Maison et Object: "Le Planning"

This year's muse......Spring 2010


There will be a lot of blogging on this, the European trade market on home fashion and decor.in Paris, France, MAISON & OBJECT.
Some will be from designers whose primary interests differ from mine. So as to not be redundant, Beadboard will focus on how what I see presented at this huge market translates into your world and home. As a design shopgirl,my considerations trickle down to my customers/readers. Will they "Get" a certain look? Is it duplicated in the US? Is is saleable, the quality there, a good value? Will the look be here down the road a few years? Is it comfortable livable and WOW???
WILL I RUN INTO GERARD DEPARDIEU AT THE SAME RESTAURANT I DID LAST YEAR??!!

This will consist of a series of provacative and entertaining series of blogs on the experiences of one design shopgirl and her seemingly French partner in crime, Robespierre,
who actually did see
Monsieur Depardieu at a restaurant in the Marais that we frequent, last year.
That being said, we are still in Paris gathering info for you and will be back soon..


A Bientot....

  8. I can't wait to see if you were a gangster and you took " forbidden" photos from M & O ...
    As an antiques dealer working with my parents ( interiors decorators ) what I saw is that new companies copy antiques , our interior homes try to look old , antiques , home with atmosphere ..I can't wait to see your point of view

  9. It´ll be so interesting, Maryanne. I wish you happen to be with G.Depardieu again or perhaps you seat right by Catherine Deneuve and tell us how is she like in person.
    Muchos cariños,

  10. Hi Maryanne,

    Great post and look forward to your trends and insight, from Paris.
    When we were in Paris, we had a wonderful evening and dinner at Gerald Depardieu's Restaurant.
    Unfortunately we never got to see him.

    Happy weekend
    Carolyn
