Maison et Objet 2020
Over the weekend, designers from Rigby & Rigby attended Maison et Objet in Paris to gather inspiration for the year ahead and source products for some of our private client projects. The trade fair is held in January every year and is one of the leading fairs for design and decoration. With over 6000 brands exhibiting at the event, the team spent time looking out for new trends and suppliers.
3 trends our designers spotted at the fair
There is a huge trend for curved seating and a focus on irregular shapes with softer edges. Curved pieces are great for encouraging more free flowing movement throughout and around a living space.
Poufs & Stools
Poufs and stools have become a key part of today’s room compositions and creates additional seating to a living room design whilst complementing a larger suite of furniture.
Light timber joinery & Furniture
The trend towards light wood furniture is coming into its own with many designers opting for woods on the lighter end of the palette. Pale timbers work especially well in bedrooms; the light finish creates a soothing space and sense of calm. Our Project W8 100 celebrates a pale palette of timber with neutral furniture and a Scandinavian design style.
