If you didn’t know already, I travel…a LOT! My most recent trip was to Maison & Objet, a lifestyle uber tradeshow featuring all things “design.” It takes place at an exhibition center outside of Paris and covers 246,000 square meters or about 61 acres.
My traveling companion, assistant, and color/design associate, Melissa Bolt, walked every inch of the show with me, photographing our foray into the stadium-size halls.
We became immediately aware of the presence of design trends we have noted in recent seasons:
Eyeglasses as wall art and part of home décor accessories,…
…Owls peering from their perches,…
…Butterflies still flying high,…
…Shoes as wearable art,…
… crowns that are not exclusively for royalty,
…and concentric circles, as seen in these South African wire bowls
to name just a few.
I wonder if the owls and eyeglasses as Art are a creative sign,symptom or comment on modern life. That’s how I feel I look after looking at monitors and tech screens for too long!haha
Hi Lee, what a pity we didn’t ran into eachother. Hope you had a great time in Paris. Lots of greetings from Belgium, Jeannette
It would have been nice to cross paths. Wishing you well from the Pacific Northwest.
