomas Maier, creative director of Bottega Veneta, doesn't stray far from his trademark sophisticated luxe when designing furniture for the brand. Each new creation will meld seamlessly with every other furniture piece made by the label – past, present and future.

The Salone del Mobile, or what most of us know as the Milan Furniture Fair, is the biggest event for furniture designers every year. It’s a platform where furniture makers showcase their new collections, much like how fashion designers present their creations at Fashion Week every season.

With the latter group getting increasingly interested in the furnishings business, their presence at the Fair has also gotten noticeably stronger. Which are the fashion brands that stole the limelight with their furniture this year? We round up a selection of our favourites in the gallery above.
