Outdoor Living Inspiration at Maison & Objet

outdoor living inspiration in paris


Solus Decor took the opportunity to visit the world renowned show in Paris and gain some outdoor living inspiration from the wealth of exhibitors.


Every year in January Paris becomes a hub for designers, architects and suppliers for commercial and residential design as they descend on the beautiful city of Paris for the Maison & Objet trade show held at the Parc des Exposition in Villepinte.  The exhibition runs for 5 days and given the scale many would say that you need full 5 days to ensure you don’t miss out.  For the duration of the 5 days Parc Des Exposition becomes home to more than 3,000 exhibitors making it a perfect melting pot of designers and brands from around the world to meet and connect.



We visited the world renowned Maison & Objet in Paris for inspiration and research, taking a look at what’s going on in the Design world for 2017. We have put together a selection of our highlights from the world of outdoor living that we discovered at the show.


Above is a small selection of the great furniture that can be used for both the interior and exterior by the Danish brand; Sika Design. They had a great selection of furniture, which is both stylish and practical for the indoor/outdoor lifestyle and in doing so create the perfect cohesion between the interior and exterior.  The Parisian style cafe chairs were of course a big hit!


Outdoor Living Inspiration


The Exteta stand was a big draw at the show with their exceptional stand, which created an inviting space for visitors to relax.  Already familiar with the Italian brand it was a great opportunity to see their new collections and look at their outdoor living concepts.  To see more of the wonderful Exteta Range click here 


Concrete Design and Inspiration


Of course we couldn’t miss the opportunity to see what others are doing with concrete so we took the opportunity to gain some inspiration from others who value the concepts of concrete as much as we do at Solus Decor with our hand cast concrete fire and water features.  Here are our some of our favourites from the show featuring lighting by Opjet Paris and Kast Concrete Basins.




While in Paris we couldn’t resist exploring one of their own great outdoor spaces at Parc des Buttes Chaumont, featuring great elements of water and landscaping.
