Maison et Objet 2013 | Mixed Materials


Beautiful details and materials in the stand of all time favorite Rick Owens. Copper plates elegantly used with black iron cast tables. I love this dark and Gothic feeling of the furniture, the heavy iron bowls... I just want the whole set in the picture below..







New copper three-legged stool (there's a matching pillow) I thought Giovanni's bracelets fit beautifully with it... New lights, here on the wall I loved the concrete version.




Beautiful and sober I found the work of Belgian designer Michael Verheijden. Here as well, a combination of materials such as, marble, brass, and various types of wood combined well with each other. On his website more design!

Wood treated in all kind of different ways, giving the impression of the material being metal seems a trend. These handmade tables by Mos Design all have a wood based tabletop treated with high resistance stucco and painted with acrylic colors.











Really beautiful also this round carpet 'Loop' made out of hundreds of small circles and designed by studio Mia Moto via Pulpo. And the small round table below by Stefano Gaggero | Arcade Paris, with the iron base and beautiful black slate stone tabletop. 

More and different materials in an up following post about my visit to Maison et Objet this weekend. And stay tuned also for some beautiful shops I discovered in Parijs!
