Next week, Milan's famous fashion brands will find themselves temporarily nudged out of the spotlight by a different designer crowd, as the world's biggest names in furniture design descend en masse for the Salone del Mobile. Of course, this being the age of Twitter, Facebook and other instagratification tools (did we just coin a phrase?), reports have begun to filter back before the show's official opening on April 14. FA2L loves these Micro clothing hooks (that's "microphone" in French) by Big-Game for Moustache. They hold hangers, of course, but it seems even easier to drape coats and bags over the padded heads. We hope they'll come in lots of colors, too, so entry halls everywhere can suggest rainbow gatherings.
