Maison & Objet 2018 Trade Show Report


Attending and capturing information from major trade shows can be an overwhelming experience. Our reports provide in-depth coverage of the leading Home & Interiors and Kid’s Lifestyle shows; breaking down the information into clear themes, layered with expert trend analysis. These reports are an essential tool for those who can’t attend, or who don’t want to miss out on the important trends of the season.

Attracting up to 80,000 visitors from 142 countries, Maison & Objet is one of the biggest furniture and lifestyle events in the trade show calendar.

This year’s Maison et Objet was a multifaceted trade show, with design celebrating both sides of the minimial vs. maximal spectrum. Following several seasons of a predominantly restrained aesthetic, we can now see more brands shifting towards a more decorative and glamorous direction.

Rossana Orlandi’s statement “The table is much more important than the living room, because this is where you spend the most time”, in one of the show’s most inspiring interviews, proved valid. We were delighted to discover an array of new approaches in cutlery design and noticed an unusually high number of statement plates and decorations on display.

This year’s theme “Show Room” appropriately marks the new found space in the interior design world to embrace outlandish design once again, to collect and present objects. One of the show’s inspirational round ups dedicated a selection of products and art installations to the rising acceptance of narcissism and supplied many opportunities to indulge in the “selfie culture”.

This report is broken down into five sections covering trends for Print & Pattern, Surface & Material, Shape & Construction, Colour and summarising what’s continuing to be important.

We were impressed with the quality of the individual coaching. Not obtrusive or interfering, but genuinely steering the team to target objective.
