A list for interior lovers: between the historic centre, the quadrilateral and the northernmost area of the city, here are the new showrooms that will be inaugurated during the Design Week

There are those who move, to expand their spaces, those who are present at the FuoriSalone 2023 to then reopen the doors later, those who occupy the windows that belonged to other brands in the past.

Visiting the new showrooms is always an exciting experience for design lovers.

Because they will find the latest news, the leading products that illustrate the latest furnishing trends; but also because the choice of location and the way in which a showroom is set up are often part of a more important story, which says a lot about a brand's positioning and strategy.

For our readers, we have compiled a list of new showroom openings: in alphabetical order.
