What went down: Maison et Objet 2017
Here’s a throwback to that one time we visited the Maison et Objet show in Paris!
Held twice a year, Maison et Objet is a design fair that functions as a showcase for furniture and new home accessories – particularly tableware. The January show is an especially important date on the industry calendar, as it attracts buyers from all over the globe and sets the tone for interior design trends for the year. This 2017, the show ran from January 20 to January 24 and featured new and exciting innovations.
Esteemed designers like Tomas Kral and Noe Duchaufour-Lawrence turned many heads this year for their elegant and refined creations that showed off the versatility of glass.
Another thing we noticed was the return of animal print designs because we found them in a lot of places. Few things were left untouched by the reemergence of this trend, from images of baboons adorning notebooks and picture frames, to Sahara-inspired embroidery and dinnerware boasting beautiful fish motifs. If the tastemakers at Maison et Objet are to be believed, it’s probably time to get on the animal print bandwagon before it leaves all of us in the wilderness.
