Maison & Objet is to interior enthusiasts what Comic Con is to geeks. Twice a year, in Paris, the who’s who of interior design flock to this event to see and be seen and to find out what’s popular (and what’s not) in home design. This year’s show did not disappoint, with plenty of new product launches and exciting trends to drool over. Here are just a few of our favorite things from Maison & Objet 2022.
Between the digital and the physical
This September issue of Maison & Objet explored the theme of “Meta sensible,” a concept that reconciles our need for a grounded, material world with our desire to escape into digital fantasy. This was evident in many of the products on display, which mixed high-tech features with traditional craftsmanship and materials.
There were seven packed halls to explore at this year’s show, each more impressive than the last.
- Clever gift – offered a unique take on the gifting experience with practical and aesthetically pleasing products.
- Fashion accessories – offered a range of decorative objects, including bags, jewelry, clothing and more.
- Cook and share – offered everything in the kitchen, from cutlery and cookware to accessories and food gifts.
- Home accessories – was a veritable paradise for homemakers and interior designers, where you could find that finishing touch that makes a house a home (including Displatesnatural).
- Home Linens, Fragrances, Crafts – showcases rare pieces created by artisans.
- Today, forever – featured a variety of contemporary lifestyle products.
- Signature – brought together the industry’s most creative brands and designers.
Objet De Curiosité was an exhibition room filled with natural wonders, vintage treasures and unique objets d’art. Shell and coral decor are on display, as well as 19th century Japanese porcelain and other antique curiosities.
In the world of interior design, color is everything. And this year’s home decor items didn’t disappoint on that front, with plenty of bold and bright hues to feast our eyes on. From electric blues to punchy oranges, we couldn’t get enough of all the vibrant colors on display!
Once a staple of ’80s discos and ’90s basements, neon lights are making a serious comeback in the world of home decor. At this year’s Maison & Objet, we saw plenty of examples of how to incorporate this eye-catching trend into your space, from colorful neon signs to more subtle lamps and sculptures.
The ultimate symbol of French luxury, glassware was in full force at this year’s show. We saw everything from elegant wine glasses to quirky perfume bottles, and we fell in love with them all!
Floral arrangements and iridescent LED lights – this September’s Maison & Objet certainly had no shortage of futuristic vibes. We loved seeing all the innovative ways designers are pushing the boundaries of home design!
Abstract shapes have dominated interior design and bring a unique and handcrafted quality that should be celebrated. The curved, the sculptural and the geometric all caught our eye at this year’s show.
What was the saying? Don’t judge a book by its cover? Well, we say forget it! This year’s fair featured some of the most beautiful book cover designs we’ve ever seen. From colorful patterns to minimalist designs, there was something for everyone.
There is something special about a piece of design that is made by hand. It’s the perfect way to give your home a personal touch and show your guests that you have an eye for detail. We saw many examples of this at Maison & Objet, from handwoven rugs to handmade ceramics.
Conceptual designs are always a highlight of Maison & Objet, and this year was no exception. We’ve seen many incredible examples of how to incorporate the latest trends into your home, from bright and colorful kitchens to sleek and modern living rooms.
