‘MAISON&OBJET’ 2014 PARIS

In September the weather begins to cool down in France when Autumn is just around the corner, and Paris is getting back into the swing of business after the long Summer break.

It makes perfect timing for Maison&Objet, the major bi-annual French trade fair for interior designers, as the design industry turns over a new leaf or two of it's own . . .

More than 3,000 exhibitor stands of international brands and talent span over 130,000 square meters, showcasing their newest innovative products which they hope will become the latest global trend. We noticed a strong presence of wood, copper, colourful glass vessels, minimalist design and elegant shapes . . . just a few of our favourite things at AKD.

Here is our selection of 'coups de coeur . . .'
