After exhibiting our newly expanded home range in Europe for the first time, we were thrilled with the warm reception we received at Maison et Objet. The largest luxury home and interiors show in Europe was a melting pot of styles, designers and trends - from the ultra-sleek and minimal to the bohemian.
To round off our week in Paris, we decided to summarise a few interiors trends that should be on your radar for 2018 that are sure to be featured in all the glossy magazines...
Witch and Watchman
1. Rich Botanicals
Flowers take on a more mature colour palette - with traditional floral prints gracing rich, jewel-toned backdrops of chocolate brown and Amethyst purple. Witch & Watchman exemplifies this trend with their Alice in Wonderland inspired wallpaper. One of our best-selling designs, Bird in Hand, is also a nod to this.
2. Dusky Pink
Michelle Oberdieck's candy coloured glass vases are works of art in themselves, whilst Melody Rose's range of playful bone china espouses classical motifs with 'millennial pink' for a delightful pop of colour. Houtique took this idea to the next level, with a stand almost entirely in the colour of the moment!
Jonathan Adler's eery head vase is reminiscent of Modigliani's stylised faces with a hint of Dali. Our own pebble print cushions embody this trend of transplanting the classic and the modern by combining old geological images with original abstract art. Seletti's stall was a world of its own, marrying banana shaped gold lamps with Gucci-esque serpentine flooring.
4. Gold Detailing
Silver is out, gold is in. Gold accents are more classically luxurious and imbue even the most modern materials with a sense of opulence. Jonathan Adler's exquisite embellished eye cushions were particularly unique whilst Boca De Lobo went all-out with their 24k stand.
5. Oriental Style Screens
Our custom-made screen was a fantastic way to display all 12 of our wallpaper designs - and we weren't the only ones embracing this! The new orientalism meets boudoir in this delightfully frivolous trend, that is nothing if opulent.

Poufs were everywhere: from the mid-century inspired baby pinks and teals of Brabbu to our own marbled stools upholstered in our velvet fabric. Houtique's pink fringed poufs in ovular shapes perfectly showed how versatile and fun these typically very traditional furnishings can be.
