Paris Deco Off 24

Full of Inspirations and Colours directly from Paris

Every January, Paris becomes the capital of the world of interior, and this year, I flew over to be part of two exciting events: Maison & Objet, a large trade fair and Paris Deco Off, an event about the latest in textile, art and furniture showcasing the latest collections by our leading suppliers.

Travelling is good for creativity and invigorating for the mind; I take this quote to heart as it brings me an enormous boost in creativity and energy to run my business.

HANDCRAFTED FURNITURE

A big part of running my business is to have an excellent team of tradesmen who can bring my vision to life when designing interiors for my clients.

It was interesting to see how the French government support those artisans and trade professionals to keep their trade viable. I was amazed at how much knowledge these artisans and professionals have; it’s nice to see how their trades are celebrated, showing their “savoir-faire” through these events.

Having the same amount of government support here in Australia would be great to keep the manufacturing and know-how.

Moissonnier, a renowned craft-maker of luxurious period furniture, has given a new twist to this handcrafted commode by using the Japanese technique of “shou sugi ban”, which involves charring the wood using a torch. This unique piece exudes an authentic charm that can add a focal point to any interior.

Guided by the Colourful Lampshades

The streets of Paris are decorated with oversized pendant lights created using fabrics from textile suppliers. Oversized armchairs are also placed in public spaces and look charming when dusted with snow.

THE BEST OF PARIS DESIGN & DECORATION

FABRICS TO DIE FOR

A dream of textiles and interiors were showcased in incredibly beautiful showrooms throughout Paris; it was magical to see these splendid details whether embroidered, printed or a mix of different fabrics woven to create a tactile texture.

COLOURS

The rich colours transport you from Africa to South America, a voyage of colours and patterns.

We can’t wait to create beautiful upholstered furniture, curtains and blinds for our projects.

FURNITURE

ROUNDED CURVE

The shape of sofas and armchairs have soft, enveloping curved forms, upholstered with rich fabric, like wrapping your body with a warm shawl.

MIXING DIFFERENT STYLE

COMFORT IS A MUST

“In 2024, your home will be a place of comfort and relaxation. You can mix different period styles, like this low-back modern sofa paired with these ornate Art Deco-style lights. I particularly love how the cushions add a country feel, while the jute material provides a textural element.”

WINTER IN PARIS

FIVE DAYS OF ART, DESIGN AND GOOD FOOD

During my five-day trip to Paris, I visited some of my favourite museums, including the Musee d’Orsay, the Museum du Luxembourg, the Museum des Arts Decoratifs, and the Centre Pompidou. These museums showcased various art and design, from modern to antiquity and fashion. I also found time to stock up on paint and brushes at Sennelier, an old art supplies shop along the Seine River with knowledge and character. Overall, the trip was refreshing and left me feeling reinvigorated and ready to design comfortable interiors for our clients.
