Maison & Objet Trends by Stephanie Rammeloo


Stephanie Rammeloo visited the Salon Maison et Objet 2010 and shares with us her finds today…

Stacking and layering ::  It is a bit like the fairytale The Princess and the Pea, stack some mattresses on top of each other, for a soft, soft new way of sitting or resting. Possibly inspired by the pile of mattresses Dutch designer Richard Hutten showed in Milan in 2008.


You can see it translated in a way that is close to his design with a lot of colorful mattresses, or, for a more sophisticated look by Desio: mattresses in soft greys, combined with grey pastels. 


Colors :: Another big thing in interior design as well as fashion, is Color. Pastels, nudes and greys are combined with more bright, bold, almost fluorescent colors.


This nice stack of plates by Reichenbach shows a good overview of one another, more muted color theme: nice, dark, powdery pastels with a touch of yellow and lighter tones. Lovely porcelain cutlery, also.


Patchwork & ethnic chic :: these two trends I saw combined in this beautiful rug or wall decoration. Ceannis gives the patchwork-trend a try as well with their pillows.

Dear Stephanie thank you very much for showing us your beautiful home this week and sharing with us your impressions and finds from Mison et Objet 2010. Here you can find Stephanie her blog that I hope she will frequently update in the near future 🙂

    That quilt is crazy cool. I mean like insane- Where are those textiles from? I covet this quilt.


    Next year I will make it to Paris for Maison! Love the first photos – the stacked mattresses and the pendant light are fabulous!
