MAISON ET OBJETS MIAMI 2016

It’s funny how life works out sometimes. You never know who you’re going to meet, and what opportunities can come from them. I met two women from Colombia who were working at the Maison & Objet show here in Miami. I spoke with them about things to do here and, recommended a few places for them to check out. I was so honored when they invited me as their guest to explore the show, and see the exhibits being presented there. I had no idea what to expect, and found myself in interior design wonderland! Maison & Objet is a show that brings together interior designers, architects, and property developers from all over the world to showcase the newest designs, trends, and textiles for homes and businesses. As I walked past all the individual booths, I noticed how some people blend into their space as if they were also on display. I found similarities between interior and fashion design like statement pieces, one can wear one to spruce up your look, or have one hanging in your home.  Maison & Objet Summit gave me a different perspective about how a piece of furniture can not only be a functional item, but also a work of art in your home.  Carlos Motta, Brazilian wood furniture designer speaks of his creative process here: https://soundcloud.com/cheriepickett/maison-objet-americas-carlos
