Maison&Objet, which took place in Paris from 18th-22nd this month, welcomed 84,236 visitors, including 46,356 French and 37,880 international visitors from 160 countries. This figure is slightly lower than the record set in January last year, but, despite social unrest in France in recent weeks, the quality of attendance remained significant and was welcomed by exhibitors, states the show's organiser.
At the exhibition, 2910 brands presented their latest creations - 603 of them exhibiting for the first time. A significant 62% of these were foreign brands, hailing from 65 countries.
Finally, positive feedback from the public lent further weight to the organiser's decision to divide the halls into sectors - a step first taken last September and refined at this month's edition. Dividing the fair into two hubs – Maison and Objet – also made it easier to understand, and more intuitive for visitors.
