Contract asked three designers who went to the Milan Furniture Fair on a trip sponsored by InterfaceFLOR to pick their favorite products at the show. Mark Harbick, AIA, IIDA, a Design Principal at Mancini•Duffy, made some fabulous choices – from the "synthesis of simplicity and technology" that is Jean Nouvel's "Table au Km," to the "Kimono" by Ca'Onorai, a "stylish touchdown station 'in a box.'"

The Jean Nouvel "Table au Km" – fit that into your 300-sf studio apartment.
