FEB 9, 2017 | By Ashiesh Shah
For anyone in the interior design industry, January means one thing – Maison & Objet. An essential fixture on any designer’s calendar, the past few editions of Maison & Objet have earned it the reputation of being the ideal place to gauge the direction design is taking for the next year.
I trekked through the eight all encamping halls of Paris’ Parc d’Exposition packed to the brim with brands and designers showing their latest collections.
