The 2024 design tradeshow circuit kicked off this month in Paris with Maison&Objet—the five-day creative event that brings buyers, editors and design enthusiasts from around the world to prospect home and design vendors at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre. Home decor trends were abundant amid celebrations of the show’s thirtieth year and with it, endless ideas and inspiration. Here, we highlight five spotted design trends we’re predicting will be a hit at home.

Home Design Trends From Maison&Objet 2024


Conversation-starting Materials

Perpetuating new design materials has been a hot topic as of late (read our reporting on fruit leather), with companies exploring ways to use waste byproducts or materials that are abundant and renewable in the creation of a wide range of products. French company Ostrea Design, for example, is taking shell waste from mining practices to create on-trend terrazzo. A win-win for the environment and your home.

Playful Outdoor Furniture

Our home is an extension of ourselves and our style, and homeowners want to fill their spaces with pieces that showcase their flair. The same goes for how we design and outfit our outdoor spaces, which, generally speaking, is an area where homeowners tend to play it safe. With the shift to outdoor living year-round and growing popularity in at-home entertaining thanks to the pandemic, why not bring some fun shapes and colors into the mix à la a playful, tropical fish chair from Honoré?

Monolithic Forms

Looking for an anecdote to all the plush boucle-upholstered pieces flooding catalogues and showroom floors? The answer is in monolithic shapes, like this travertine seat by Francesco Balzano for Giobagnara. Equal parts simple and sophisticated, these pieces appear to be made from a single block or stone, and embody a range of references, from the Paleolithic age, to Ancient Greek and Roman times, to the Brutalist masters of the 20th century.

Graphic Grid Patterns

If there were a pattern having its moment in the spotlight, it’s undoubtedly the check. We’re seeing it on everything from wallpaper to rugs to bedding, with the gridlock design providing a grounding, linear feel to a space. But, that doesn’t mean it has to be austere. Case in point: the Finnish brand Juslin—Maunula takes checks on a bohemian spin with its cool, color-blocked stacked cushions. (For further evidence of this popular motif, check out our trend report on the grid from our Jan/Feb issue.)

Thoughtful Juxtaposition

As the tried-and-true saying goes, “opposites attract.” This goes especially for interiors, where contrast results in the most interesting of spaces, like a contemporary painting over an antique French chair. The same goes for products, like this metal and sea rush floor lamp made by talented craftspeople in Tunisia for the brand Tinja. The sleek and bold shape of the metal base paired with a natural material like woven rush covering is unexpectedly cool and makes for a forever-statement piece.
