There is so much to see at Maison & Objet 2018, but these are some of the playful designs that stood out for us this year.
Munna Design, Portugal
These ottomans by Munna Design swept us away with their flirtatious fringing and velvet cotton fabric. Handmade in Porto, these beauties come in 3 colours: Steel Blue, Antique Pink and Brunswick Green.
Ingrid Sol Leccia, France
Swiss artist and sculptor Ingrid Sol Leccia has us considering throwing out the armchair and replacing it with an indoor swing. Named nOlita this functional sculpture can be used inside or outside. Just be prepared to fight the kids for it.
We just love these Art Deco-inspired, handblown milk glass lampshades from Marseille-based designer Mitri Hourani’s Boboboom set against his canvas fabric.
These bird head-shaped glass stoppers add a touch of humour to these exquisite handblown decanters and flasks from Verglass.

AlvinT x Nikkie Wester, Indonesia/Netherlands
Jakarta-based designer Alvin Tjitrowirjo of brand AlvinT collaborated with Amsterdam-based concept designer Nikkie Wester for this year’s Maison & Objet. The result mixes AlvinT’s signature rattan furniture with Wester’s bold colour and graphic fabrics.
HK Living, Netherlands
There is something so seductive about HK Living’s ’80s-inspired furniture. With their cane-webbing revival, elementary shapes and bright pops of colour, this is the kind of nostalgia that we like to see.
Tánata Cerámica, Spain
Who can resist a pelican-shaped porcelain citrus juicer?
Christina Lundsteen, Demark
Christina Lundsteen’s unique sense of colour makes her cushions irresistible to the eye. Each cushion is made to order and filled with animal-friendly and anti-bacterial down filling.
Valerie Objects, Belgium
The indents on the paired-down Skeleton cutlery set are perfect for hanging on the edge of a cup or bowl.

The wacky imagination of Italy’s Seletti brings us this out-of-this-world scene complete with planet and moon plates, rocket ships and an astronaut vase.
The colour and patina on these metal vases, inspired by the Suprematism modernist movement, from young Ukrainian brand Noom is added by a chemical specialist making each one a unique limited edition piece.
Kapka Enamelware, Turkey
Enamelware is elevated by Turkish brand Kapka. Like HK Living, Kapka’s new collection ‘Flashback’ is inspired by the 80s Memphis style.
