I’ve had an incredibly busy month so as a quick fix here are a few images from Maison et Objet trend areas.
Art’keting by Francios Bernard looked at “Hyper-personalization” bringing the unexpected in and creating a space where the home is a work of art and you are its creator. Its a rather uplifting attitude to the home , especially in a time of such upheaval and continuing economic gloom. Each room had its own personality and ambiance – perhaps I’m a little schizophrenic but I’d be happy in each of the three I’ve picture below!
Geo room (seen above featured) Gravel Plant by Mieke Meijer (seen in the foreground) and like Mieke’s piece plays with shapes and volume within the home environment.
The Playmobile table above was specially commissioned for Art’keting – I think it was my favourite piece in the whole show. I’d love this playful mini army in my house! Bringing more character into the home was one of my posts from last year.
Moderniste looked like the room of a huge Picasso fan!
The Dream Box by Elizabeth Leriche was a trip into the imaginary world. Above is a room of f twisted perspectives. Over sized teacups, oversized necklace with a light and a HUGE pink Anglepoise Lamp. The Alice in wonderland effect completed with a tiny door.
Within this dreamscape it was wonderful to finally experience Carnovsky’s RGB wallpaper designs! As the light changes colour different parts of the pattern leap out at you. Possibly a little nighmareish for a bedroom but amazing all the same!
