It's that time of the year again: our favourite interior design fair is held in Paris and presents the most beautiful interior design trends and the latest decorative objects from 6 to 10 September. The leading trade fair has been held since 1995. This edition focuses mainly on professionals from the hospitality sector and also responds to new forms of work and office design.
Digitization makes us more mobile and co-working spaces are on the rise. Workspaces in the 21st century are anything but cold and impersonal and should promote an interactive way of working. In order to respond to this trend, Maison & Objet presents the theme 'WORK!' in this September edition of the fair. Furniture manufacturers, interior designers and distributors are increasingly focusing on elements of residential design in order to furnish offices and working environments. These cosy and less obstructive spaces promote creativity and motivation. M&O gives visitors a lot of inspiration on how to adapt a professional space to this trend. Hospitality
Professionals from the hospitality sector can also find inspiration at the fair about how they can give their business a modern update. In addition to the quality of the food or service in a hotel, the interior of a restaurant or hotel is increasingly playing a decisive role in its attractiveness and success. Is your business 'Instagrammable' enough? Maison & Objet shows you how to meet the needs of today's customers. Designer of the Year: Laura Gonzalez
Each edition, Maison & Objet also selects a 'designer of the year'. This time Laura Gonzalez is honoured for all the beautiful interiors she has already created for restaurants, bars, hotels and boutiques all over Paris and far beyond. The choice for this architect is in line with the themes mentioned above. She also designed Café Signature, where you can enjoy a delicious dish or dessert during the fair in a — what else would you expect — magnificent interior with a unique mix of colours, shapes and materials. Highly recommended for professionals from all sectors, and for individuals with a passion for interior and decoration it’s also a heaven to walk around in! The fair can still be visited until Tuesday 10 September. There is also a lot to discover in the wider area, as the Paris Design Week runs until 15 September. Make sure to already write 17-21 January 2020 in your journal for the next edition of Maison & Objet.
