Snap Shots from Maison & Objet, Paris.

Here are some snapshots from my recent trip to Maison & Objet, Paris. This beautiful city was home base for a few weeks this past month so I thought I’d also share some pics with you. I can't wait to get back – the Parisian way of life is contagious and oh so good for the soul. Want additional recommendations? Or, did something catch your eye? If so, be in touch! 

A few key trends I noticed while walking Maison & Objet: 

Texture was a hot topic

Primarily displayed within sea-worn woods, luxurious velvets, soft cashmere, linen, silks, tactile sheepskin, elegant marbles, woven leather and continual play when it comes to mixed materials.

Mix and match is in

Play with metallic yarns and details. Returning to mid-century modern, featuring rich materials and graphic patterns. 

Lighting continues to be a strong category

Created with all kinds of materials including glass, metals, ceramic, wood and natural fibers.

Prominent colors

Colors such as terracotta, navy, white, emerald green, deep emeralds, mustards, purples and black seem to be mainstays.  

Animal motifs are everywhere

Animal motifs were widely seen throughout the show – there was a lot of leopard print along with imagery of owls, fish and squirrels. Oh and lots of flamingos, monkeys and palm leaves!
