Our experiences at the Maison et Objet 2018
Visiting the Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris was a wonderful way to launch ourselves into 2018. With 8 halls full of products there was an incredible amount to see and distance to cover. The energising colour palette and luxurious textures kept us totally captivated. We noticed lots of warm, dusty red with burnt undertones and a continuation of last year’s enchanting green whether it was a beautiful velvet sofa or lush and leafy patterned plants.
Terrazzo appears to be making an intriguing return. We saw many variations including Quartz, Granite and Agate. It was often paired with pastel colours, natural woods, concrete or brushed metal giving it a more contemporary look and new identity compared to the Art Deco or 70’s style it would historically allude to.
Juxtaposed matt and gloss finishes were regularly featured, often in comforting cool tones such as soft pink, blues as well as metallics. This will be prevalent in home accessories particularly in ceramics and glass.
Soft curves featured in occasional chairs and rustic lighting. Organic, Artisan pendant fittings indicated shift from the high gloss tech world of the 21st century and a return to natural elements within our homes.
It was a fantastic experience and we are looking forward to incorporating these discoveries in our interiors this year.
