This Paris design fair has all the answers

Maison & Objet has closed shop for another year. The ultimate destination for interior and design professionals to investigate trends for the coming year, it is a celebration of lifestyle, decor and craft. With the close of the September edition this year, we bring you standout moments to keep your home on point:

Calming tones
From the marble tones of an Italian city to the pastel hues of Miami’s South Beach, this year’s colour palette went global in its search for soothing notes. Light linen that creates an airy atmosphere and pearl grays for an elegant touch are the choices de rigueur of the season. A welcome move in anticipation of warm spring weather.

Ceramics and concrete
The global movement towards sustainability has given rise to another offshoot: the use of humble ingredients like concrete to create simple structures. Ceramics were all the rage with designer objects and tableware options from multiple brands across the globe. Go delicate with your choices, pure white or pieces sporting the slightest blush of a pastel hue will make sure you bring together two trends in one neat package!

Tribal and folk inspired pieces
The move to go local has seen designers incorporate tribal or folk inspired pieces, sourced directly from artists and makers. India has an exhaustive number of options to source handcrafted pieces locally. Don’t clutter your space or go maximalist, a singular piece that draws the eye is all one needs.
