M&O Paris
Last week we were with San Diego interior designer Laura Birns at New York Design Week.  Now, we’re back across the pond to Paris, where she checked into Maison & Objet.

Along with its international expansion, with Maison & Object Asia in Singapore and M&O Americas in Miami Beach, Maison & Objet began to reorganize its two Parisian editions last September.

M&O Paris now offers a clearer perspective of three main areas: (1) Maison and its wide range of interior decoration, organized into different worlds; (2) Objet, the show’s concept store, ideal for retailers; and finally (3) Luxury, design & interior décor.

Laura Birns, a member of the Americans Society of Interior Designers goes to all the top new furnishings shows on the planet.  In her most recent “Design Matters” blog she posted a gallery of what she considers the best of show for 2015.  Each week for the next few weeks,  will feature creative designs from a different international show as seen through the eyes of one of San Diego’s top design talents.


La Chance Climb
Created by Polish designer Basko Trybek, this modular shelving system appears to be held in place by the tension of the metal rods. The birch or walnut shelves are beveled on all the edges.

Normann Copenhagen Ekko
Norwegian designers Gunzler Polmar used traditional weaving techniques for this lamb’s wool throw blanket, making the front and back identical. Ekko comes in a gray version, as well as three other colorways.

NEXT WEEK:  Hot design from London Design Festival

Birns operates a full service interior design service based in San Diego’s North County.  For more on Laura and to subscribe to her newsletter contact her at or 760. 438.0731.  Her webpage is
