Twice a year, the design elite converge on Paris see what the world’s finest designers have to offer our world of interiors. This January represented the 20th anniversary of Maison & Objet and in celebration, everyone brought their best of all things pertaining to interiors.
In fact, this show was so robust, Steve and Jill required a full two days just to see everything once at Maison & Objet. It is a lot to take in!
They were honored guests of Grange Furniture, whose stand proved to be one of the most elegant in all the show. And, although there is so much about Maison & Objet to share, we decided to make it easy for those of you who may not have been able to attend this season’s show and summarize the top three emerging trends we witnessed:
Flights of Fancy
Butterflies were everywhere at Maison & Objet, along with a few tropical birds thrown in for good measure. Beginning with the beautiful new Exceptions de Grange piece with the butterfly front, as seen above.
DEYROLLE, a delightful find in the 6th in Paris, on rue de Bac, is a visual feast of taxidermy and entomology. You can select your own butterflies and create your own boxes that they will build on site for you.
Exhibitor Koket, purveyors of the glam lifestyle, showed off an amazing gold and fuchsia butterfly wallpaper, and also had pieces featured in the new Fifty Shades of Grey motion picture.
Famous French glass house, Lalique, launched a line of beautiful butterflies by artist Damien Hirst; they were stunning!
And just to prove that we are on trend here in Atlanta, we were so pleased to read the inaugural issue of Atlanta Magazine’s HOME and see their spread on the butterfly trend..
Classic Blue and White
A perennial favorite for designers, blue and white is coming back with a vengeance. Dust off those oriental vases and get ready to introduce them back into your space!
One exhibitor, Moissonnier, also with a beautiful storefront in the 6th in Paris, creates beautiful bespoke furniture that really embraced this trend.
This hand painted console was an absolute inspiration!
Even creative pottery in blue and white was featured in abundance.
Traditional vessels stacked deep…
Ralph Lauren Home brought back the blue and white pottery to their exhibition as well.
Pretty Pastels Prevail
The third trend that was very prominent was all about pastels, especially pinks.
From Modern furniture to key accessories, it was everywhere!
Even Le Creuset launched pink and blue product lines.
This all pink display inside the high gloss black armoire really drove the pastel point home for us.
Grange featured this beautiful blush tone as a sweet little accent inside two of their Exceptions pieces.
As you can tell, we could go on forever about all the inspirational pieces we saw, but we hope you enjoyed these selected trends from Maison & Objet Paris 2015.
We will do one final installment about our amazing trip to Lyon to experience the incredible Grange Factory for ourselves and share what makes Grange so special; hint – we can’t wait for you to see their artisans at work! We will also be sharing a full album of all the images captured on this recent trip.
Thank you for reliving this magical time with us, we hope you’re as inspired as we are by these top trends from Maison & Objet 2015!
