Paris Design Week’s January iteration has drawn to a close, but not without the two most prominent shows, Maison & Objet and Déco Off, introducing a slew of design trends. EAL correspondent Marisa Marcantonio reports back on what’s trending now, from bold colors and textures to aviary-inspired pieces, despite an admitted downturn in this season’s inspiration. “Editors claimed the show, where accessories are the main draw, was lacking in inspiration and I have to agree, there was not something to amaze and delight around every turn,” writes Marcantonio. “But lo and behold, I found design inspiration worth getting excited about.”

Some of the trends?

Bold colors, as evidenced by the archival Songbird design from Dedar

Seasonless tropics, like bright patterns at Pierre Frey

Textural, tactile, via a yellow abstracted ikat that Marcantonio sourced at Jim Thompson’s Bonsai of the Vanities collection

Aviary, with offerings from De Gournay and Nobilis
