A GLIMPSE OF MAISON&OBJET PARIS 2017: JANUARY EDITION

The January edition of MAISON&OBJET is always quieter than the highly anticipated Fall edition in September, however it has always been one of my favorite trade shows. Not only because it highlights the important current trends but it defines the direction and sets the tone of the design industry for the year ahead. 

Now that I am Sydney-based, sadly I am too far from France to be able to visit the M&O easily these days, however I still have some very handy local design eyes back home to give me an intimate insight into this year’s show. 

I have hand-picked my MAISON&OBJET January edition loves just for you! 

Playful and minimalist shapes dictate that new modernism is a trend that will evolve in 2017. French brand Petite Friture is the perfect example of this geometric love.
