Paris is always a good idea, but there are two times a year when, for design lovers, it’s extra-special. Maison & Objet, a trade fair held in the City of Light in September and January, is where you can always expect to discover new, cutting-edge products; innovative brands; and endless interior inspiration. This week, our style editor, Elaina Sullivan, and style assistant, Julia Stevens, packed their bags and jetted off to scope out all the freshest finds for your home.
The Out-of-This-World Light Fixture
Modern meets vintage in this pendant lamp from Corbett Lighting. I love how the brand styled different sizes clustered together in its showroom. —Stevens
The Condiment-Friendly Rug
There were so many amazing children’s brands, and this was definitely one of the highlights. We’ve seen its rockers at Kinder Modern, but the hot dog and ice cream cone rugs are our new favorites. —Sullivan
The French Take on a Murphy Bed
This bed is one of the best and most affordable space-saving solutions we’ve seen on the market. It’s perfect for studio apartments when you need to maximize square footage. —Sullivan
The Cool Curtain
This Zurich-based brand has it all: fun designs across several product categories, ethical production, and a super-cool team. We love everything they do! —Sullivan
The All-in-One Nightstand
There was a ton of modular furniture at the show, but this brand took it to another level. The same birchwood legs and powder-coated plates can create desks, shelves, lamps, coffee tables, and more. What they become is up to the owner—and the best part is no tools are necessary. —Stevens
The Inflatable Armchair
These were a total showstopper—not to mention surprisingly comfortable! I love the natural wood base paired with the poppy neon plastic. —Stevens
The Metropolitan Coatrack
A coatrack that doubles as sculptural art. (It’s meant to mimic a turreted city.) Every arch has a purpose: Throw scarves through the loops and umbrellas in the center. —Stevens
