The much talked about interior design trade show Maison & Objet Paris drew to a close on 23 January 2018. The ‘Who is who’ of the design world not just from France or Europe but from all over the world rubbed shoulders with each other, the newbies, the up-and-coming local and international designers, and the design-interested public.Maison & Objet Paris MOJ18_Hall3_What'sNew3_AET6892_679

Exceptional ideas, news, and designs were presented and exchanged, talks blew people’s minds, and the energy and dynamism of the show set the pace for 2018 and the design world. Throughout the show, it was apparent that there is more global uniformity in design than ever before.Maison & Objet Paris 18_Hall7_InspirationShowroom__AET4928_007

The transparency through the media, especially social media, not only opens the eyes of the beholders geographically but it is also an ‘inside-out’ between public and private spaces. To stand out, designers focus on personalization and the sharing economy as well as collaboration.Maison & Objet Paris 18_Federico Peri_FontanaArte_Galerie wall lamp

Maison & Objet was also a place where lots of prizes and awards were given and tons of compliments were paid.Maison & Objet Paris 18_Hall3_What'sNew3_AET7003_732(1)

A whole section on Italian design paid tribute to the neighbor country and industry for its solid creations founded on the past experiences and thriving on the current and future makers and shakers. Visitors to the show had a chance to meet design queens Rossana Orlandi and Nina Yashar in person.Maison & Objet Paris 18_Atelier LAVIT - VENEZIA chair Nilufar Gallery 3 ©MarcoLavitNicora

The trend scouts spent a lot of time on the exhibition floors and honed into their ‘Les Decouvertes’. These were awarded cool recognitions:
