Maison&Objet Paris


Maison&Objet Paris has just closed its September edition, placed under the theme ‘’Enjoy!’’ that drew an overall mindset of enthusiasm and excitement among the professional community of the design, home decor and lifestyle industries, spurred on by a significant international presence

As this edition of Maison&Objet Paris trade show opened amidst an economic context marked by a global slowdown, it is still noteworthy that the home sector (furniture, decorative accessories, lifestyle, and fine craftsmanship) still enjoys remarkable attractiveness among international buyers, both retailers and specifiers. They were all gathered for 5 days in a dynamic atmosphere at Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre.

Hospitality Lab: Hybrid spaces. The "Hospitality Lab," located at the heart of Hall 6, showcased the hybrid and forwardlooking visions of new hospitality venues, designed, and staged by four key players in the sector: Fabien Roque (Roque Intérieurs), Friedman & Versace, The Socialite Family, and the Accor Group who was introducing the winners of its design competition. Here, Maison&Objet highlighted its ability to create unique and staging reception areas, thanks to its multi-category and exceptional design and lifestyle product offers. These architectural concepts are becoming awaited destinations on the show, where the boundaries between hospitality and residential spaces become increasingly subtle. Inspire Me! The Trend Forum of the exhibition. This immersive and experiential trend forum, created in collaboration with Peclers International agency, embodied the theme of the show and its variations for the first time in many years. Visitors were able to envision the sociological and stylistic changes in the market through a prospective journey. Complemented by an Instagram live and a virtual reality tour, visitors enjoyed a unique experience that served as a source of inspiration for their future projects

Mélanie Leroy, Managing director of Maison&Objet, concludes: "Innovation, novelty, quality, and the continuous pursuit of environmentally friendly manufacturing processes offered by the exhibition's participants are an appropriate response to buyers facing increasing demand for products that support a sustainable way of consumption. When the exhibition ends, our MOM platform takes over - its European marketplace was launched in April 2023. This unique extension in the market allows buyers who did not attend the show to place their orders and provides brands with expanded business opportunities, before or after physical meetings. Indeed, with 480,000 international professionals in our network, including 300,000 in the European Union, MOM continuously amplifies the impact of the exhibition. As a product of MOM, we propose to develop B2B e-shops for market players. Leveraging our digital expertise, we are proud to continue being a genuine creative and economic catalyst for the sector!" In the capital, the experience continues until September 16 with Paris Design Week. This event has become a design festival, offering Maison&Objet visitors an inspiration journey through more than 400 events to explore. Parisians can also enjoy a festive approach to design and home decor, serving as an ideal complement to immerse themselves in a definitively dynamic and attractive sector.
