Maison et Objet, Septiembre 2013: my favorite picks

This post has nothing to do with my trends spotted at the Maison&Objet, let’s kick off the week with showing you my favorite pieces found at the show and the ones I would have taken home with me. And guess what, it’s almost all about ceramics.


How wonderful are these flower flutes called Contrast by Moniek van den Berghe for Serax? I love the way they hang and become a mobile.


Carla Peters combines clear lines of western design tradition with age-old craft techniques from faraway lands. Her work can be found at Wonderable.

I have seen a couple of those scarf/tea towel holders (or coat hooks?) and believe they are even a fun DIY project. If I find those wooden rings, I’ll try out something similar. Valérie Windeck for Eno Studio.


This really big pot has been a piece of the Asiatides collection. I imagine having it on my future outdoor terrace in between weathered terracotta pots.


I like the sleek design of this towel holder from Menu and could imagine a different use for blankets and magazines in a bedroom or living. And why not hanging some plants?

M&O_faves_Thomas Eick

This small installation of consoles and a vase has been designed by Beathe Reinheimer and Ulrike Rehm for  Thomas Eick.

I love their porcelain beetles too. It is a limited collection of 30 pieces each.

So, that’s quite a mixed selection but that’s why this blog is called Eclectic Trends, right? Any love at first sight you are sharing here with me?

How about some extra inspiration?

  1. Gudy, Thanks for posting your finds for those of use who couldn’t make it to Maison&Objet. I’m loving the colorful, rustic pieces from Asiatides. And those beetles are fabulous!

  2. Mi lista de amores, que se vendrían a mi casa YA!

    Los jarrones de Carla Peters, estas mezclas me chiflan y dan personalidad a cualquier instalación!
    Los anillos con tensores de piel, soy tan fan de cualquier objeto, mueble, …, con piel que no los podría dejar pasar! Igual que los espejos redondos Adnet de Gubi. Me vuelven loca. (
    El gran contenedor surrealista y los bichos de colores de edición limitada para darle color y magia al ambiente!

    Gracias por compartir tus secretitos y tus mundos!



    1. Yo tengo un espejo Hay con “asa” de silicona de color menta en el baño. Pero él de Gubi evidentemente es mucho más bonito. Los bichos son muy curiosos. Con uno ya me basta en la pared…:-)

  3. Stunning!
    I love your photo…I was at Maison&Object too, and I noticed a new Italian design brand, interesting, but I think they use only plexiglass for their products. The name is Silia, did you heard anything about?
