Salone del Mobile 2022 trends: sofas and armchairs

Here is a roundup of sofas and armchairs presented at the Salone del Mobile.Milano 2022 from which trends for 2022 emerge. Not only materials and colors, but also sustainability, comfort and functionality.

Large sofas

Among the upholstered furniture for 2022, very generously proportioned sofas that are comfortable and enriched by tailored details stand out, such as the armchairs and sofas by Paul Smith + De Padova. Vibieffe, with Confident by Gianluigi Landoni, focuses on recycled and recyclable materials, for spacious and cozy sofas; Calia, on the other hand, proposes Fly, a comfortable and functional sofa that becomes a chaise longue with a simple gesture. Carlo Colombo designed Soho for Giorgetti, an essential sofa allowing for endless configurations. The Ambroeus sofa, by Antonio Citterio for Flexform, is a perfect synthesis of elegance and comfort; also the sofa from the collection with the evocative name Botero, by Sicis, has very generous shapes.

The Imperial sofa, by Carlo Colombo for Elie Saab Maison, focuses on tactile sensation and the softness of velvet; modular and contemporary, on the other hand, is Aster, by Ceppi. Rugiano presents the Fandango collection, characterized by soft lines wrapped in fabrics or leathers with soft folds that suggest enveloping comfort. The Bordone collection, designed by AngelettiRuzza for MyHome, features rotating elements – armchairs or poufs. In this way, the living area becomes even more functional. Cozy and offering great compositional flexibility is the René sofa, by Andrea Parisio for Meridiani, essential but very comfortable.

Sofas and armchairs 2.0: demountable and recyclable

Piero Lissoni has designed Pochette for B&B Italia, a simple and essential armchair with generous dimensions. From Natuzzi, a zero-impact pouf, Terra by Marcantonio, is a volume with beveled shapes, without structures or frames, in recycled PET, upholstered with a sustainable fabric made in collaboration with Dutch studio Byborre. Pebble Rubble, designed by Front Design for Moroso, mimics huge polished boulders thanks to fabrics made by Kvadrat Febrik with patterns derived directly from nature.

Upholstered furniture for hybrid spaces

Gordon Guillamier has designed Twirl for La Cividina, a sofa with tabletop perfect for collective spaces or for working, even in one’s own home. Freely modular is the Drop system by Zakaria Khalfaoui for Sitland. The three back, armrest and seat elements are easy to disassemble and reassemble to suit different spaces.

A revisited classic

The Eglantine armchair, from Jumbo Collection, reflects the brand’s heritage. This French classic-style armchair has soft and cozy shapes and features a hand-carved wood band with a gold leaf finish and fabric frill. For the most precious environments.
