What Emilie really captured was the look and feel of Maison & Objet. “Whites, beiges, light greys, wood colours and products inspired by nature such as linen and corals were highlighted,” Emilie described. Emilie added this may be because of her certain bias to the natural and handcrafted – making the ‘Métiers d’art’ section of Maison & Objet inspiring for its quality. “We have a passion for detail, for beautiful materials, for their textures and their grains; a passion for beautiful craftsmanship or how the hand of the man can turn a texture into a beautiful object.”
Through Emilie’s camera lens we explore the tones and textures of the fair and six standout objects in 2019 below. These include the Kando Vase made from natural stone and Ciotto in Calacatta marble by Michael Verheyden, Set Forest Handmade Plates in oak, finished with linseed oil By Fuga, Aran Lantern by Guaxs, Oyster Wall Light by Forestier, and the Pyrenean Wool Throw with grey stitching by Midipy.
