Every September, international designers, buyers and creative professionals flock to Paris to visit Maison et Objet, a professional trade fair dedicated to lifestyle, decoration and design. A flurry of design showcases spills out from the expo halls in Villepinte into the rest of the city with Paris Design Week happening from 4-14 September 2019.
These are the brands and talents we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for in Paris:
