TRENDS: MAISON & OBJET 2018
MAISON & OBJET 2018 TREND REPORT
Our interior designers are back from Paris with a wealth of ideas and inspiration. We bring you the UBER Interiors round up of the best brands and trends from Maison et Objet this year.
A favourite amongst our interior designers, JNL collection showcased a range of chic Spanish designs at Maison et Objet 2018. Luxurious upholstery in 1970’s inspired hues of avocado, vibrant orange and mustard yellow adorned their stylish chairs and sofas.
The black and white cabinet with the striped geometric pattern stood out to visitors of the stand. The perfect addition to a modern dining room, you could use this cabinet to store your favourite cocktail spirits, glassware and tableware.
Our interior designers were a big fan of the matte black paired with the beautiful, deep yellow shade and tropical wallpaper. To achieve this look at home try incorporating pops of yellow with monochrome accessories and tropical prints. Paint your walls in a classic taupe shade to get JNL’s sophisticated style.
Our interior designers were excited to see the latest products from Dutch brand Eichholtz this year. Celebrating 25 Years of luxury, Eichholtz are the masters of creating an eclectic style that combines classic colours and shapes with innovative materials and art deco influences.
Heavily influenced by the 1920’s, their glamorous stand featured incredible textured wallpaper resembling a palm leaf pattern and beautiful velvet upholstery. In contrast, petrified wood coffee tables stood out against the classic style sofas and accessories.
Eichholtz used plenty of gold metallics within their stand that worked beautifully with the striking shades of green and black. Our interior designers especially loved the set with the gold pendant lights and emerald sofa.
Associated with nobility and luxury, velvet has been dominating the interior design world for the last few seasons. Maison et Objet 2018 saw a large selection of furniture stands use velvet upholstery to showcase their designs. Both patterned and plain velvets were popular in retro hues of peach, green and ochre.
To incorporate this trend into your own home, opt for a sumptuous velvet sofa in either a dark green or a dusky pink shade. Alternatively, choose a dining chair or armchair in a plain or patterned velvet. Use big squashy throw cushions and bolster cushions on your sofa and bed to add a touch of velvet to your scheme.
With the insurgence of Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017, ‘Greenery’, we have seen a huge trend in green upholstery, particularly luxurious velvet in shades of forest green and emerald. Our yearning to reconnect with nature has spilled into our homes, where we have seen the rise of green upholstery, houseplants and botanical prints. At Maison et Objet 2018 there was no exception. Our interior designers loved the array of botanical print wallpaper seen at JNL Collection, Eichholtz and Ginger & Jagger. As we become more adventurous with wallpaper, we feel that wallpaper is one of the most effective ways of incorporating this trend into your interior this year.
PINK AND GOLD
Pink is having a moment within fashion and interiors, however, rather than being sickly sweet the brands at Maison Objet used it in a much more elegant and sophisticated way. By pairing with brushed gold, wood and lilac hues this trend is one of the most covetable looks for 2018.
Our interior designers were impressed with Eichholtz’s use of this hue. The pop of coral pink with the high-shine gold presents a summery look that will brighten any interior. The dusty pink armchair paired with tropical wallpaper and agate lamp was one of the stand-out sets from the show.
Our interior designers couldn’t help but fall in love with the Kiki Sofa by Portuguese brand Munna. The curved design and bubble-gum pink hue looked beautiful with the gold and lilac palm print wallpaper. Pink and gold is not only set for upholstery, we also saw the use of this shade in accessories such as the Baobab Collection candles. In support for Breast Cancer, Baobab have created a range of beautiful scented candles with a geometric pink pattern.
