Today CovetED aims at identifying the highlights of Maison&Objet in Paris. As the largest interiors trade show in France Maison & Objet 2015 marked the occasion by acknowledging the handmade.
Celebrating it’s 20-year anniversary, Maison & Objet 2015 was the remarkable event where Elizabeth Leriche, a designer and stylist, presented a collection of both emerging and established artisans in her Human Made exhibition, made up of three “inspiration rooms” that celebrated this year’s theme. In keeping with the show’s annual tradition, Oki Sato of Nendo was named The Designer of The Year. His multi-sensory ‘chocolatexture’ lounge at the entrance of now! Design à vivre was a deliciously regressive space, where chocolate range by Nendo could be sampled with coffee, nestled amongst Nendo’s cutom cocoa-colored furniture.

The ultimate Nendo-chocolate-fest! This was a busy show for De La Espada, which launched twenty new pieces from four different design houses—Matthew Hilton, neri&hu, Autoban, and Luca Nichetto. Ligne Roset brought a vaunted design name of Pierre Paulin into the limelight with their new collection. The nine items in the collection are mostly re-issues of Paulin’s original designs from the 1950s.

We would like to introduce the best new gear unveiled at Maison&Objet – from furniture, lighting and accessories brought to you by design powerhouses and emerging talent alike.
This September Brabbu presented their new masterpiece – IGUAZU armchair. Overall, at Maison & Objet Paris, BRABBU premiered three new pieces, AGRA Marble Console, IGUAZU Wingback Chair and SEQUOIA Side Table. For the 3rd year in a row, BRABBU showcased a contemporary home décor fulfilled with mid-century modern furniture inspired by the forces of nature and cultures of the world.
Bronze Age Collection & Recession Chair by Tjep had a success as well. It contained all hand-crafted pieces formed from the material that represents the dawn of civilisation. The aim of the collection is to install connotations of human-caused disasters, such as climate change or a nuclear melt-down, putting these pieces at the centre of contemporary social issues.
The Show House and Purpose was pursuing its role as a distributor of modern and creative French furniture by expanding its collections to include exceptional new products designed by Patricia Urquiola, Patrick Jouin, Michael Anastassiades, Aki and Arnaud Cooren, Marco Zanuso Jr and Alain Moatti.

One of the most interesting novelties of this furniture show was Bamboo Lamp by Arik Levy for Forestier. This outdoor pendant light by Arik Levy for Forestier is available in three colours (red, black & green) and three standard sizes.
To conclude, Maison&Objet proved that it is more than just a place of new trends, it is a world of great products, furniture, lighting and other unique things.
