Each year I visit a number of design shows like High Point, Dallas Market and the New York Gift Show to scout out new furniture and accessories for my design projects. Two weeks ago, I was able to add a new show to my list – Maison & Objet Miami.
Maison & Objet is the premier European design show that happens in Paris in the Spring and Fall. I have always wanted to go to the show, so when I found out that M&O would be coming to Miami this year, I decided to make the trip and check it out for myself.
The show did not disappoint. Not only was it great to connect in person with a number of our existing vendors and catch up, but I found some elegant and fun new-to-me European brands as well. Below, I have selected a few of my favorite things from the show. I noticed a bunch of chic, modern furniture from Portugal, gorgeous embossed leathers from Italy, beautiful linens from Turkey and streamlined, elegant tabletop pieces from France.
I had so much fun at M&O Miami and all the vendors told me the Paris show is 5 times larger, so Paris will definitely be on my list for the coming year!
