Four beautiful designs from Maison & Objet 2016

One of the best things about visiting Maison & Objet Paris this weekend was discovering new items and chatting to the passionate designers behind them. Here are four items that I completely fell in love with:

1. Dutch designer Jurianne Matter creates a whole host of pretty eco-friendly things using paper, textiles and ceramics. I particularly loved the twig leaves - once threaded, you can go wild and bend it into any shape you like.

2.  Created for Alicja Patanowski's final project at the Royal College of Art in London, PLANTATION is made up of four different porcelain shapes used for growing herbs and ornamental plants in any disused glass using the principles of hydroponics. Thanks to the use of only water, you can watch the the stems and roots grow too. Time to put that old pint glass to use?!

3.  The NOMAD chair by Copenhagen based We do Wood is inspired by the traditional English camping chair. It's lightweight and portable, made from sustainable natural resources and above all else - so comfy that when I tested it out at the fair I couldn't get back up!

4. And for the kids, the young French brand Main Sauvage has it covered! The super soft and cosy dye-free toys for kids are hand knitted in a Bolivian Fair Trade Cooperative (I might just have to get one for myself too!).

Such lovely designs!

Do you have a favourite?
