Maison & Objet 2016 – favourite decor and furniture finds

This year has started off on an amazingly inspirational note for me, as I was able to visit Paris’s Maison & Objet show for the first time, for an eye-popping yet design- appetite satisfying two full days.  What’s it like?  In one word: Massive.  Seven halls the size of a Toronto design show (for example) of companies, designers and artisans organized by themes such as: Actuel (contemporary, would be the “translation”), Elegant (of period and/or very traditional), Cosy (focusing on soft furnishings, drapery, feminine, casual, resort & cottage), Eclectic (artisan, hand-made, unique).

Decor highlights from London Design Week

The very best of design, decor and craftsmanship in Britain and beyond was featured at this year’s London Design week at a number of locations.  The sheer number of places to go to,  special events, companies and products was outstanding, therefore some serious editing of personal favourites had to be done.  It’s called a “design week” for a reason;  you really need a full week to do it all!

Here’s a few of the most inspiring things I’ve seen, largely focusing on residential interior design and decor and only from a select few of the numerous  venues: 100% Design, Decorex and Design Junction’s two locations.
