    Maison & Objet: Seen and Inspired at the Parisian Trade Show

    A few weeks ago, I took a quick trip to Paris for the biannual Maison & Objet trade show that specializes in home goods and furniture. I'm slightly obsessed with interior design and I'm always on the lookout for beautiful things that inspire me and are great for goop. We took tons of pictures and these were my favorite finds.

    Love,

    5am: Early wake-up as I take the 7am train from St. Pancras to Gare du Nord in Paris.

    Maison & Objet is geared toward buyers and editors and people in the design business and the next show is in September.

    10am: Arrive at Maison & Objet

    Here’s me about to enter the show, which was absolutely massive.

    Imagine each hall as being about the size of several football fields. Now, imagine walking through eight of those.

    A shot of just one of the mobbed halls.

    Once inside, there were so many beautiful products to see. From the highest quality copper pots to innovative light fixtures, bespoke furniture, Japanese knives, glassware from Spain, Italy and France, quirky décor accessories, gorgeous candles, etc.

    Sarah, our new buyer who just joined us from Barneys, spent the day with me on the lookout for awesome products for goop.

    Tabletop

    Astier de Villatte
    A row of candles by the rustic yet incredibly elegant French purveyor of tabletop goods and stationery.

    Sfera
    I loved the idea of having a row of these gorgeous canisters in the kitchen.

    Potomak
    Perfectly imperfect Italian hand-made porcelain by Potomak Studio.

    Tom Dixon
    Functional and elegant simplicity from Tom Dixon. If you’re ever in London you should check out his fantastic canal-side shop.

    Girls who rock:

    Heaven
    by Emeli Sandé

    Hurry Hurry
    by Jessie Baylin

    Born to Die
    by Lana del Rey

    Furniture, etc

    Ligne Roset
    The latest from a contemporary furniture stand-by.

    Sol & Luna
    I’d ride this leather-clad bike by Spanish designers Sol & Luna anywhere. They cover everything in leather, from bikes, to scooters to chairs, which you’ll find in restaurants and bars like the ones below at Casa Paloma in Barcelona.

    Hay
    A sleek wooden chair by this Danish furniture design company.

    SCP
    I took a short break on one of these great knit Donna Wilson pouffes.

    Quinze & Milan
    Belgian cult design label Quinze & Milan makes these very cool stools.

    Also loved these modern, round side tables by Muuto and Normann Copenhagen - both by Scandinavian companies.

    Bohemian Works
    We all loved this trompe l’oeil wooden floor at Bohemian Works. Made me seriously consider redecorating!

    Kids

    There was a ton of playful and cool kids design. A classic chair in mini by Morosof, XL boom's "Baby Ball" chairs, and this modern multi-use chair by Lümmel.

    Lighting

    Tons of beautiful lighting both contemporary and traditional.

    La Lampe Grase
    Loved every single lamp on the wall display from this French lighting design studio.

    Le Deun
    Electrical lighting design with low energy consumption. These fixtures are from their latest collection, but they also do bespoke work.

    4pm: Time to call it a day.
