Paris is always thought of as the hub of fashion, but the City of Light is also angling to be the centre of design. In September, it hosts Maison et Objet, a trade show dedicated to all things decor. And in recent years, the show has added almost 300 exhibits in the city as part of Paris Design Week. As always, Paris is setting the design trends, and here is what you’re going to be seeing for the fall season and through 2020.
Wood Crafted Furniture Design
Since the beginning of times, wood has been an intricate part of the world of furniture design. This year, Paris Design Week brings this design trend back into the spotlight! The unique Pixel Walnut Cabinet by design brand Boca do Lobo features 1088 wooden triangles in a diversity of wood and finishes: walnut root veneer, gold leaf, and black lacquer.
Earth Tones Are The Trend For Fall Season
Of course, the fall/autumn season is synonymous with earthy tones that perfectly blend with the weather outside. Covet House, brought that same thought when creating the colour palette for its booth at the September edition of Maison et Object.
All In One
With small spaces on the rise, every inch needs to have a purpose. Leel World showed these fabulous multifunctional items that can be configured to meet your needs. And even better, you can hang them on your wall to save on floor space.
From Greek statues to masks, the human face was everywhere at Maison et Objet. However, the key to this design trend is to only show three quarters or half like these fabulous mirrors by Lucie Kaas!
Cherry On Top
Fruit patterns are coming back, but the most prominently featured at Paris Design Week was cherries. Liven up your decor with this Dior Maison cake stand featuring the red fruit.
When Italians collaborate, of course, they turn to their country for inspiration, and what better place to look than the Eternal City. Studio AMeBE decided to reimagine San Pietro’s dome as a light for Seletti, giving a nod to their art and culture. Are you on board with this design trend?
The pattern Jackson Pollock made famously is in full swing again. Born enamelware is featuring it in a variety of colours and calling the collection “Island Breeze.”
“Come inside, it’s fun inside!” With its copyright up this year, our favourite mouse is back and was all over Paris Design Week. However, the showstopper was India Mahdavi‘s raffia creation.
In a more autumnal feel, many companies decided to focus on hunting game as their design trend. Ranging from deer to fowl, these plates by Gien are definitely not for the squeamish!
Neon Is Your Go-To Statement
Maison et Objet’s Designer of The Year, Laura Gonzalez wants you to make a statement with your interior design. The artist suggests that you use a pop of neon in your home decor, perhaps with a piece from her furniture collection.
