If you are in the City of Lights and planning to attend the Maison & Objet show, then do make a stopover at CÔTÉ DESIGN (hall no 4, stand F86 G85). The French design house may not be as popular as a Moroso, or a Missoni however their collections are equally distinguish. The design house is gaining a formidable reputation for creating products that are steeped in the traditional French ethos but are also relevant in the modern context. Take for instance the Manhattan Coffee Table which will be at home in both the French Riviera or New York. Then there is the Travel Cabinets that reminds me of the Louis Vuitton legendary luggage collection even though CÔTÉ DESIGN list cruise liners as their source of inspiration.
