The new Boero Concept Store is opening in Milan



At Corso Garibaldi 34 in Milan, BOERO – the Italian company specialised in high quality paint products since 1831 – will be inaugurating a new concept store on March 12. It will be open from March to October during a period when the city is filled with events such as the Milan Furniture Fair and the 2015 World’s Fair. The BOERO store gives you a chance to try out textures, colours and pairings as well as a chance to discover the one hundred and fifty colours in the new Collezione Milano. It is a perfect opportunity to give any surface a new high-impact aesthetic finish.

BOERO recently supported the first edition of the Milan Design Film Festival by repainting the Antea theatre on Via Milazzo. It is returning to the Brera zone in Milan to present its new image. By choosing this district, the company intends to reinforce its connection with the world of creativity and design: this is also where the Academy of Fine Arts is located and over the years some of the best architects and interior decorators have opened their prestigious showrooms here. Today it is the Brera Design District that gives life to the fringe events surrounding the fairs.

BOERO has chosen the best possible location to open its first pilot store and to propose its two Home collections – the already popular Artdecor line and the new Collezione Milano designed for professionals and those who are looking for new inspirations for their home. There will also be interactive ‘games’ where you can pair various nuances to create unique and original effects as well as purchase small quantities to experiment before making your final choices.

During the entire period, a series of events will animate the location and there will be excellent collaborators who will transmit the spirit of Italy’s leading company in the sector: BOERO has currently undertaken over one hundred restoration projects in neighbourhoods all over Italy including places such as Cinque Terre, Camogli, Capri and Positano, (just to name a few). Thousands of families live in homes with BOERO colours.
