Maison et Objet- a behemoth of a trade fair in Paris every year, covering 9 halls and the world of interiors, along with a little bit of lifestyle and fashion. It’s amazing, and inspiring and a little bit overwhelming all at once.
In the same way that London Fashion Week show cases the best of UK fashion and the forthcoming trends, Maison et Objet is an opportunity for the world of interiors to come together to celebrate the best of design and to showcase new products.
There were almost 3,000 of the best design houses in the world, from the eternally playful, glamorous and utterly covetable Jonathan Adler, to the ingenious bird hooks and storage from Ligne Roset (not to mention THE comfiest sofa ever, Ploum). Between the established designers and new artists and brands, it was a whirlwind of inspiration and gorgeousness.
I feel so excited by the range of styles and finishes, and feel so excited that 2017 will bring projects where I can use these beautiful items to bring homes to life.
Here’s a few of my favourite photos from the show, from the amazing Jonathan Adler and Ligne Roset to lesser known, but nonetheless inspiring brands such as Pomax and artist Alice Riehl.
Alice Riehl’s bespoke porcelain wall art is made up of handmade leaves and flowers which are then secured to the wall. Their ethereal beauty belies their strength, which is formed in the kiln, a juxtaposition I love.
If there’s anything you love and can’t live without, give me a shout and we can schedule a consultation.
