Maison + Objet Paris with Grange Furniture February 06 2015 1 Comment

I arrived back from my trip to Paris and Lyon, France this week, and wow what a trip! I am absolutely brimming with inspiration and ideas! When I initially won the trip through the Grange contest I was to be honest in a bit of disbelief. I had always dreamed of traveling back to France and every year gobbled up coverage of Maison + Objet and I am still pinching myself that all of it came true! 

I honestly wasn't quite sure what to expect at Maison + Objet, I have gobbled up the coverage via the internet in the past but walking the show in person was something else. I was blown away by the sheer size of all of the halls,  I felt like a kid in a candy store. Everywhere I looked were fabulous products, so many colors, so many patterns. It was honestly overwhelming in the absolute best way possible! I felt like my senses were working overtime, the sights, the smells (yes smells!), and the textures. I tried to take it all in! Despite me being slightly overwhelmed and overjoyed at this coming together of companies and people from all over the world  for the love of design I did spot some design trends that I am sure will make a big splash in the coming year. But first lets kick it off with the companies booth that gave me this amazing opportunity, Grange!

 

 

I was floored by the size of some of the booths especially the Grange booth, they were like showrooms floating around the trade show floor, crazy!

Jewel tones popped up everywhere as they seem to be trending colors that are holding strong. This cabinet with the butterfly wallpaper front was also a showstopper. These winged beauties were a motif that repeated itself throughout the show as well.

 

I am obsessed with this aqua / rusty aqua / neutral palette. It is unexpected yet fresh. This collection is part of Grange's new intros and it felt very New England cosy and relaxed yet chic. I love to be daring with colors and this color is one of the many finishes Grange offers.

 A sleek way to hide your tv and electronics, I'm sold! Shown here open...

 

And with a single push, the two shelves slide seamlessly together.

I adore these pops of color inside the drawers, how fun is that?

A desk fit for a king, I loved the detailing on this desk combined with the chair with a cane backing and leather details. 

Customization is king at Grange since all of the products are made to order and handcrafted in France. Stay tuned for a post about their pristine factory that I visited right outside of Lyon, France. I loved the use of texture of the wallpaper in the back of these built ins. A ton of options at your fingertips, something soft and textural like this or the option to go bolder with a not so traditional finish and punchy pattern. All ideas are welcome at the table!

How fun is this moody and sleek console? The front detailing adds a masculine flair with an edge.

Check back soon for more Maison + Objet finds, a sneak peek into the Grange factory and more! A huge thank you again for Grange for this wonderful opportunity!
