From 18-22 January 2019, Maison et Objet Paris returns for another enticing edition at Paris Nord Villepinte and design enthusiasts can expect to see a series of innovative features and high-quality design. Each year, the lifestyle and design trade show selects a particular inspirations theme and, in 2019, it will be all about “Excuse My French”. Even though the focus of the theme isn’t about mirrors, our team found it necessary to share this incredible theme.
Vincent Grégoire from NellyRodi will once again oversee this highly inspiring space. The designer has analysed the latest consumer trends and sociological phenomena and has encapsulated them in a theme, it may seem that it has a humorous character but it actually looks seriously upon the re-emergence of the country of Molière on the international scene. According to Vincent Grégoire from NellyRodi, everything revolving Frapossessesess a certain je ne sais quoi — that indescribable Gallic quality that exudes an easy allure, an effortlessly chic and a distinctive sense of style.
“There’s a renewed curiosity about the French abroad, a sort of fascination at the moment. In a world where things are becoming standardized, people are looking for something different. When I’m abroad, I’m always told that we have a certain je ne sais quoi, an effortless chic, something you don’t find anywhere else.” – Vincent Gregoire.

Foreign visitors will be given the opportunity to discover new French brands and designers, while others will better understand how to take full advantage of the Made in France phenomenon.
France has long been a worldwide reference for the arts, fashion, design and lifestyle. For many, it is quite simply the epitome of elegance. Grégoire pinpoints a number of factors responsible for the country’s new-found resurgence. “A nouvelle vague” and “Classic with a Twist” will be two of the main features of the theme. The first one shakes up traditional French chicness by injecting inspirations from elsewhere in a new mood of fusion and mix ‘n’ match whereas the second one brings a typical French note of irreverence and daringness as well as quirkiness and extravagance.
This awe-inspiring theme will be brought to life at M&O at the Trend Forum, a 250 sq. m space in Hall 7 that will present a selection of products embodying the essence of the new French scene. Its theatrical decor will be inspired by the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, but with a little impertinence mixed in. A small truck where you will be able to find the trend mook for sale will be parked in the middle of it and a number of contemporary items will deliberately contrast with the classical setting.
