Interior design: vintage back in the spotlight


Retro styles will be a force to be reckoned with at the next edition of Paris home and design show Maison & Objet (September 7-11 at Paris Nord Villepinte).

Objects, patterns and color themes will have that distinctive retro flavor, a trend that was brought back to the fore by acclaimed TV series Mad Men.

"Nowadays, vintage and industrial styles have become their own movement," explain the organizers of Maison & Objet, a trade show for interior design and home decoration professionals.

The Gras lamp which has been reissued by DCW, will be on show at the "now! design à vivre" area, alongside Anouchka Potdevin's retro furniture and Elipson's 1970s-style speakers.

Fabrics also took a trip in the time machine: Culture Maison is bringing back linens with a distinct 1950s flavor, such as Möve's bath linens that are inspired by a line created for the Helsinki Olympics in 1952.

"Whether it's nostalgia or performance, these cult-objects have never been so trendy," conclude the organizers.
