Discover the brand new interior trends at Maison et Objet with our highlights from the January 2020 show. Just copy one of these recent home trends and you’ll effortlessy be one step ahead of the interior fashion pack.
Maison & Objet, the show for the interiors and design market, returned to the historic location of Villepinte Paris for the 25th year from 17-21 Jan. 2020.
The four day event showcased furniture, interior and lighting designers alongside fabric and textiles companies, from established names to up-and-coming makers. Hosting over 2500 exhibitors, the show marks the opening of the Interior Design Fairs. Maison and Objet brings trade buyers and manufacturers together to form a community; which is now the very essence of this celebrated event.
The show was bursting with bold hues and even brighter patterns this January, giving a welcome change to the Scandi-minimalism trend that’s so familiar to us.
1. Natural materials – Back to basics
Seek the inspiration in nature: items in solid wood, cane, organic cotton and marble are here to stay, also if they can be quite expensive to purchase. But, when you have only a limited amount of money to spend and you are pulled between quantity and quality, choose quality every time. Furnish for the future. Look ahead, with the assurance that five years hence, your rooms will be standing up well.
2. Earthy colours
Earthy and warms browns are the colors of the moment: combine different shades of terracotta, ochre, mauve and update the effect with sophisticated design. Terracotta has become a design statement this season, present in the texture, fabrics, furniture, floors or walls; scheme rich ochre with terracotta and rust and use contrasting colors sparingly to obtain a warm and elegant effect.
Art Deco shifting toward metaphysical shapes
Opulent décor gets a modern design while staying true to luxurious materials and finishes. Brass remains a perennial favorite, at least for the foreseeable future; you can expect new mixes of materials and clean forms in 2020, with a renewed interest in ancient Rome and Greek art, sculpture and architecture.
Elements of Japanese design have recently been making their way back in to the consciousness of modern interiors. Embrace the beauty of imperfection with the delicate palette and traditional philosophy of Japanese design. Seek out unique handmade accessories to elevate the ambience. Serene greens, monochrome patterns, tactile weave and rich textures are all combined to deliver an inviting color palette for a considered living space.
