Maison et Objet 2019 Brings You The Must-Have Products Of The YearThursday 3 January 2019
Maison et Objet 2019 Brings You The Must-Have Products Of The Year ⇒ If you’re looking for the must-have products of the year, Maison et Objet 2019 has got you covered! Their 3 trend experts have deciphered the year’s trends and selected 500 new items that everyone will be talking about. They will be showcased at the “What’s New?” spaces, scattered throughout Maison et Objet. CovetED brings you a bit more about this wonderful initiative.
Decor by Elizabeth Leriche – Hall 3
For Elizabeth Leriche, the “Decor” zone is “a zone that showcases small furnishings, textiles, vases, boxes… all those little touches that bring a certain something to a room, that reflect current fashions and are key to giving the home a real sense of personality.” It was based on three different themes: Minimal Brutalist, Luxury Graphic and Ethnic Arty, all completely different from each other, bearing witness to the fact that we live in a society full of paradox where absolutely anything goes.
Leriche reveals that her three favourite items are “the suede, almost sculptural, wall hangings by Stéphane Parmentier for Giobagnara, both for the choice of material and for the overtly graphic feel; Rosa Maria Kulzer’s handcrafted ceramics, which really stand out because of the unique way in which she works the clay. They fulfil our need to reconnect with the land in the face of homogenization and dematerialization; and Ma Poésie’s graphic cushions, for their motifs, colours and the embroidery technique used.“
Share by François Bernard – Hall 1
About the “Share” zone, François Bernard says it is focused on tableware. “I hold it up as a yardstick for sharing and hospitality, which only has meaning if we truly accept to listen to others and show them appreciation. In actual fact, Greece has a unique hospitality concept I’ve never seen anywhere else: “Philotimo”, which roughly translates as “appreciating friends”. And showing appreciation for others brings with it a sense of self-appreciation.“, says the trend specialist.
His three favourite products are Paola Navone’s new crockery collection for Serax, a delightful fusion of Asia and Africa; Odile Decq’s series of clean-lined red platters for Alessi; and the stunning hand-blown swirled glassware from Laurence Brabant and Alain Villechange, a truly outstanding design duo.
Leisure by François Delclaux – Hall 2
François Delclaux claims that the “Leisure” zone “showcases travel and fashion accessories, stationery, games, connected objects and souvenir gifts to name but a few… Basically, items that put a smile on your face!“. This zone is separeted into three fictional countries: “Wood land”, which celebrates wood and all things hipster and natural; “Ice land”, which turns the spotlight on shiny and metallic pieces; and “Sun land”, where all the items exude a summery vibe and pack a colourful punch.
His three favourite items are Mam Originals’ exquisite wooden watch collection (bamboo, sandalwood…); the fish-shaped porcelain trinket boxes from &Klevering, which are delightfully fun and decorative; and the Memphis-inspired paper vases emblazoned with graphic motifs from Octaveo.
