Back from Paris means time for our annual ‘Best of Paris Deco Off’. This year we skipped the Maison et Objet fair so we could focus even more on all the showrooms and their new inspirations; we’re such lucky devils! Start scrolling down and experience our highlights of 2017, starting with Karin Sajo’s beautiful new fabrics.
Her love for fabrics was already obvious since her career in fashion started in 1993 for Hermès and later on Dior. A fresh and young look on elegant patterns, beautiful textures and colourful combinations is what we love about her style. This new collection is inspired by Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti, which you can discover in her mood board below.
This year, Fortuny presented their new fabric collections at the Italian embassy, great location! Surrounded by historical ornaments and details, this new ‘Crossroads’ collection was a perfect addition. If you look deeper, these classic fabrics are even more beautiful when combining with contemporary styles.
A very warm welcome by the Rubelli team, made us even more exciting to check the new fabrics of 2017, and not for nothing! Stunning new designs, all in typical Rubelli style and with the high quality we are used from them. We loved the petrol blue silk wallpaper below, although it was hard to take a good picture of it!
This Italian brand always hits the right spot, beautiful elegant fabrics that never look boring together. If you are walking around in their showroom, you wish to have it all. Amazing classic velvets and silks with contemporary patterns, love it!
Also this year we hopped into Declercq’s atelier, which feels like a candy shop with all the little tassels and trimmings! A tread to visit and especially when you walk into the archives downstairs. There are no words to describe, just don’t forget to visit them next year.
Ancien & Moderne Pop-up Showroom
Ancien & Moderne was a pop-up showroom decorated in collaboration with many designers like; Fromental, Justin van Breda, Timothy Corrigan, Michelle Nussbaumer, Alex Papachristidis, Philippe Berry and more. Great atmosphere, exotic vibrant colours and lovely combinations.
This brand from the UK is actually a lighting company, one of the few furniture showrooms at the Paris Deco Off! A very sophisticated brand, with lots of brass and ceramic finishes. Got inspired by their beautiful inspiration wall.
One of the most impressive archives you’ve ever seen: Prelle fabrics. It’s a tread to be in their showroom and go through all their collections: from historical woven to traditional silks and elegant contemporary fabrics. We love Prelle’s authenticity and taste for excellent design!
On our second day we visited the great British company: De Gournay. One of their artists was painting a wallpaper live, such a delicate craftsmanship that always intrigues us. There is nothing more beautiful than their hand-painted sceneries.
Gaston y Daniela
Gaston y Daniela was popping out with their fun parots, displayed at the entrance of their pop-up showroom. Downstairs we discovered the beautiful screen at the right picture below, upholstered in a black yellow ikat fabric.
The Deco Off was definitly worth a visit this year; beautiful new colours, patterns and techniques! We absolutely loved it, and don’t forget about the Marché Aux Puces in St. Ouen for spotting amazing antiques, hot new restaurant Loulou, L’Hotel designed by Jacques Garcia and enjoying all the historical French architecture around St. Germain.
