The first celebration, of the design fair Maison & Objet presented the latest trends in furniture, interior design and modern home decoration and essentially it was the perfect place to inspire and get inspiration.
Luxury home could not get more luxurious than this. Fendi, Cavalli, Ibride are all dishing out the uber luxe design for 2013. Design Patakis’s highlights of the French Fair:

The prestigious premium brand, Fendi, exhibited new features at the recent edition of Maison & Objet.
A combination of the wood and sleek sofa handles. Paired with a graphic optical wallpaper.



Created by French designer Philippe Starck for Baccarat, the ‘Marie Coquine‘ standing lamp sets a crystal chandelier into an umbrella suspended in mid-air. ‘Marie Coquine’ is produced in a limited edition set of 120 pieces. Being a big fan of Philippe Starck this piece is not my favourite. Though it seems to me like a bridge between what studio and luxury lighting means.


Ibride has shown its latest creations at the Maison&Objet Fair. The ‘Hidden Chairs‘ were the biggest highlight of the French brand, an optical illusion that marks starting point of this new collection of the Ibride Design Studio.


Benoît Convers re-interprets three icons in the history of seating, by designing chairs which perturb our sense of reference, clash with our sense of logic and flirt with the absurd. And he proposes a strange game around a chair, inverses in relation to its silouhette.


Les Dandys bookshelves collection, by Ibride
Love how the angle reflects the true depth behind the image ahead.  A very neat idea for a modern day library. Each image sits perfectly beween the molding looking like perfect portraits. Mighty sharp looking Rams!


Roberto Cavalli Group have launched the first Roberto Cavalli Home Collection, unique products inspired by theRoberto Cavalli style, fantasy, memories of a journey, a dream and a passion for beauty. We love that animal print its a huge feature in the collection. Not to miss the belt tying the fabric together.


Baxter presented the new collection designed by Paola Navone at Maison & Objet 2013. A sofa with maxi cushions. A sweet 1950s armchair. A bed with padded headboard. A mirror with an ironically art deco feel. Three low organically-shaped tables. The pieces of the collection together form a delicate miscellanea presented in a special setting where each item of furniture, each object, each wall seems to absorb the blue of the sea.



Finally my favourite – Boca Do Lobo’s 
Newton is our truly moment of inspiration, a table completed by spheres and semi spheres that joined together complete this dining table with this exquisite look. Inspired in Newton’s law of gravity, forming an object capable to reflect the sphere attraction as they were joined with their mass, force and energy. Techniques as casting, lacquering or varnishing, are used in this table, with materials as myrtle burl veneer, walnut root veneer, gold plated brass.


Pixel has been painstakingly created with 1088 triangles that complete this piece, with a diversity of finishes never before seen combined – silver leaf, gold leaf, lacquering, and 10 different types of wood leaf. The polished brass base gives Pixel a unique personality, a strong and at the same time sophisticated character. A collectors piece for sure!
