Maison & Objet or "I love Paris!"

I love Paris in the Springtime....

but the design world loves Paris in January. In fact this year Paris in January on the 20th - 24th was the place to be for Maison & Object.

For those who do not live and breathe design, this is where you find the newest and best of Design, home-fashion, objects, tableware…anything and everything for the home. This is where the trends start and this year everywhere you looked were distressed old wood, bright colors, faded patchwork rugs, white lacquer, brass and chrome, tufting, nail heads, taxidermy, skins and fur, horn, lucite and lots of leather! This year the displays were incredible. There was plenty of eye candy for everyone to indulge in, so much that I can not begin to show you all the photos that are floating around the Internet! But I will try to give you an idea of what is coming our way!

Did I say the displays were a bit unusual and over the top?

Something for everyone!
Keep your eye out and see how these are interpreted when they hit
the states in the future!
