Trends from Maison et Objet, Paris

A visit to Paris for Maison & Objet is always an inspiring rendezvous – 48 hours packed with style, stimulation and the sexiest interior trends. It’s basically fashion week for furniture…

In a world of uncertainty – economically and socially – Paris has taught us it’s essential to create our own sense of identity in our homes. Despite the ever-looming Brexit, interior focus for 2019 will be on bespoke creations and unique craftmanship. The demand for tailor-made, niche, individual products is high. It’s time for consumers to break the rules, have run with interior buys and invest in key pieces that spark joy and are bright and bold!

The underlying message at Maison was to embrace individualism, using interiors as an escape from the reality and chaos of everyday life.

To share our highlights we’ve relaunched Scene (our in-house magazine) on Instagram in the shape of… Instascene

What the influencers say….

We caught up with two of our favourite Instagram interior superstars in Paris to reveal their Maison et Objet 2019 highlights.

 Lisa Dawson (blogger)

Award winning interior blogger Lisa Dawson can’t wait for a 70s revival to dominate the interior world.
Lisa tells Brown Dog: “I was so happy to see a huge change from dark interiors and greys that have been everywhere for the last few years. I’m so pleased neutrals have returned for 2019, earthy, natural colours are completely up my street! Really pleased to see curved furniture everywhere too. A lot of the designs I saw were hugely high end and luxe however, the trends were definitely ones you can replicate at home on a budget. Which is good to see. It’s not all about massively expensive materials, it felt more inspirational than aspirational!”

 Kate Watson-Smyth Mad About The House (blogger)

Esteemed journalist Kate Watson-Smyth, who writes award-winning interior blog Mad About The House, believes a colourful, 80s geometric style trend is heading our way.
Kate says: “All the earthy tones and colours I saw at Maison are already finding their way into my house, in the form of soft pinks, greens, chocolates and shades of cream. The trend of curves and maximalist were present in Paris and obviously both sticking around for another year. One of the highlights of my trip was Seletti, it’s nice to see designers not fitting in with any trends and just doing their own thing. I noticed a nod towards 80s style Memphis too and I think that trend will be back in force soon!”

Thank you for another amazing adventure Paris.
