May we present to you our favourite pieces from one of the most important events in the design calendar, Maison & Objet, Paris. The event is famed worldwide for annually showcasing the best design talent from France and far beyond.
Warm metals like copper and brass, with their bold shades and luxurious feel are without a doubt here to stay. Their hues adorned furniture accross the show from chairs to tables as well as wall panels, tiles and wall surfaces.
We personally loved the smaller home touches on show, that designers such as Tom Dixon got just right. His new copper stationary set was launched at the show alongside other pure copper accessories. Perfect for adding warm metallic touches to the home office, which can be quite a bland, neglected space.
We were also very excited about the launch of Matali-Crasset’s concrete and brass faceted objects, which are both beautiful and versatile throughout the home.
Black and White is an enduring theme at Maison & Objet, a colour combination that never goes out of style but only shifts, develops and endures as interior design evolves over time.
We loved the boldness of London based CTO Lighting’s new Rayon range designed by Stephane Parmentier and launched at the show. The simplicity of the three prongs is the defining feature across the range, which adapts for different spaces with ceiling, wall and table lamps available. Each lamp is made from bronze with satin brass and glass, dimmable LED lights.
‘A’a Hawaii Lighting were new to the show this year, but impressed us with these exceptional blown-glass lamps. Available in a multitude of colours, we loved the statement and simplicity of their pure white creations.
The La Chaise 510 Originale chair deserves a mention for being an iconic design classic. The company of the same name, has been designing chairs for French schools since 1947 and its designs have endured to the present day for their functional stature. We love both the white and black styles, why not mix it up and have both?
Alix D Reynis is a French designer specialising in home accessories. The elegance of her handmade porcelain caught our eye, pure white and perfectly formed with acutely observed detail and character. We think they would make a perfect adornment to a china basin.
If you coudn’t make it this year, we hope you are now more inclinded to make the trip in 2016! We hope to see you there.
