Awesome Products from Maison et Objet

Posted on January 21 2013

 Despite the weather forecast over the weekend we donned our coats and prayed for safe and reliable flights from London to Paris and back again to visit arguably the most fashionable product showcase in the world; Maison et Objet.



The city was white, possibly the most romantic I’ve seen Paris, however there was no time to visit Pont Nerf as we were off to Paris-Nord, Villepinte to see the latest home and gifts from continental Europe. As always the show was huge, over 8 halls of products from the weird and wonderful to the smart and sophisticated.



This first of three entries on the show over the coming week, this post will focus on The Most Awesome Products (in Uberstar’s humble opinion) which we saw at the show; enjoy.

First up is this luxurious gentleman's Foosball table. Handcrafted in solid wood, with glass 'pitch' and shiny metal poles give this table the smartest look we've ever seen. Perfect for the man that has everything and will inevitably end up in his 200ft yacht. Available from Tekell for $18,500.

In at number two we have these unique but extremely beautiful wooden vase trunks. Disused and sick trees are imported from Argentina to Italy, where Nadia and her brother have set up a factory that hollows the trunks out finishes them to create stunning natural plant pots. We love the recycled element of the production, plus the fact that each plant pot is unique. We've never been to Argentina before, but after seeing these we have to confirm they have fabulous looking plant life.  

Next up as we walked down the halls we saw this modern range of living room furniture. Based on the rock 'n' roll look of protective amp and hipster photography travel cases but with modern rustic solid oak panels makes this one of our most awesome products of the show. 

We loved these adorable Pooch Lights (not sure if this is their official name, but if it isn't it should be!). Simple, clean, stylish and won't make a mess of your carpet. Perfect for any Designer's office. 

Designed in Belgium, Fresh*r  is made to keep your food and drinks hot or cool in style. Comprised of a shockproof core, weatherproof canvas and a wooden top, Fresh*r will survive any situation. Designed for temperatures from -40 to 120°C, the 50-litre box is made out of EPP closed cell foam. It is very sturdy and designed to be used as a seat or as a small table. Outdoors or in the garden, Fresh*r will keep your picnic and beverages at just the right temperature. Available direct from Trade Winds

Stay tuned during the week for more products from the show, including the craziest products on display and the top products we would buy.

    Those ‘pooch lights’ are adorable. I saw them this year in Paris and I am kicking myself for not getting one. I really want one for my boyfriend, any idea where to find them online?
