Dominating the design world

Home /

Already renowned as one of the world’s most influential events for the interiors industry, Maison & Objet is primed to offer visitors its most comprehensive, trend-led events to date. Held from 18th-22nd January at the Paris Nord Villpinte, products ranging from furniture to wallcoverings and all in between will be shown to its growing, discerning audience.
Attracting thousands of interior design professionals each year, Maison & Objet is a staple event for those working within the interiors industry, whether they are looking to find inspiration for the year ahead, or source new products on show.
Serving the mid- to higher-end of the market, visitors to Maison & Objet can expect to see international brand names, including Missoni Home, Armani Casa, Fendi Casa, Kenzo Maison, and Roberto Cavalli Home exhibiting their latest collections to the show’s powerful, purchasing audience.
Ralph Lauren Home, which is celebrating its 30th year, will use Maison & Objet to launch its entire collection of homewares for the first time. The brand, which does not participate in any other trade shows, selected Maison & Objet precisely for its dominance in the design world – Maison & Objet does not take cues from competitor events,  instead, it stands alone as a world-class event that is full of creativity as it is commercialism.
There will, of course, be a number of more accessible brands shown at the event, too – Maison & Objet is, perhaps, one of the most broadest, yet selective, exhibitions to take place in Europe. Key exhibitors include Case Furniture, Kelly Hoppen and Vincent Sheppard.
In addition, Maison & Objet will provide creative stimuli for its visitors in the form of its now! design à vivre hall, which focuses on the productive collaborations between up-and-coming designers and major suppliers. Here, visitors can seek out the more unusual, inventive ideas that have yet to be mass-marketed – offering retailers a competitive edge in the marketplace.
Moreover, Maison & Objet will host architecture and interior design forums, with notable personalities participating at this year’s event. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, designers of the 2012 Olympic torch, will be presented with Maison & Objet’s now! design à vivre 2013 designers of the year award, while Parisian designer Joseph Dirand will be awarded its scènes d'intérieur 2013 designer of the year for interior design.
In total, there will be nine halls full of inspirational interior products – compising ethnic chic, home textiles, tableware, craft, art trades, interior decoration, home accessories,     interior design, publishers and the aforementioned now! design à vivre – so the event is well-rounded to offer something for all those working within the interiors industry.
Entry tickets are €60, although special offers may be applicable. Readers should check the Maison & Objet website for further information.
