Maison & Objet Trend Report
9 Sep 2019
September is Paris’ time to shine. As it welcomes one of the highlights of the design year, Maison & Objet, interior & design professionals flock to the capital to seek out the newest & most exciting interior styles for the coming year. We’ve had a sneak peek at some of the stand-out looks from the September show, and found the key trends that will be shaping the look and feel of our homes. 2020, it’s going to be a great year for interiors…
Primed and polished, this luxe look lets the materials do the talking. Featuring a cosmetic colour palette of deep grape, soft walnut and warm tannin, it takes indulgent materials such as leather, fur, marble and velvet and pairs them with a baked colour palette for a look that’s timeless & tasteful. Favouring warm metallics over cool, Baked Elements brings gold back into the limelight once more, and we couldn’t be happier. Brass and copper served us well for the last few years, but as we move into 2020 we’ll be waving goodbye to industrial metallics and looking towards glimmering gold accessories that’ll make the neutral colour palette pop.
Like browsing the souks & markets of Marrakesh or wandering through local boutiques in a far-flung destination, this look celebrates colour, pattern and texture. Reminiscent of the treasures you pick up on your travels, it gives block prints and hand carved details the attention they deserve, favouring artisanal handicrafts over mass-produced perfections. The bold palette of fuchsia rose, burnt ochre and vintage indigo are softened by neutral greys and off whites, whilst colour-pop patterns across accessories and linens makes Global Treasures a look that’s hard to ignore.
We’ve embraced 50 shades of grey thanks to Scandi Minimalism, but as we move into 2020 it’s time to warm things up. Oatmeal and linen tones are taking over grey as our new favourite neutral, and we’ll be going back to basics with natural materials in a bid to live more consciously, a common theme throughout Maison & Objet. Furniture made from pared-back woods and ceramic accessories with painterly prints add a little country charm, whilst flashes of green olive and honey mustard stop the overall scheme from looking too washed out. Simplistic styling, no heavy patterns. In 2020 we’re going back to basics.
