Maison & Objet has been bringing new trends in design since 2013, it is held in Paris twice a year. It presents an offer of more than 3,000 brands from manufacturers around the whole world. Here you will find decorations, designer items, furniture, accessories, textiles, scents, children´s furnishings, kitchens and dishes. If you are looking for something unique for your interior, Maison & Object is the solution for you.
Upon entering into this oasis of luxury I was immediately absorbed by its pleasant atmosphere and the scent of candles and home perfumes. Here you will find clean lines of furniture and accessories accentuated by luxury, but also insanely shiny disco balls or a black panther. What took my breath away?
Louis Drimmer is a lighting manufacturer, established in 1945, which gave rise to sewn lampshades and hand-painted ceramic stands. In addition to lights which allegedly have a soul they also represent very extravagant home accessories. Colourful statues of animals, shiny skulls, a crocodile on the wall, a wall-mounted light fixture in the shape of an apple, a sci-fi teddy bear, a statue in the shape of a bonbon - this is only a fraction of what you can buy for your home. I felt like Alice in Wonderland!
The Dutch brand of Cobra ART was founded in 1983 and is focused on the B2B market. It is currently a top international dealer of modern art, paintings and photography. The most interesting pieces are paintings with famous personalities such as Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye or David Bowie. Modern art is adorned by logos of luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel or Ferrari. Great attention is attracted by statues of English bulldogs and a pig with the logo of Louis Vuitton and photographs of famous personalities.
I am interested in the Werner VOSS brand, which has been in the market since 1986, focusing primarily on the production of decorations and gifts. The collection of SS 2019 is full of animal and natural elements, African motives, the dominant colour is gold.
The Fancy Home Collection brand was founded in 1950 and manufactures furniture and home accessories of unique design. Also its current collection of SS19 was inspired by Africa. A pleasant atmosphere is created by warm colour tones, I was fascinated by a light in the shape of a palm tree, accessories in the shape of cacti, a rhino mounted on the wall, parrots, pineapples...
Pictures in the gallery below the article will tell you more, but believe me that seeing these designs face-to-face will make you speechless!
