It’s been a busy week. I’ve been to two trade shows, both extraordinary in their own ways, both in the City of Light, Paris.
Maison et Objet is a massive, buzzing bazaar of offerings with over 1,000 exhibitors displaying everything from carpets, cookware and houseplants to whole rooms you can assemble from flatpack.
It was so enormous the organisers painted red lines on the carpet to help you navigate from room to room. My companion and I felt like we were in The Wizard of Oz following the Yellow Brick Road.
And we still lost each other – twice!
