Round-up from Maison & Object Paris 5-9 Sept 2014

We took the Eurostar down to Paris for a day of design extravaganza!
Here our impressions from our visit:

The crowd arrives from the direct train from the Gare du Nord to the Parc des Expositions


There are 8 very large halls - where to start?


Hall 8 - the coolest of them all!


Signage on the floor: just follow the arrows...


First stop: Rform by Randy Feys from Belgium - simple, stylish plywood furniture.


Copper is still very much 'in'!


As well as all shades of turquoise - lamps....


...ceramics - by Bleu d'argile...

 
...and accessories. Here by applicata, a Danish company.


More colours that we saw everywhere are fluorescent orange and pink.


Here at the Tom Dixon stand. He also still shows a lot of copper.

Some interesting lamps - this one by Jerome Pereira - beautifully hand crafted individual pieces.
