Maison & Objet is an old brand that’s been in cultivation since 1995 and has since outgrown its simple description as a fair for household goods and decorations. The international trade fair has become a natural centre for the interior decoration industry with a strong gravitational pull over taste makers and trend setters to the point it’s not a natural dictator of what’s tasteful for the home and the office. Really, any space meant for people. Maison & Objet is where you’re most likely to get your brand introduced to the larger European market and the event’s portfolio is near limitless. Trade visitors gain access to perfumes, fashion accessories, industrial crafts, furniture, furnishings, office supplies, china tableware, table decoration, cutlery and garden articles. To prove just how integral Maison & Objet is, it’s also where the Designer of the Year is announced.
Maison & Objet occurs with a standard frequency for events of its sectors – twice a year. One fair is in January and the second in September in order to fully capture the wealth of trends in the year. Paris, France welcomes professional visitors at Paris-Nord Villepinte Parc d'Expositions et Centre de Conventions, where they can also attend Scenes d'interieur, maison & objet musées, maison & objet outdoor indoor, and maison & objet projets - Solutions par l'architecture d'intérieur. The fair is the joint venture of SAFI-Salons Français et Internationaux and Reed Expositions France (Siége Social) and editions last for a total of five days. Working hours are from 09:30 am in the morning until 19:00 pm in the afternoon for the first four days and until 18:00 pm on the last day. The Paris-Nord Villepinte Parc d'Expositions is accessible by shuttle bus from Porte Maillot and the Beauvais Airport alongside Air France coaches. Commuters can also rely on the RER train service for a fast connection to the exhibition grounds.
