The Italian legendary gallery Nilufar is becoming a real pioneer when it comes down to furniture design. At least in Europe. After running her first successful gallery at Via della Spiga in Milan, Nina Yashar expanded to London with Squat and became famous. Time to get to know everything about her!
Taste for design
Nina Yashar is one of Milan’s top icons at the moment, a design hunter and great furniture dealer who knows how to stand out from the rest. That is exactly the point, “I have never had the kind of taste that speaks to everyone”, she says. Surrounded by people who are “linked to the aesthetic world or willing to change, to evolve, to keep on challenging the standards, because that’s how I live” makes her gallery and brand exceptional.
The secrets of success
Yashar is Iranian-Italian, born in Tehran and raised in Milan where the entire family worked in her dads oriental rug business. Funny fact to know: Nilufar means actually ‘lotus’ in Farsi. The face behind Nilufar always chooses pieces based on her instinct and intuition. She knows where to focus on: originality, creativity and functionality, which is a fundamental key to successful design.
