Maison & Objet January 2024

Urban Jungle Bloggers - Maison&Objet 2024 Tech Eden

Plants and interiors are what makes our hearts beat faster. We’re always on the lookout for what’s new in green decor, how plants inspire new technologies, materials and designs. That’s exactly what next month’s Maison&Objet is all about: the fair will show a revitalized future that combines technology and nature “TECH EDEN”. We have been at Maison&Objet many times (see  HERE and HERE), but from January 18-22 2024, they are launching a new program called “WHAT’S NEW? In Retail”. This helps professionals (independent boutiques, concept stores, distributors, department stores) to develop their business through workshops and merchandising solutions. Greenery, organic shapes, natural materials and well-being are obviously part of these “solutions” and we are excited to discover more next month.

Below you can read more about this new program at Maison&Objet, why, where, what, how. And get your tickets HERE. Will we see you in January?

WHAT’S NEW? In Retail

From January 18th to 22nd, 2024, at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, Maison&Objet’s “WHAT’S NEW? In Retail” program brings something new to the more than 30.000 shops that visit the show each season. Mélanie Leroy, Managing Director of SAFI has been crafting an innovative space to tackle the retail challenges head-on and make it a practical hub for the industry. Think of a real concept store space where you can learn from experts on how to improve the impact of the shop window, or make your shop more like a place where people actually want to hang out. Because when we go out to shop for interior decor, design, gifts or plants, we tend to combine it with some coffee & cake, meet up with friends, snap some Stories for Instagram, maybe even stay to work a little bit, or sign up for a wellness treatment. We want to feel good where we shop and stay a little longer: we crave true connections, whether it’s online or physical. It’s not about filling up our cart and checkout at the cash register anymore. How do you turn your shop into that kind of place where people feel good?

That’s exactly what you’ll learn more about during the workshops that are part of this new program: “WHAT’S NEW? In Retail” will be blurring the lines between categories to create spaces that feel natural, intuitive and welcoming to all. They also dive in deep into the “retail nitty-gritty” and provide ideas and tips to spice up your store and ride those industry changes.

For the space, at the entrance to Halls 3 and 4, Maison&Objet worked with two major contributors:

François Delclaux, a foresight expert, for the storytelling of the space and the selection of new products,
BETC Design, a strategic consulting agency, for structuring the customer journey and effective merchandising.
“Maison&Objet is offering us an incredible playground and a unique way of collaborating on the section’s design: the expertise of François DELCLAUX on stylistic trends, new uses and new products, and BETC Design on the prefiguration of a real place to stimulate sales” explains Christophe Pradère, founder and CEO of BETC Design.

At the heart of this space, “coaching workshops” are planned throughout the 5 days of the show to help shops implement practical and efficient solutions within your own point(s) of sale. Think of Maison&Objet like a booster shot for you as a retailer. It’s not just about finding new stuff; it’s about getting advice, finding solutions, and staying ahead of the game.

WHAT’S NEW ? IN RETAIL – A WHOLE CONCEPT

“This space is inspired by the dynamics seen in South Korea and Mexico, for example, with their effective multi-functional and multi-category spaces in concept stores, a major category for our visitors”, explains Mélanie Leroy, General Manager of SAFI.

A fluidity of use as conceptualised by François Delclaux in his décor: “Fluidity also in objects, shapes, materials and surfaces: traditional categories fade away and become less radical, boundaries less clear-cut. The design combines an enduring brutalism in which the material imposes the form, with flexible, organic, and silent forms, and finally with gentle, non-intrusive technology. The home becomes intuitive and inclusive”.

Christophe Pradère (BETC Design) adds: “It’s a real retail experience. We’ve incorporated what we call ‘moments’ to showcase the products, with the creation of ‘attack’ furniture, display units and an exportable kiosk, for example. To complement and enhance their offering, we want to give shops the idea that the products on display are relevant to their space.”

Of course this will all align with this year’s theme of Maison&Objet: TECH EDEN: where nature and cutting-edge technology combine. We as customers seek a more serene world, with a focus on comfort and well-being. You as a retailer will experience this tranquility through organic shapes, natural materials, soft pastels, and shimmering reflections. Obviously greenery is part of this!

COACHING WORKSHOPS AND CONFERENCES TO HELP RETAILERS FIND PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS 

With 25 workshops on the agenda, you will be able to receive insights on the upcoming changes of your business industry and be supported on the promotion or staging of your store(s).

Maison&Objet selected some of the most relevant experts to lead these coaching workshops and address both strategic and inspiring topics, including:

“From storytelling to storyliving” by Christophe Pradère (BETC Design)
“Merchandising is not just visual!” by Donatienne Richard (trainer)
“How to integrate nature into your shop in an inventive way?” by Nicolas Rebet (Retailoscope)
“Developing your brand quickly via TikTok, the video of success” by Tony Piloseno (Tonester Paints)

AND TO GO FURTHER: FOCUS ON A THRIVING WELLNESS MARKET

During the last Maison&Objet show The Wellbeing Experience was launched at the show and in January this will make a return: the wellness market is a booming market with a projected global growth of 9.9% per year over the next 5 years (according to the Global Wellness Institute). The last edition was very well received, so again in January you can immerge in this space and experience a selection of new products for personal and home well-being, as well as workshops to learn new ways of relaxing and finding balance.

