Theme of January 2018
First of all, every Maison&Objet edition has a different theme. Since few years, the fair has been choosing different themes as Silence (2017), Confort Zone (2017) and Wild (2016)… Last week on their website, Maison&Objet announces the theme!
“January 2018’s theme is “Show-room”, a theme selected by the MAISON&OBJET Observatory and one that certainly says a lot about the revolution in consumer behaviour in all things décor.
At each edition, the Inspirations’ theme provides an opportunity to investigate a strong new trend that gives an idea of what’s to come trendwise. In January, Vincent Grégoire, from NellyRodi, will be analysing the “SHOW–ROOM” theme in both the Inspirations Book and with a special space at the trade show itself.
In our digital times, a whole world of lifestyles is just a click away. The well-honed online consumer becomes the artistic director and designer of his/her interior and social networks do the spadework, clearing the ground and only leaving objects of desire. Homemakers indulge in a form of decorative exhibitionism and, with transparency in every shape, size and form, showcase their significant objects in display cases or on shelves. Walls show off these new collectors’ juxtaposed accumulation of pictures, or their modern-day take on decorative plates; still lifes are arranged as if posing to have their photo taken ready to be posted on Instagram; and light transforms volumes in a dramatic and theatrical approach to interiors that brings a touch of magic back into everyday life.
