Patti Carpenter reports home design trends from Maison & Objet.

As we set out on a quest for pleasure this season, the theme of Maison & Objet was ENJOY: in a quest for pleasures! There was an audacious dose of color and humor as we were encouraged to seek out and celebrate our inner child and to embrace extravagance, optimism, hope, hedonism and joy. Patterns burst forth, following several seasons of spectacular solids, exploding across the show in modern motifs made to be mixed, matched and layered. For the full trend report, click here

This was the most inspiring of the trends for me and it allows us to include the toiles and other delicate drawings, stripes, densely packed florals, deco and art nouveau inspirations and my favorite the neo geos. These graphic patterns are a joyful nod to nostalgia and a call to reminisce, reflect and indulge in a retro-inspired time period, but with a beautifully bold color refresh.

As all of life needs its balance, softer shades continued, but they are subtly nuanced, playing with light and shadow. Tactility featured heavily here as well, and all of this provides us with the perfect foundation for a timeless approach to simpler spaces and the quiet reflection that supports our well-being.

To that end, we introduced the Wellness and Beauty section of the show this edition to great response. There were sensory immersion opportunities that included yoga classes and light bathing. I even had my aura read!!

As always, there is something for every taste and the days pass full of innovation and inspiration and wonderful creative conversations. Hoping you will be a part of its next edition! 

Till then, ENJOY!!
