Paris is the place to be in January with a busy agenda of gallery previews and trade shows—including
Maison & Objet, which took place January 18-22—plus the exclusive American Party in Paris held
under the 13th-century arches of the Collège des Bernardins.
The twice-yearly Maison & Objet changed its format this year, separating the show into two distinct
categories: home interior, and objects and accessories.
With over 600 new brands exhibiting, there was much to explore across the eight halls, including the
exhibition of German designer Sebastian Herkner as Designer of the Year, Excuse My French!
curated by Vincent Grégoire from NellyRodi Agency, and the Rising Talents Awards.

While the weather outside was decidedly chilly, brands demonstrated their desire for a warmer
palette by filling the halls with peach, terracotta, ochre, and rich berry tones.
Ligne Roset embraced the warm hues and unveiled several new pieces, including the Astaire
designed by renowned plastic artist Pierre Charpin, and the ochre-hued Clam, the winning
submission by Léo Dubreil and Baptiste Pilato from its annual Concours Cinna Révélateur de
Talents design talent contest.
Other brands embracing earth-toned hues included Eno Studio, Portuguese brand Dooq, Woud
and outdoor manufacturer Expormim.
This contrasted with the other emerging theme, which curator and interior designer Elizabeth
Leriche termed “Minimal Brutalist” in her exhibition What’s New. With the growing desire for
tactility, raw materials, and clean lines, the emphasis was on textures such as rattan, cane, rough
surfaces, and pared-back pieces.
