Maison & Objet is known worldwide as one of the top go-to trade fairs for new trends. No wonder 76,502 visitors from 171 countries made their way to Paris for the September edition. They shopped 3,112 exhibitors of furniture and decorative objects, including 647 new brands.
In every hall at the fair, color trends stood out. Yesterday’s big draw, Millennial pink, saw another warm hue steal the spotlight: orange. Greens favored warmth, too, but for blues it was a split decision. In the mid-tone range, countertrending blues stood neck-and-neck.
Products did their best to look unusual. A shift in materials preferences became a major factor here. Mixed-media combinations were another part of this story. Functionality also played a role, as did chunky silhouettes that were just getting a foothold.
There was so much more happening at Maison & Objét. That's why The Trend Curve used almost 70 pages and more than 130 images to tell you about the trend colors, materials and motifs that made the show so important this season. And it's ready for you to download and dig into right now!
