Transformative Trends for Your Home
One key trendy piece can make all the difference in changing the look and feel of your home
by Patti Sunio
Last week, French trade fair Maison & Objet's digital platform, Maison & Objet and More (MOM), launched Digital Days, an online event that presents the best in design. The series runs in eight editions, each under a unique theme: Unexpected Gift, Trendy Déco, Well at Work, Craft Métiers d'art, Outdoor Living, Sustainable, Premium Design, and So French.
On its second week, Digital Days focused on Trendy Déco, highlighting accent furniture, accessories, and decor that can easily transform a space—with no need for a total overhaul. The new trend, in fact, isn't about changing interiors with the seasons, but finding joy in key trendy pieces that are statement-making and transformative, but meaningful too. Because if there's anything we're taking away from the past months spent in lockdown, it's to consume less, create intentionally, and go for seasonless designs.
