MAISON&OBJET PARIS has been around since 1995 as the international trade fair for the lifestyle, decoration and design sector, and today more than ever it has become the not-to-be-missed event for industry professionals seeking clever design solutions to help attract and retain customers.
Nowadays, anyone who steps through the door of a café, hotel or restaurant is looking for so much more than tasty food or a comfortable place to stay. Today’s customers are demanding, ultra-connected and in-creasingly aware of how their surroundings look, even if they’re just there to grab a quick coffee! They’re keen to explore new vibes and discover “Instagrammable” venues offering one-of-a-kind experiences that don’t just satisfy their taste buds but stimulate every single sense.
MAISON&OBJET, the lifestyle and hospitality trade fair
MAISON&OBJET showcases a vast range of solutions that can help hospitality professionals give the 2.0 customer exactly what they want by catering to the industry’s changing needs. Some 4,000 such professionals, including 30% from overseas, are, indeed, already regulars at the event. Extremely satisfied with what the trade fair has to offer, they return year after year, with no fewer than 85% recommending the event to others.
Structured around key themes, the event showcases a myriad of brands that are absolute musts across the entire hospitality sector. The “Forever” (timeless classics), “Unique & Eclectic” (championing global creativity), and “Today” (a distillation of the spirit of our times) zones notably attract café owners, hoteliers and restaurateurs, inviting them to cast their eye over a selection of the very latest furnishings and design solutions from international designers.
Besides the big-name manufacturers and makers that exhibit at every edition alongside a multitude of smaller scale craftsmen and artisans, nu-merous up-and-coming talents also emerge each year.
On top of that, MAISON&OBJET also dedicates specific zones to the art of hospitality. The Cook & Share zone gives visitors the lowdown on the latest eating trends. Food is constantly evolving, and from cookware to tableware hundreds of brands are helping us reinvent the way we eat, with their designs providing endless inspiration for restaurateurs, head chefs and baristas.
Another key theme for the hotel and restaurant trade: Home Linen, which shines the spotlight on the latest textile trends. Towels, bed linen, table linen, pillows, upholstery, curtains… MAISON&OBJET showcases a thoroughly unique selection whose diversity and quality are second to none.
an edition tailored to hoteliers and restaurateurs
The upcoming edition of MAISON&OBJET PARIS is set to celebrate the art of hospitality, sharing and savouring. The perfect opportunity for industry professionals to explore new concepts, make new contacts and discover thousands of brands.
Who better to fly the flag for this edition than Designer of the Year, Laura Gonzalez, who’ll be staging a café area in Hall 7? This young architect with inexhaustible creative flair has already put her design stamp on a whole host of hotels and restaurants, including Le Relais Christine, 86 Champs, Manko, Noto and Lapérouse, making her one of the sector’s go-to names.
