I learned years ago that some of the most creative textile products at Maison & Objet came from Taj, Wood & Scherer. Today, I planned my visit to this company for the end of the day, intentionally keeping the best for last.
I walked into the stand in Hall 6, Row A late this afternoon to find Managing Director Roger Wood even more cheerful than usual. That’s because Taj, Wood & Scherer is celebrating its 10th anniversary. What a milestone! I have been visiting Roger for most of those years and I have loved each of his specialty-store collections in succession. The business began with embroidered/appliquéd/pieced cushions as the primary focus. Now the company also carries kids’ products, lampshades, wallets and more.
I have a picture at left of Roger, who looks both pleased and proud (which he should be!). He is standing in front of selections from his new kids’ collection. These pieces demonstrate the kind of design and handwork in each creation.
