Handmade textiles and floral patterns
The British wallpaper maker Fromental creates unique designs, handcrafted with calligraphic painting and embroidery. At Maison & Object, the brand presented silk-based wall textiles, inspired by the interiors of the Villa Santo Sospierre in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, whose walls were painted by Jean Cocteau.

The Milan design studio Dimore also suggested using more actively textiles with floral patterns this season. Its founders Britt Moran and Emiliano Salchi are renowned for their skillful blending of textures, aging, embroidery and embossing.
While Fromental looked to the West and was inspired by Jean Cocteau's drawings, designer Martin Lawrence Bullard turned his gaze to the East. He created the Sultan palace wallpaper series after researching the halls of Istanbul's Topkapi Palace.
Black and white geometry
Several design studios presented interiors with monochrome geometric elements. For example, the Lisbon brand Mambo unlimited ideas offers a versatile use of black and white drawings - from wall tiles to furniture.
A lover of glamorous chic and bright colors, American Jonathan Adler this time also "performed" in black and white. And as color spots I used posters depicting scarlet lips.
The French carpentry workshop Drugeot showed an asymmetrical bookcase made of solid oak at Maison & Object. The manufacturer has diluted the laconic design with several colored shelves.
Japanese design studio Nendo has created a collection of furniture and accessories in its signature minimalist style. She brought four items to Paris - a table, a chair, a shelf and a storage unit, made in silver.
But the Canadian designer Martha Stardy, on the contrary, made minimalism and geometry colored. At the exhibition, she presented cylinder stools, round wall decorations and shelving lines. She described her series of items as "the study of simplicity," and chose resin as her material.
A lot of lighting objects were featured at Maison & Object. The French company Forestier showed pendant lamps shaped like rosebuds.
Claude Cartier Décoration studio of French designer Claude Cartier showed discreet lamps and floor lamps that refer to the middle of the last century. The Spanish company Llardo, on the other hand, brought to the exhibition luxurious chandeliers and lamps from the latest collection. By the way, the brand makes the base of Lotus Firefly floor lamps from porcelain.
Maison & Object was not without a "Russian trace". The Czech company Preciosa, together with the designer Dima Loginov, has created a series of Siren lamps. The bell-shaped lampshades were made by hand from clear and frosted glass.
