SPRING 2013: MAISON ET OBJET

MAISON ET OBJECT: Spring 2013

For those of you who follow my blog and attend my webinars on home furnishings, here are some highlights from the Maison et Objet show held in January for Spring 2013. I did not attend, but in reading the reports from the trend services I’ve picked out what looks especially good to me. Click here to view a very good video about it.

And, stay tuned for my in-depth report on the show which I will cover in September and present a webinar in October with lots of great ideas and visuals.


Overall Theme of the Show was “Crazy” which spoke to the new free-spirited approach to design.
