A guest post today by Stephanie Rammeloo
End of January I (=Stephanie) visited Salon Maison & Objet in Paris. It is a big trade market with a lot of home design, where you can find the latest trends on interior fashion. A tiny part of the fair is Objets de Mode, with small boots for little design companies, like La Cerise sur le Gâteau, Zoe de las Cases, Miss Print and Numero 74 . The designs are all really personal and authentic. But, if you want a general trend, there's a lot of humour in it and a lot of colour.(right image by coco amardeil)
La Cerise sur le Gâteau makes home linen, like dish cloths and bed linen, but I like the pillow cases best. With which you can add a light, funny and colorful touch to your house.
Zoe de las Cases makes inventive, cute objects for your house. Like posters, bags and boxes with beautiful old family pictures printed on them, or a game with different scents. Her latest design is this stamp kit, which you can use to cheer up you paperwork. (Like contracts or bills, for instance.)
I loved the wall paper and fabric by Miss Print. The fabrics are all hand printed. The wall paper Dandelion, shown in this picture, is also available in yellow and grey.
Numero 74 from Italy restores (and sells) beautiful vintage children's furniture and also makes lovely soft hand knitted blankets and toys ...
While I tried to skip a few halls I got lost in the hall with all the big fabric producers. Luckily, because otherwise I would never have met the wonderful fabric designer Marie Riche of Lalie Design. Unfortunately her booth was too full to take a good picture of it, so she sent me and overview of some of her fabrics.
I also stumbled upon these wonderful, handprinted pillows by Geneviève Lévy édition.
Thank you Stephanie ... tomorrow another post by Stephanie about the trends she spotted at Maison et Objet.