This is a unique opportunity for retailers to experience a sensory and holistic journey in a promising market. The offering is designed in collaboration with the American trend office Fashion Snoops and the Retail & Well-being consultant Marina Musset (from concept store La Seinographe).

You can find the Well-being&Beauty sector in Hall 3 in January.

World of Plants for USM Haller – A Vintage Berlin Home

Urban Jungle Bloggers - USM Haller World of plants #urbanjunglebloggers

Today we want to take you on another home story for our ‘A World of Plants for USM Haller’ campaign. We have taken you on a tour of a green home office in Berlin, a southern French hallway design, and now we want to show you a collected Berlin home with strong vintage vibes – of course equipped with the new USM plant shelves.

Urban Jungle Bloggers - USM Haller World of plants #urbanjunglebloggers

Some of you might recognize Theo from our Plant Tribe book – after all, she is a real plant lover just like us. She also loves interior styling – with a special knack for collected, vintage pieces. Her Berlin apartment is a treasure trove with vintage furniture, natural materials, ceramics, art, books, tactile surfaces. And right there, in this vintage home, a beautiful new USM shelf found its place – with two dedicated plant shelf units and the integrated USM Haller E light panels.

Urban Jungle Bloggers - USM Haller World of plants #urbanjunglebloggers

Theo opted for a almost ceiling high USM shelf consisting of three 50cm wide units. Her color of choice is the soft beige which perfectly accentuates the natural color palette in her home. What we love in particular in this home story is that it showcases how a USM shelf fits in any kind of interior style – even a more vintage inspired home. Not to mention that the integrated plant pots and plants do the trick here, too.

Slowly welcome a new day of opportunities and changes, because life is in constant flux. Observe the changes in your plants and embrace the changes in your life. This will be beneficial for your plants, too, as they will enjoy the daily moment of your presence.

Sleeping with Plants

Urban Jungle Bloggers - Sleeping with Plants #urbanjunglebloggers #bedroom #houseplants

Every time we post a picture on Instagram of a beautiful bedroom filled with plants, we get some concerned comments from people that believe sleeping in a bedroom with plants is not healthy. We don’t agree with them and here is why: plants respire as humans do, emitting carbon dioxide at night as a reverse response to photosynthesis and converting carbon dioxide to oxygen during the day. Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are often confused. The names sound the same, they both are colorless and odorless gases, and at high concentrations, both can be deadly. In small amounts carbon dioxide is relatively harmless, while carbon monoxide is extremely dangerous. Maybe that’s where the confusion arises?

Urban Jungle Bloggers - Sleeping with Plants #urbanjunglebloggers #bedroom #houseplants

Good to know, is that the amount of CO2 most plants produce at night is far less than humans and pets do. You could even say that sleeping with someone, in the same room or bed is less healthy (oxygen-wise) than sleeping in a bedroom filled with plants

The benefits of plants at home in general and in a bedroom in particular are countless. They make a room look more alive and your bedside table brighter. As you know if you read our #urbanjunglebook is that plants help to purify the air, by filtering indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and benzene. There is an entire Clean Air Study by the NASA with proven facts – have a look here.  Also, taking care of your plants can help you wind down after a busy day. There are even studies that proove that by simply touching a plant’s leaf for 2 minutes, you reduce your stress levels! For a healthy bedroom climate, don’t count on plants alone: regular ventilation, fresh bed linen, a comfortable mattress and good pillows and an extra blanket if needed, help to make you sleep better and improve your overall wellbeing.

Which plants are best for a bedroom?

Like with plants in any other room at home: have a look at the light and temperature conditions of your bedroom before picking a new plant. Is your bedroom fresh and rather dark, don’t pick a plant that requires lots of bright light and warm temperatures. These are some of our favorite plants for a bedroom: 

The Sansevieria plant, also known as snake plant, is a bedroom star: it tolerates low (bedroom) light and thrives off some (reasonable) neglect. Did you know that snake plants even convert carbon dioxide to oxygen during the night? This is proven by several studies and thus makes this plant the green star in your bedroom!

Aloe Vera is a multi-talent in the home. Not only it looks sculptural and is boosted with beneficial effects, it is also a great choice for the bedroom. It removes benzene and formaldehyde from the air and its gel helps to sooth your skin – in case you have no cream or lotion at your bedside. Just sayin’. 

Another plant all-rounder is the Spider Plant or Chlorophytum comosum. It removes toxins from the air, is very very easy to care for, and it is non-toxic for your pets. So all you pet owners out there, get some Spider Plants for the bedroom asap! Plus they look so cool and almost out-of-space when they grow their own little plant babies hanging from long runners. So funky!

Let a Philodendron grow along your bed canopy or a wall for instant style. Also, their leaves are heart-shaped which adds a subtle romantic touch to a bedroom! It also has air-purifying capacities and grows decoratively as a vine above your bed maybe? Why not!

Areca palms are yet another great option for the bedroom. Why? Again they purify the air in your bedroom and are non-toxic for your pets. Additionally, they create an instant tropical vibe to your bedroom transporting you to lush jungles while you dream away. Waking up is like greeting a new day in a thriving jungle! You will sleep like a baby!
