Paris Déco Off 2018. The textil show for interior decoration.
Like usual we visited Paris Déco Off, a unique show of home fabrics that we could not really miss. More than 115 companies presented the new collections in their showrooms and stores in the heart of the French capital.
On the Rive Gauche in Saint-Germain-des-Près , between the Rue Jacob and Rue de la Seine, we visited more than 60 showrooms. Then we passed to the Rive droite, to the Palais Royal area.
Among the most significant trends of this year, we noticed in particular brilliantly colored fabrics, and the elegant “geo” motifs of the the historical companies, such as Pierre Frey and Nobilis.
Together with French and British companies, we visited the attractive stores of Alessandro Bini and Decortex, both based in Florence.
We had the chance to select some of their beautiful new items that we will show at the Salone del Mobile 2018 in Milan.
A charity event took place at the Hotel Drouot: for the first time each exhibitor gave a free item to the Alzheimer French Foundation that sold them in the hotel lounge.
We had the pleasure to attend an interesting conference of the designer and writer Jean-Gabriel Causse on the theme of colors and their perceptions.
We concluded our pleasant tour in Paris at the Saturday cocktail party in rue du Mail. Just amazing!
