Salone del Mobile 2013 Picks From Touch Design Founder Peter Scherrer

California Home+Design staffers couldn’t make it to Milan this year, so we enlisted the eyeballs of Touch design studio co-founder Peter Scherrer. As one half of a team that performs product and graphic design, branding and how-to workshops, he’s the perfect scout. Here are a few of his favorite finds from the event, going on through April 14.
