Trend spotting at Maison et Objet
At the Maison et Objet 2018 show this past September, you couldn’t help but feel design all around! The yearning to discover what the trends in home decor and interior design for this year’s Fall-Winter seasons were going to be was palpable. The most special thing to look for was the upholstery fabrics. Not only do they cover all the essential furniture products of a house, but they can be transformed into something brighter and more creative.
Decorative pillows, drapes, bedding…the list is endless, but whether we like it or not, trends follow us everywhere and we can’t totally escape it. However, the fun part of it is that you can always mix things up and create your own trends or even your own styles.
To better understand this environment, here are the Five trends spotted at the best European tradeshow:
Geometric patterned fabrics
Just like people’s attitudes, geometric shapes can also determinate character traits. The ones you choose for the projects in your favourite spaces will tell everyone a lot about you. Give some character to your spaces while still making them feel cozy and homey.
Bright coloured fabrics
Every home needs a splash of colour. Not only to warm up the room and for it to feel lived in, but also to transmit a very light and upbeat atmosphere. With different colourful fabrics, you won’t want to leave the house or the office.
Tropical patterned elements
It is always nice to have some elements that are nature inspired in your home decor whether it is on pillows, throws, drapes, rugs or even furniture. A tropical themed fabric collection is always a good choice as it has nature at the same time that they remind us of spring and summer days.
Peculiar shaped upholstery
Everyone wants their favourite space to have an eye-catching element that will blow everyone away. Why can’t it be a small armchair or a big wall-to-wall sofa? The most important thing is that it has a unique design different from what you are used to seeing.
Fabrics on the wall
Traditional interior design can be modern and chic there is no denying that. However, thinking outside of the box is the way to go to customize your personal preferences just like mismatched dining chairs at a dining table or a rug on the wall.
Maison et Objet has come and gone this year, but its trends will still be among us until next year’s edition in Paris, Jan. 18 to 22, 2019.
