My guide to MAISON & OBJET 2018 (Paris)

    Their new space will be designed by Philippe Nigro and therefore, worth visiting.

  • SHOW-ROOM

    ‘SHOWROOM’ is the fair’s main trend theme for January 2018. Two segments: "SHOW-ROOM" Inspirations Space and the "SHOW-ROOM" Café Bookstore are the results of the investigations carried out by Nelly Rodi’s team of consultants (Scenography by Vincent Grégoire). The work of NellyRodi team is always worth seeing.

    You can 'take a rest' on one of the conferences or roundtables, where different topics will be discussed: new trends, new concepts in interior design, future of the industry. (Some of the titles:HOTELS: FROM UNIQUE IDEAS TO UNIQUE DESIGNS,DESIGN 2020: THE INDUSTRY IN THE NEXT DECADE and many others)
