Interior Design Shows around the world

Finding inspiration at design shows.

Have you ever been to Paris? Did you know that it’s home to one of the world’s premiere interior design shows?

Maison & objet offers inspiration and trendsetting design for home textiles, tableware, furniture and every kind of accessory for the home that you can imagine.

From the website:

“A one-of-a-kind, indispensable gathering of the greatest, most talented international designers, scènes d’intérieur once again offers visitors the most luxurious visions, the best of high-end decoration and home fashion within a unique space in which the most prestigious brands have come together. “





One recent exhibit at the show that inspired me was called “Rain”, by Thierry Gaugain. A poetic installation, it was design to create an “atmosphere of chill light rain, like a magical world”. This installation is a perfect example of how just lighting itself can be the focus of the room.
