In the LA Times House & Garden section, this week's feature article is all about the latest and greatest from Paris. They highlight some of their current trends they saw at the recent Maison & Object Home furnishings show...

One of the key trends was the non-presense of color. "... a decidedly monochromatic air, a sense of deja vu recalling a recent successions of seasons in which white, then black, then black and white, and then white again (with a side of black) have become the inevitable palette dominating European interiors." Instead, many designers chose to play up "form, pattern, and shadow." From the looks of the slideshow, it appears that despite all the white, there wasn't any lack in imagination. Lots of fun, conceptual, even dare I say, "wacky" designs were shown. Check out the LA Time's full review of the Maison & Object show here, and don't miss the extensive slideshow.
