Maison & Objet, Paris
We popped along to Maison&Objet Paris on Monday for a little wander around to see the latest offerings from the international interior design and lifestyle community. Split into three major sections including two new spaces dedicated to textiles, MAISON is all about interior decoration, OBJET is concept and retail, and INFLUENCES covers luxury, design and architecture.
It’s a huge expo (Nike Flyknits are the only way to go) and we saw everything from the good to the bad to the downright ugly. Amid the excellent lighting and furniture displays, we found wild taxidermy, staggeringly gaudy Christmas decorations, a surprising number of cacti in various forms, and an undeniable trend for large insect lamps. We also discovered the source of all the unicorn inflatables that were all over Instagram last summer.
