We are loving our time at Maison et Objet Paris and delighted the Illusion collection is being so well received. Here are just a selection of images of the stand for those of you who can’t visit us there, for those who can find us in Hall 7, Stand A73!
The exhibition Precious by Elizabeth Leriche in Hall 7 was presenting artists, artisans and designers who were revisiting the codes of luxury. We were very impressed by Lionel Esteve who applies gold leafs on plants.
Yana Svetlova was presenting her first collection Art Of Imitation with watercolor panos and big scale wallpapers.
The designer of printed fabrics for home decoration Lalie Design was presenting various colourful prints. In the bedroom displayed, there were seven prints that can be mixed together in the same room. The result was quiet unique.
Six designs from the bespoke lighting designer Sharon Marston were exposed. We really liked their delicate and organic shapes.
We also discovered the stunning creations in sculpted wood by Etienne Moyat. His finished pieces combined contemporary curves and primitive and raw materials.
Architect@Work showcases innovations in architecture and design and new products from across the globe at various locations worldwide.
Our Parisian representative Agnes Guillard visited the Paris edition of A@W in November. Here she selects her stand-out products and picks from the show:
A new wallpaper collection from Nobilis with silver and gold finishes caught Agnes’ eye.
Metallics aren’t going anywhere, see Edison’s recent post on utilising silver and gold in interiors.
Agnes was very taken by the bold colour-ways and innovative embossed work in this presentation of a new process called SWOOM by French Cabinetmakers and Designers James. The surface applications for SWOOM are endless.
Again intense colours and bold graphics single out these traditionally made tiles with a 21st Century twist from Normandy Ceramics.
Marburg by Sedim
Bold pattern, geometric relief work and clever use of metallics in this graphically strong offering from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wallpaper and wall coverings.
Belgian Surface Designers Odilon Creations draw upon their passion for materials and colour to design revised and reinterpreted materials into a contemporary context using ancient techniques.
Deirdre Dyson’s European Representative, Agnes Guillard, was recently approached by a Parisian Interior Designer to create a carpet for a residential project based in Germany.
Deirdre’s SPIRAL design was selected in its original colour ways.
In collaboration with the designer, and as part of our bespoke service, we re-worked the colours and simplified the design, in order to enhance the furniture selection and play with the silk and wool materials.
SPIRAL looks stunning in its final scheme and really connects with the architect designed table.

Here are some of her favourite M&O picks.
M&O’s centrepiece was the whimsical House of Games inspiration zone celebrating ‘elegant maximalism’ and featuring collaborations including a bookshop and cafe.
Agnes was so taken by Japanese design collective Team-lab‘s ‘Forest of Resonating Lamps’ she visited the installation twice!
The late Zaha Hadid‘s homeware collection launched at the show, incorporating bone china, ceramics, resin and wood.
The scent and colour of the Italian brand Mr & Mrs Fragrance stand was intoxicating.
And finally Agnes spotted these animal ‘art’ cushions by Artpilo a fun way to introduce this trend into your home.
Deirdre Dyson conjures up nature’s transient beauty with launch of Vista Collection
A reflection of the unravelling of time itself; the skeleton of a MAPLE and the shadow of its memory, the peeling skin of a silver birch and tumbling stones in a rushing brook, Deirdre Dyson returns to the international stage with the launch of her striking new VISTA Collection at Maison & Objet Paris (January 20-24, 2017 – Hall 7 Stand H116). Stimulated by nature’s ephemeral splendour, the nine new carpet designs showcase Deirdre’s signature contemporary style.
“My Vista Collection is inspired by glimpses and observations taken on walks in the countryside – standing under trees with falling leaves, enchanted by bulrushes in still water and exquisite bright green water lilies floating above a mysterious deep, dark pond. I like to use colour grading techniques and strong and subtle tonal contrasts to create optical illusions, highlighting nature’s dramatic and transient beauty. The collection is intended to inspire clients to commission their own piece of art for the floor.”
Deirdre Dyson’s training in fine art is apparent in her masterful use of colour across the collection. In BULRUSHES, the gradual change in hue and precise contrast in light and shade create the illusion of reflection on still water to beautiful effect. Similarly, the tonal change in LILY POND emphasises the depth of the pond and contrasts effectively with the brightness of the lily pads – a circular silhouette makes this a true representation of the natural world. Deirdre’s characteristic wit is exemplified in UNRAVEL, drawing on the core inspiration of real landscapes, whilst depicting the concept of unravelling threads, naturally colour-graded to perfection.
Each Deirdre Dyson carpet is totally bespoke and can be fitted or free-standing. Customers can take inspiration from Deirdre’s ideas, but apply their own personal touch through colour, shape, size and design elements. Deirdre’ Dyson makes carpets to suit different budgets and applications. They can be hand-knotted by Tibetan experts, practiced in this ancient skill, who use Chinese or Indian silk and the finest Tibetan wool. Or they can be hand-tufted in Scotland or Yorkshire, from the best quality New Zealand wool.
Deirdre recently created two bespoke carpets for our Parisian showroom at luxury design space Luxe d’interieur and the resulting designs look amazing in situ!
Our Parisian Representative Agnes Guillard worked with Deirdre to shortlist designs that not only worked with the elegant partner brands displayed in the apartment-style setting but also suggested colours she felt would appeal to Parisian tastes. They both agreed the designs would have to feature Deirdre’s signature colour grading.
Deirdre then re-imagined this year’s UNRAVEL for the ‘dining room’ using a palate of subtle creams, beiges and browns on a contrasting ground of cleverly graded greys across a broad tonal range and used the same background grading for TWILIGHT destined for the ‘sitting room’ area.
Having these carpets on display at Luxe d’intérieur allows clients to visualise the rugs in their own home and above all appreciate the quality of our wool and silk hand knotted designs.
The Luxe d’intérieur showroom is situated in 81 rue du rocher, Paris 8 – Metro Villers and is strictly by appointment only – to arrange a bespoke consultation with Agnes and view these designs click here.
Agnes was particularly taken with the Comfort Zone in Hall 7 an area dedicated to promoting ‘physical calm and peace of mind’ in the home environment.
The pink and pastel trend shows no sign of abating, toned down pastels and pale pink hues were a prominent feature across a wide product range.
One of Agnes favourite brands and long-time M&O exhibitor is Objet de Curiosité, a French brand from Lyon whose eclectic exhibits provide a quirky and humorous stand.
A stand out brand for Agnes was HEY-SIGN which presented innovative, design-oriented products customised in high quality wool felt in bright, enlivening colours.
Agnes final pick matériO was created in 2000 by a young French team who track cutting edge materials and emerging material innovation from all over the world.
