The Parisian establishments participating in Maison&Objet In The City are intended to be experienced sequentially, with an open mind and a keen curiosity. The Paris Maison&Objet circuit offers a unique view of the industries that support French design and decoration. Suppliers, manufacturers, craftspeople, and retailers can all be found on the same circuit as interior designers, architects, and designers who work together to create the ornamental settings we see today. They’ll be visible in their natural habitats. The location and community will enrich their understanding of these transactions. Textile and rug makers, for example, can be found on Place des Victoires and Rue du Mail.
The most prestigious names in interior design congregate in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the design epicentre for two adjacent arrondissements. India Mahdavi, Armani, Atelier Tortil, Christophe Delcourt, Laura Gonzalez, Liaigre, Le Berre-Vevaud, Thierry Lemaire, Maylis, and Charles Tassin can all be found in just a few streets. Designers in the same field will inspire you. Isidore Leroy and Ananbô wallpaper, Atmosphère et Bois parquet flooring, Codimat Collection carpet, Deidre Dyson rugs, Dedar and Rubelli fabrics, Flos lighting, Marie Dââge dishware, and even special V-Zug Studio home equipment.
Each arrondissement in Paris has its own subtle distinction. The Right Bank, especially around the 8th, has a more subdued and private aesthetic than the Left Bank. Gilles et Boissier, architects, will welcome you to their apartment on the top floor of Avenue Montaigne. Charlotte Biltgen will greet visitors in the privacy of a courtyard apartment on Faubourg de Courcelles. A small street in the 17th arrondissement houses the house of Féau, which conceals its collection’s woodwork. On Rue Saint-Honoré, near all the upscale shops, you can find sellers of Haute-Couture home linens such as Frette and Vis-à-vis Paris.
Fashion inside one’s home
It can be tempting for a designer to use fabrics, forms, and patterns to transcend the limitations of the human body and project their aesthetic onto the larger canvas of a complete home. The decor appears to be the next apparent sales channel after fragrances, children’s eyeglasses, and cosmetics lines. Hotel and interior design projects fully express a brand’s distinctive mark. These distinctively sumptuous worlds can be explored as part of the Maison&Objet In The City circuit. Versace Home provides a full range of furniture and accessories. Luxury Living designs manufactures and sells Versace and Dolce&Gabbana collections, which are visible on Avenue George V.
Giorgio Armani, who has excelled in similar projects since 2000, will present his idealised depiction of the Boulevard Saint-Germain house. Armani also implies kitchen design with Dada, the Molteni group, Rubelli upholstery fabrics, and a new bathroom concept with Roca SA. BoffiDePadova will debut its brand-spanning new showroom just a few steps away, at 16 Boulevard Raspail, the former Kenzo location. The Paul Smith Everydaylife collection is spread across two stories and is housed in a Piero Lissoni-designed environment.
Discover hidden workshops in The City that is only accessible to invited guests. Workshops with walls covered in the same repetitive human hand motions passed down through the generations. Those who represent their era, a particular style, or other cultural markers express themselves here. Craftspeople in Paris love nothing more than fusing different eras and cross-pollinating their trades to give their creations a champagne-like fizz.
As an example, consider the house of Féau. Their warehouse in the 17th arrondissement houses the finest collection of antique wood panelling. For several seasons, this Maison has invited The Invisible Collection, the top website for furniture and items from well-known décor companies, to join them. This time, The Invisible Collection has collaborated with Mobilier National to present a selection of furniture purchased by this organisation in 2021 to adorn national castles and homes.
