There's been plenty of exciting coverage of Milan Design Week, which just took place in April. Every spring, top design talent from around the world head to Milan to showcase their work in home furnishings, lighting and furniture. The largest event of its kind, also referred to as Salone del Mobile, featured 2,407 exhibitors this year. Since I'm based in New York, I took to Instagram and a few different design blogs to find my favorite color stories of the week.
