Some major interior design and design trade shows happened recently in Europe and the US such as Maison § Objets (Paris – September 5 to September 9), Decorative Fair (London – 30 September – 5 October), the Boston Design Market (Boston – October 1 to 2) and Vienna Design Week (Vienna – September 26 – October 10).
As French European interior designer who worked in Paris, London, Rome and who now is settled in San Francisco, Isabelle Mc Gee comments on the trends.
1- What are the major changes that you observed in the interior design and design markets recently?
This year, the theme for Maison & Objet was “SHARING” and I believe that this pins really well what’s happening in the design market worldwide currently: new uses and values are reconfiguring our ways of living together, exchanging information, goods, services and experiences.
We are witnessing a dynamic of creative sharing. Creative sharing of experiences, information, words. Key words to describe what’s happening are energy, exchange, ecology, hope…
There is currently a trend for change, a need to project in a positive future, a wish to exchange and at the same time to reveal our identity, to nurture what makes us unique.
