Maison et Objet 2015 report

It was a 48-hour whirlwind trip to Paris last week for the first big trade show of the year – Maison et Objet. With eight halls packed to the brim with brands and designers showing their latest collections and new product launches, it’s somewhat of challenge to pack it all in. However, with some pre-planning and a floorplan with my notes to keep me on track, I enter the halls like a woman on a mission! It was good to get up close to some of the existing collections that I had yet to see in the flesh, discover new pieces that début at the show and see what trends are emerging. Aside to the products, some of the exhibition stands are real show-stoppers – check out Kvadrat and Seletti in photos below. At the end of two long but inspiring days (and a whopping 700 photos later!), I was most happy to head back to the elegant surroundings of Sofitel Arc de Triomphe where a much needed post-show and pre-dinner apéritif awaited. Here’s just some of what caught my eye:

    This looks like an amazing trade show. I started a lighting company recently, http://www.HangoutLighting.com, I wish I could have made it to this. Hopefully I can make the next one.
