Feather your nest : boundary-pushing new interiors trends from Paris interiors show Maison et Objet 2018

British design shines at the huge international show where the latest trends in interiors are showcased.

London’s Sebastian Conran was enlisted by 14 makers from the Gifu region of Japan to bring their ancient craft skills to a Western market.

Resulting products include finger-jointed furniture, super-sharp knives with textured blades and ergonomic handles, ceramics pooled in a glossy blue glaze, and lamps fashioned from paper with a 1,000-year pedigree.
