Maison and Objet 2012 / A cheerful creative meeting point

There are some fairs and events which are very important to feel  the pulse of the design world. I think  Maison & Objet is one of them.  It is not only an industrial fair mainly for sourcing furniture and objects, it is a creative and artistic meeting point for  professionals who are seeking for inspiration for their brands and/or designs.

Even though, I could not visit the fair  this year, thanks to cyber world and friends, I have gathered some photos from Maison & Objet Paris 2012  and Design Sites which I found interesting. As far as I see, there is a boundless  freedom  in terms of using  materials, textures, scales and shapes. To design a space is rather a game   full of surprises and a transformation and not a result. After all, isn’ t it the challenge of creating?

Here are the raw silk swatches of 2012/2013 Interior trend colors. The highlight is the combination of bright colors with muted colors

Comfortable and playful furnitures for cheering spaces. Roche Bobois 2012/2013 collection  is classy and experimental as always

Cheerful unexpected combinations of  energic colors of Roche Bobois

Missoni‘ s green, spicy orange stripes and patterns matches nicely with the current interior trends

Black and white are indispensable again this year

Unusual retro shapes add coziness to spaces in a humaristic style

I just loved the art’keting concept of this year’s Maison & Objet. Time to consider interior design as part of art world now!

Blue Monoprints with pastoral scenes show they are indeed timeless by their beautiful details

The stripes, bold squares, black, white, grey and green shades makes a Nordic Vintage statement

The luxury, sheer and spark was  another strong theme of the fair

The  soft and wavy forms of the furnitures shape the elegance of the interiors

The stripes used on the floor confirms the optical illusion of surrealistic spaces

Net Vases bowls of Nendo shows the natural beauty of material itself

Free flowing Net Lambs of Nendo

imaginary thoughts come a live on Maison & Objet

New Modern defines itself as a  contemporary version of  warm Nordic Vintage Style

Energic, witty and quirky touches create euphoric spaces

Carrying natural beauty into interiors and creating ingenious spaces by unusual combinations of objects and materials
