French decoration shows in Paris

End of January were held in Paris Playtime and Maison et Objet decoration shows launching new 2010 trends for our interiors.
At Playtime, dedicated to the world of the children, the ethnic chic, ecological and multiplication of new french brands trends were still valid.
I admired it on the blogosphere and identified, in particular, stands from two little brands
Noix de coc' and les petites emplettes. Their collections offer bedding linens and supplies for kids small rooms. A playful, fresh, bright and colorful 2010 collection for Noix de coc and spontaneous, authentic and natural for Les petites emplettes.
The exhibition demonstrated once again that the decoration for kids grows from year to year and left the pink and blue layettes aside for brightful universe now.

The "path of influence" of the Maison et Objet fair was cut  in three stages: "transculturation," "cooperative," "Hybrid".
For Elizabeth Leriche, Director of her own style office, member of the Maison et Objet Observatory and interrogated by the blog of the show, the mix of cultures was noticeable this year, " with collections resulting from an exchange between western designers and craftsmen, including bringing African culture and know-how. Like the collection of Tord Boontje in collaboration with Senegalese craftsmen for the company Moroso.

"The design of this collection, in which other designers have participated, is certainly European, but the forms are inspired by African culture as textiles. The same goes with the chair by Konstantin Grcic, which uses the expertise of master craftsmen and bamboo and enriches their experience. There is a real exchange",
underlines Elizabeth Leriche ... and impressed we are by the result!
