We are just back from the Maison & Objet design show in Paris and we were on the hunt for new plant trends for 2017. Exhausted but happy we brought back quite a few green design highlights from Paris. Let us start with one of our absolute highlights: The lush boot of French high-end furniture brand Cinna France. Unlike other high-end design labels, Cinna features very vibrant, contemporary and urban furniture. But it also featured a breath-taking hanging garden. Three hanging grids, each 2,000 kilos heavy, were abundantly planted with lush greens. Palms, ferns, philodendrons, Rhipsalis and other leafy plants invited the visitor to come and discover design under a green canopy. Honestly, wouldn’t you like such a fantastic hanging garden if you had a big and spacious home? We’d be very happy to have one! But let’s have a look at more green design and plant discoveries from Paris.
Not new (spotted also at last year’s Maison & Objet): the outline plant frames (trellis) and terracotta pots by Eno Studio. Different shape, but also a beautiful graphic support for trailing plants: the LIPA plant trellis by Studio Macura:

Sempre from Belgium created a jungle bar in the middle of one of the halls at Maison et Objet. Makes you want to hang out for hours and drink cocktails, right?
Papier Tigre showed a quick, fast and inexpensive idea to update your plastic plant pots: simply wrap a beautiful paper, like the new Papier Tigre wallpaper, around the pot and attach with some washi tape. There you have it: a fun and stylish plant pot:
