Saint Germain de Prés, in the heart of Paris, is certainly a privileged location and setting for Paris Déco Off. In addition to the “usual” sophisticated and inventive interiors and fittings for stores, studios and showrooms that enliven this district of the VI arrondissement - be they patisseries or perfumeries, art or design galleries, antique shops or furniture and fabric showrooms – there is an infectious and energising explosion of colour and creativity in the collections and showcases during the eighth edition organised by Carole Locatelli and Hughes Charuit jointly with Maison&Objet.
By now an unmissable event featuring publishers and fabric designers, the theme of this edition, Paris en couleurs (Paris in colour), has been interpreted in a passionate and exciting way by more than 100 French and international brands specialising in wallpaper, carpets and curtains, textiles for furniture and walls, linen for the home and cushions.
Real masters in a kind of interior decoration that has emerged as never before and is fertile terrain for creativity now have an embarrassment of choice in materials and processing, the composition of the texture and the combination of colours, drawing up material and visual patterns that stand as a tribute to the workmanship and versatility of the sector and a sophisticated and vivid paean of praise to invention and nature. The colour, monochrome or an infinite variety of combinations and mixtures, shared the stage, and the many settings, with the natural world: plants, flowers, animals and landscapes, often with an exotic inspiration.
