In January, we joined thousands of other interior design professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe at Maison et Objet, a biannual design fair that takes place in the chic capital of the world: Paris. The fair showcases all that is brand new in the home furniture, accessories, and tableware world and sets the tone for the season’s interior design trends.
Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite trends from the show:
Blush pink: The Pantone Color of 2016 officially known as Rose Quartz, is still taking center stage. Seen in upholstery fabrics, wall coverings, accessories, and even paint color, this feminine, soft, and yet luscious tone; gives us all sorts of warm and fuzzy feelings.
Flora and fauna: Going beyond the animal print, which has been a ubiquitous trend for many years, animals invade the interior design world in full force in other fun and unexpected shapes and forms: from playful taxidermy to bunny-shaped lamps and illustrations on tableware, fabrics, and wallcovering, there's an abundance of options for those wanting to incorporate fauna in their interiors. (We prefer our taxidermy of the faux variety....but real was seen as well!)
Fringe binge: A constant on SS16 fashion runways from Paris to New York, the trend has officially cast its spell on interior designers as well. Fringes are cleverly employed to upholstery pieces, chairs, and even mirrors in ways we've never seen before to suit the current preference.
We hope you enjoyed some of our favorite interior design trends. Even though we're not the "trend" type - these looks have staying power and will surely be seen in our upcoming projects.
We'll be sharing more design discoveries from Paris over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
