Maison & Objet: Event Series
Posted on 24 January 2017
On Monday 23rd of January like many other designers I hopped on the Eurostar to discover the show that I heard so much about Maison & Objet in Paris, and I'm happy to say I was not disappointed. My mission was for discovery and investigation to explore the trade show and to see if Copper could nestle its way between its fellow household names.
Roberto Cavalli Home, Silkka & Porada
The hall is divided into eight halls, and when they say the space is big, its an understatement, but each hall is beautifully curated to suit the burning desire of every designer. Easy to follow with clearly sign posted directories including a convenient app, the show is avaliable for you to create your own unique experience. With five hours to play with, I carefully selected the halls I felt the most connection with and allowed myself to travel.
Polspotten, Magic Circus & Petite Friture
Without a shadow of a doubt hall eight, was by far my favourite the hall is dedicated to luxury influences such as Missoni, Roberto Cavalli and Christian Lacroix. Each stand carefully highlighted the brands best creations from their latest collection. The space felt like Aladdin's cave, with a new discovery on each corner. This feeling of discovery continued throughout the rest of the halls. What was pleasing to see, was that each designer had clearly been vetted to ensure only top quality products were on show, maintaining the authenticity and the name affiliated with Maison & Objet.

The burning question would I exhibit at Maison? One hundred and fifty percent, however I feel the Copper Dust needs to develop and do a few more shows at home before it takes the plunge. Overall a great experience a show I would highly recommend, with Copper Dust exhibiting soon.
