Maison Objet Miami

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I heard that Maison Objet, the French trade show for interior design that has taken place in Paris only, was having its debut in America in Miami May 2015. I decided to venture to Miami yesterday (twist my arm) and see what Maison & Objet (Americas) was all about.

Maison Objet in the Miami Beach Convention Center had just over 300 exhibitors from all over the world. The diversity ranged from high profile companies to new rising star artisans which gave the show a new twist to its more established show in Paris…think “Boutique Maison”!

The venvue was easy to navigate which left me with a few hours to explore the Miami Design District which too has grown over the years! With the success of Art Basel and the expansion of the Design District Miami does seem to be the right and natural choice for Maison in America!

Enjoy some of my highlights from my day at Maison Objet in America as well as images from the Miami Design District!

Hanging at the High Point Furniture Market-Textiles and Texture

By Nancy Fire

Textiles and Texture…a mix of “Rustic Glam” was prevalent throughout many of the showrooms this market at High Point.

Textured wood, fur accent pillows, sculptural lamp bases, mixed substrates like metal and wood, painted textured tables, fabric and metal lighting, teak and concrete stools, pecky cypress wood, feminine prints paired with texture, lighting with natural elements as well as feathered and fringed pillows.

The diversity of texture both on hard surfaces like wood and metal, as well as soft surfaces like textiles and rugs was creative and updated offering designers many choices in style and substrate.

Hanging at High Point Furniture Market in NC

Fast and furious times at the High Point Furniture Market…short trip this market but never a shortage of talent!

Being partial to the “softer side of home” the textiles this market are so creative and inspiring from beautiful printed florals to amazing textured woven collections!

Metals are truly mixed this season as we notice warm and cool metallics in many of the showrooms either as accents or main substrates. I especially love how Ann Gish uses a metallic yarn in her “Le Chic” bed ensemble this season.

Color was everywhere from outdoor products to indoor digitally printed dec pillows….the brighter, the better!

Always inspired at the High Point Furniture Market!
