The 7 Best Things We Spotted at Maison Et Objet in Paris

Sourced content from:

Paris is always a good idea, but there are two times a year when, for design-lovers, it’s extra-special. Maison Et Object, a trade fair held in the City of Lights in September and January, is where you can always expect to discover new, cutting-edge products, innovative brands, and endless interior inspiration. This week, our style editor, Elaina Sullivan, and style assistant, Julia Stevens, packed up their bags and jetted off to scope out all the freshest finds for your home.

The show was full of covetable items, from space-saving foldable bed frames to baseball-game fare in rug form (!). Paris, too, held its timeless allure. “While we found so many goodies along the rows of Maison et Objet, the city of Paris had just as many discoveries,” Julia says. “Between drinks at Frenchie Bar à Vins and dinners at Balagan, the shops of the Marais also blew us away.” Here are the Maison pieces that our team can’t stop talking about. 

The Out-of-This-World Light Fixture

“Modern meets vintage in this pendant from Hudson Valley Lighting’s Corbett line. I love the way they had a bunch hung at different heights in their showroom.” —Julia

The Condiment-Friendly Rug

“There were so many amazing children’s brands and this was definitely one of the highlights. We’ve seen their rockers at  Kinder Modern, but the hot dog and ice cream cone rugs are our new favorites.” —Elaina

The French Take on the Murphy Bed

“This bed is one of the best and most affordable space-saving solutions we’ve seen on the market. It’s perfect for studio apartments when you need to maximize square footage.” —Elaina

The Cool Curtain

“This Zurich-based brand has it all: fun designs across several product categories, ethical production, and a super cool team. We love everything they do!” —Elaina

The All-in-One Nightstand

“There was a ton of modular furniture at the show, but this brand took it to another level. The same birchwood legs and powder-coated plates can create desks, shelves, lamps, coffee tables, and more. What they become is up to the owner—and the best part is no tools are necessary.” —Julia

The Inflatable Armchair

“These were a total showstopper—not to mention surprisingly comfortable! I love the natural wood base paired with the poppy neon plastic.” —Julia

The Metropolitan Coat Rack

“A coat rack that doubles as sculptural art. (It’s meant to mimic a turreted city.) Every arch has a purpose: throw scarves through the loops and umbrellas in the center.” —Julia
