Ok, so the story goes like this. The idea of going to Milan in order to participate at the Furniture Fair hit Michael in the week previous to the event, which made finding an affordable hotel or apartment impossible. Which is why, if you remember, he tried to get help from Freshome fans all throughout Facebook and Twitter. That was a good call, after which we had a looot of good solutions from you guys concerning affordable accommodation. We really didn’t expect such a feedback and we would like to thank each and everyone of you.

In the last minute, we decided to stay at Sam, a Freshome reader who we only knew from the comments he left us and a few ulterior Skype chats. He offered to accommodate us for free during Salone del Mobile.  Believe it or not, this turned out to be a great decision (for us, at least), as our stay couldn’t have been any comfier.

He said some of the items and arrangements in his apartment were inspired from our blog, so we decided to enlarge the circle of inspiration and share it further with you guys- at Sam’s permission, of course. Here are the pictures:

A few comments are in order. The metallic letters and numbers all have a certain significance. I particularly related to “42”, which is the “answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything” in the book called “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams. Now that is cool. In case you are wondering, “PAWA” stands for “power”. According to Sam, cooking is HARD, a statement which you will see being turned into an interior design component in the kitchen photos.

Sam, if you are reading this, thanks again for everything and feel free to comment in case there is anything we left out.

This is the kitchen …where Sam decided to place the word HARD, because it’s hard to cook for him. 🙂
