Lustrous Nature: Maison et Objet 2020 Trend Report
The natural world seemed to have played a major role in the collections of a wide range of brands and designers alike for this year’s Maison Et Objet exhibit. Everything from simple, organic lines, to literal translations of nature, were pronounced alongside a striking and luxurious twist.
Nature has undoubtedly and consistently been a source of inspiration to designers due to the #naturalbeauty it holds. However, we also see that having a little luster never hurts. Defined by natural forms, accentuated by lustrous surfaces that give the impression of gold-dipped pieces, #LustrousNature is a response to wondering if we can freeze the beauty nature possesses, making it “eternal” or a type of beauty that never fades.

Being a fusion between the organic and the man-manipulated, this trend leaves a strong impression of class, luxury, and character in ways not recognized before. This reinterpretation of bringing the outdoors inside may just be the most luxurious one of its kind.
