Maison&Objet 2013: Trends
Posted January 23, 2013

BRABBU blog is completely caught by Maison&Objet fever, we show the best fabrics, new exhibitors, lighting brands and now we are proud to talk about the trends revealed at number one international tradeshow for the home decoration sector.

Emerald Obsession

Marlene Dietrich said that emerald is the best colour for blondes, but we think that fits everyone and everywhere. We see in fashion, high jewelry and now in interior design, the colour dominates with vibrancy making and stimulating color palettes, fabrics and fittings. Many consoles and sideboards are now painted in this unique color, like the Diamond Emerald Sideboard from Boca do Lobo, one of the best statement pieces in Paris biggest tradeshow. Emerald is definitely the new black…

 

Natural Wood

Through essential materials, the minimalism present at Maison&Objet was showed to feature the clear home decoration trends. The natural wood is the choice of many designs to introduce simplicity in their pieces; the trend is all about serenity, with soft but understated lines and colours that reflect the tones of the natural world… The best example of this trend is the Earl lamp, one of many pieces by Llot Llov.

 

 

Think Bigger

When you talk about lighting brands at Maison&Objet you need to say floor lamps, they invade all corners of the important stands at tradeshow and became bigger than ever, all to improve any room and put a landmark in a challenging ambience. One of the best examples is the Diana Floor Lamp (the red one in the image) or the Janis Floor Lamp (the gold one) by Delightfull, a brand that brought good vibrations to all visitors and exhibitors.

 

“Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Who Is the Fairest of Them All?”

You don’t need to be the queen of Snow Flake fairy tale to have an incredible mirror in your home. One of the most viewed accessories in Maison&Objet was mirrors, they had a strong presence in any hall and many of them were the main piece of brand´s stand. They resurrected in fancy materials and glamorous colours, like the Rêve mirror, a master piece from Koket.
