For the duration of Milan's Salone del Mobile, the boutique of Maison Martin Margiela in Via della Spiga presented "Interior Couture," a selection of pieces from the fashion house's Artisanal line, shown alongside the artworks that inspired their creation.

Tapestries and fabricsdesigned by Mariano Fortuny, Jean Lurçart, Alain Cornic and Verner Pantonwere sourced from private collections and shown in MMM's contemporary space. The same patterns were further repurposed in the spring/summer 2014 outerwear collection.
