CovetED Awards

As we shared in a previous post, Maison & Objet is the premier design and home décor show held in Paris.  Each year Coveted Magazine presents CovetED Awards to showcase the very best in innovative products.  There are 17 categories and we’d love to share a few of our favorite coveted items.

Covet House staged a dining room that combines comfort and luxury.

Drama and elegance is offered by Luxxu’s Gala Suspension Lamp.  The bronze and gold color palettes bring a sense of warmth and luxury to these designs that we can’t get enough of!

Maison & Objet always presents the future of interiors and the 2018 showcase did not disappoint.  Until next year, Au Revoir!

Color Is Back: Lime

Our first post in our color series we talked about the trending fashion color for 2018, at least according to Pantone, is purple – PURPLE! I know, it’s actually Ultra Violet, but it’s purple.

The Pantone charts have thousands of colors with all their hues, values, and intensities (quick, grab your Munsel charts).  And yet, for the past few years we have been hung in neutral – how many shades of white linen can you name? Be daring and add grey or go over the top with silver.  OMG!  Here’s a news flash – color never left!  We left color.  If you don’t feel brave yet, let me offer a few suggestions in the lime family.  Check out these decors which feature refreshing and vibrant lime.  We’ve also included a favorite fabric pairing which shows how vibrant colors should be embraced!  Rooms just come to life with richness in color.

The Future of Design

Design comes in all shapes and sizes and here is a digital design that we think is awe inspiring.  MGM is set to open its doors for an integrated resort based in Macau, China.  It will be a multi – dimensional sensory experiences and innovative in every way.

“Soon to become Macau’s most innovative integrated resort, offering never-been-seen-before experiences for guests, Spectacle is the epicenter of entertainment at MGM COTAI. Located at the heart of the resort, Spectacle is over 4-stories high, spanning the length of a soccer field. It is a meticulously engineered column-free long-span diagrid structure. The space will seem to be alive, continually evolving and responding to changing conditions such as visitor behaviors, weather, time of day or season, which will provide an immersive, multi-dimensional sensory experience.”

The future of digital design is here thanks to Obscura Digital, the brilliant designers on this project.
