Maison et Objet 2008 – Accessories

One of the big trends I noticed at Maison et Objet was the presence of white. I have to admit that I love the clean, bleached, feeling of this look. Two of my favorite stands were Guadarte from Spain and Woestijnroos BVBA – WR Collection – from Belgium. The bust above – surrounded by soft greens by WR Collection was a real stunner.

I wanted to move right into the Guadarte booth – with it’s washed whites and grays, with subtle hints of sea glass and verdigris greens. To me, this look was so calming.

The WR Collection stand was notable for its styling and lighting of their accessories and collections.

I’m still not a fan of mounted heads, but I loved the lighting on this wall and the reflection of the chandelier.

So, as I said previously, we saw a lot of oversize accessories at the show. Not a terribly new trend, but pretty none the less.
