Our design team took a trip to Paris last week for the annual Paris Design Week. We wasted no time immersing ourselves in the vibrant creative scene, eagerly absorbing every ounce of inspiration. Join us as we guide you through the unforgettable highlights of our trip…
GP & J Baker Showroom
We started our trip off at the GP & J Baker Showroom. We have been tirelessly crafting a special collaboration with GP&J Baker. The collection seamlessly blends Kit’s signature, eclectic and colourful style with GP & J Baker’s rich heritage. Comprising intriguing, colourful new prints, wallpapers, artisanal stripes, and a fabulous plain linen. For those fortunate enough to have been in Paris, you may have caught a glimpse of this exciting venture in their showroom. For those who missed it, fear not, the official launch for the collection will be in early March. Stay tuned for more updates on this eagerly anticipated collaboration.
We then went on to the bustling stalls of the legendary Porte de Clignancourt Antique Market and the quaint antique boutiques nestled in Village St. Paul. Each corner we turned revealed a treasure trove of vintage delights, with every item whispering stories of years gone by. These remarkable discoveries ignited our creative spark, serving as the muse for our upcoming projects.
At the heart of Paris Design Week, Deco Off took centrestage, captivating attendees with its vibrant energy. Patrick Frey, Head of Pierre Frey, unveiled the latest Pierre Frey Collections at the magnificent Theatre des Varietes, a historic gem steeped in theatrical charm. The new additions to their collections dazzled us with their trademark colourful and bold designs, further solidifying Pierre Frey’s reputation as a beacon of creativity and innovation in the world of design.
Our visit to the MindTheGap showroom was nothing short of a vibrant explosion of colour and pattern. We were delighted to explore the mesmerising array of wallpapers, including the recent collaboration with Minnie Kemp.
A striking patterned fabric showcased in the window of the WIND showroom at Deco Off caught our eye. Intrigued by their vibrant embroidery and printed designs, our design team found themselves irresistibly drawn inside. WIND’s offerings are precisely the kind of artistic expression that ignites our creativity and fuels our passion for innovative design.
Maison et Objet
Maison et Objet exceeded our expectations once again. Our team were amazed by the array of offerings, from quirky table lamps to exquisite rugs and accessories. With keen eyes, we scoured the exhibits for new items and emerging designers that could inspire future projects.
We were thrilled to see the work of gifted French artist, Caroline Perrin who we discovered last year. Her exquisite shell work now embellishes our team’s projects with its beauty. Stay tuned for an exciting reveal in this year’s residential project in the south of France – a one-of-a-kind shell grotto design collaboratively crafted with Caroline.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our round up of Paris Design Week and feel inspired by our creative discoveries!
