Recently our buying team flew to Paris in order to attend Maison & Objet, one of the largest home accessories and furnishing accessories exhibits in the world!
During our time there we met with both suppliers we currently work with and were introduced to some exciting new ones! Our goal in Paris was to make sure we came back with some beautiful new, exclusive accessories for the upcoming seasons and, as usual, Maison & Objet did not disappoint. The new accessories will start arriving to the showroom soon!
We saw stunning Chandeliers similar to Catellan Italia’s Apollo (which we already have in the showroom), with multiple pieces and shades hanging at different heights to create an incredible display. Open lamps, otherwise known as ‘filament lamps’ with antique bulbs clearly visible seem to be an ongoing trend. We noticed that lamp shades were often made of block velvet; we have already mentioned the use of block velvet as a trend on our social media pages, and this exhibit confirmed its continuing popularity. From curved sofas to footstools to the lamp shades… block velvet was heavily on display!
We also noticed a Victorian Colonial style and a Moroccan influence becoming apparent this season. Warm metals such as bronze, brass and gold are being used more and more for table tops, units and lamps. Other colours that featured strongly were rich, jewel colours such as jade, turquoise and violet, offset by a palette of warn neutrals.
We were certainly kept busy during our time there and we have been even busier since we got back, making room for this brand new stock. In fact, you can still take advantage of 25% off all our stock mirrors, lamps and accessories.
Below you will find a selection of photos from our time at Maison & Objet that highlight some of the trends and styles we mention above, and give you a taste of what we saw on our trip…
