Earlier this month we had the pleasure of experiencing one of our favourite events, Maison & Objet. Lead Creative, Karl Openshaw has selected some favourite pieces and notable trends.
There is nothing new in colour blocking being huge across the fashion industry however, we are starting to see this filter into interior design too. This trend was one of many that caught our eye at the show, with a huge presence on the Elisabeth Leriche installation. She had created a space that was a powerhouse of colour and in her inspiring words, “Colour power calls for shock therapy to combat the ambient doom”. A rich, thoughtful palette energises and sets the tone of interiors just as it provokes our senses and emotions. The colour blocking we witnessed displayed a harmonious mix of 70s inspired items creating a reinvented retro feel.
Curves are the new corners
Taking reminiscent forms from the Art Deco and 70s era’s we saw an influx of undulating curves on our trip. With their inviting softness and added sophistication, we felt the sidelining of sharp angles and strong lines with a return of all things curved.
We were pleased to be met with a strong sustainable presence at Maison & Object, with the rise in concern for our environment. It was wonderful to experience positive changes for the wellbeing of the planet. We spotted numerous ingenious ways of using waste products to create beautiful textile pieces such as ocean plastics being turned into tufted cushions. Alongside this, we observed an increase in artisan-inspired work which we’re already working into many of our projects for 2023. The shift to a more sustainable future within interior design is one we are passionate about, we love making small changes each day to achieve our sustainability goals and values.
