Last week I enjoied a few days at Paris Maison et Objet + Paris Design Week 2017. While here you can find some new/interesting design products, today I take some minutes to share with you the new interior trends I noticed at Maison et Objet, some days after my travel as I need always few time to think back and digest what I saw.
Most brands proposed again similar trends and style we already saw at Milan Design Week 2017 (green, colour blocks, earthy + dark shades, black lines, pink) , or for example in the past edition of MO17 in January.
BUT there is something new and interesting I noticed in this Maison et Objet and I’ll bet will be a trend for next year and the Maison et Objet 2018, January and september. Let’s see if I’m wrong in a few months!
La scorsa settimana sono stata qualche giorno a Parigi per Maison et Objet + Paris Design Week 2017. Vi ho già mostrato qui qualche nuovo prodotto che ha attirato la mia attenzione, mentre oggi vorrei condividere con voi alcune nuove tendenze di interior che ho notato.
Va detto che molti brand hanno ripercorso tendenze che erano già state proposte in occasione della Milano Design Week 2017 (tanto verde, pareti colorate, tonalità terrose e scure, linee nere, rosa), oppure anche nella scorsa edizione di Maison et Objet di Gennaio.
MA qualcosa di nuovo secondo me c’è e credo lo rivedremo l’anno prossimo. Voi che ne pensate?
Date un’occhiata qui sotto!
MAISON ET OBJET TREND #1 | RED
Well maybe I’m just influenced by the amazing exhibit “Christian Dior Couturier du Rêve” I saw during my days in Paris, where red was one of the main protagonists, as for Christian Dior history.
But don’t think it’s a coincidence that Vitra chose this bright and bold red as the colour for its booth. Several brand are launching their products in a red version and in all the latest colour releases by paint brands there is a bright red shade. See for example Pantone Spring 2018, Behr, Dulux.
It is also a colour we haven’t recently seen in interiors so I ‘m quite sure it will come strongly back. Maybe next Pantone of the year will be a red..?
PS: Fun to notice, I just repainted my bold red wall in greige (and yes I’m so happy with it now!)
MAISON ET OBJET TREND #2 | STORAGE DECOR
You are nobody without a minimalist clothes rack at home.
At least, judging by how many clothes racks I saw at the fair. Every brand designed its own version, but really is there so much call for clothes racks in people homes (talking about real homes, not blogs or magazines ones)?
BTW, for sure the trend is to match functionality with aesthetics and to transform objects that once were just useful in beautiful ones.
Less is more, so let’s work on the less to make it beautiful.
MAISON ET OBJET TREND #3 | EASTERN TWIST
I must admit that this point is very influenced by my own taste but I’m noticing lots of shapes and lines with a Far East twist. After my recent travel in Singapore and Malesia, probably, I’m becoming more and more interest in these design influences. But it’s a fact, this Maison et Object September was full of interesting Asian design.
Very interesting also the in-fair exhibit about Asian rising talents.
MAISON ET OBJET TREND #4 | COMFORT TIME
Design is more and more oriented towards people comfort. The “Comfort Time” exhibit showcased this cross-trend in a total white space furnished with items designed to make our lives more comfortable. An interesting selection of furniture and objects ranging from workspace, to living room, to beds, to building materials: by observing present products, comfort is really one of the key trends at present.
Design is not made for surprising people anymore with special effects, but for making our lives better and more comfortable.
