January 2018’s theme is “Show-room”, a theme selected by the MAISON&OBJET Observatory and one that certainly says a lot about the revolution in consumer behaviour in all things décor.
At each edition, the Inspirations’ theme provides an opportunity to investigate a strong new trend that gives an idea of what’s to come trendwise. In January, Vincent Grégoire, from NellyRodi, will be analysing the “SHOW-ROOM” theme in both the Inspirations Book and with a special space at the trade show itself.
In our digital times, a whole world of lifestyles is just a click away. Social networks do the spadework, clearing the ground leaving only objects of desire as the well-honed online consumer becomes the artistic director and designer of his/her interior. Homemakers indulge in a form of decorative exhibitionism and with transparency in every shape, size and form showcase their significant objects in display cases or on shelves. Walls show off these new collectors’ juxtaposed accumulation of pictures, or their modern-day take on decorative plates; still lifes are arranged as if posing to have their photo taken, ready to be posted on Instagram; and light transforms volumes in a dramatic and theatrical approach to interiors that brings a touch of magic back into everyday life.
