Books in Corso Magenta & Sant'Ambrogio

Despite Taschen’s catalogue of beautiful books, it’s the interior of their Via Meravigli showroom that steals the show. Art books sit splendidly in steel cabinets and on a canary yellow, Corian-topped island, while underfoot Jonas Wood’s terrazzo floors depict super-sized flowers and foliage. Take Salvatore Licitra’s multicoloured staircase upstairs for a selection of art prints and the latest collectable editions.

While you're there, pick up a copy of Entryways of Milan for a sneak peek into some of the city's stunning lobbies.
