What will your interior look like in the coming year? The Maison & Objet show has revealed the lifestyle materials that are set to invade interior design shops and e-boutiques led by designers with a single goal in mind : highlighting authenticity for more well-being in everyday life.
The latest 2019 new releases have been designed with an ecological and artisanal approach to better meet the need for refinement and timelessness. In the spotlight are designs that are respectful of the environment and ethics and completely value the natural, recycled and untreated materials resulting in a 100% cocooning ambience.
Symbol of sustainable development, wood is the preferred material to bring cachet to your decoration, especially in its untreated version. Coffee table, sideboard, coffee table, stool and lamp stand - all effectively capture the beauty of the natural material and are skillfully used to playfully experiment with achieving the most aesthetic contrasts. Praised for its solidity and timeless design, raw wood adds depth and charm in every room up to the nursery.
Seagrass, cotton, linen, wool or cashmere slip from the kitchen to the living room to create a traditional atmosphere so sought after today. The materials of our childhood are associated with nostalgia in a contemporary style to sublimate all the interiors.
Recycled materials use viscose, bamboo and even seaweed for avant-garde and trendy textures. Functional and fun, they give a second life to materials made from waste. Thus, plastic and metal are recovered to be transformed into furniture, armchairs, lighting and unique vases. Everything is preserved and the smallest flaw is regarded as a marker of quality.
Caning, traditional weaving technique is making a comeback, driven by the desire to focus on the hand-made. Seating, chandeliers, garden furniture and laundry baskets are created from rattan, bamboo and wicker, their retro side inextricably entwined with a bohemian-chic design. Even more original, perforated metal cane blows a wind of fantasy throughout the house, with an ultra modern lifestyle.
Luxurious and soft, velvet warms the winter by covering sofas, beanbags and cushions and giving them a decidedly vintage style. Smooth or ribbed, this flagship material from the '70s also adorns lamps to make our interiors even snugger. Unfaithful to original colours now considered a little too classic, the new generation of velvet is reinvented in vivid and pastel shades, printed geometric patterns and animal fantasy.
