It’s that time again, where editors from all over the world make their way to Paris to check out the latest and greatest in home furnishings and decor. If we don’t walk the halls of Home&Object, Paris’ huge biennial design fair, we take a look at the city’s exciting happenings, from lively gallery shows to expertly curated shops. It’s always when we think we’ve seen it all that there’s something new around the corner to come back to the US raving about. And from every gem I’ve seen at the show this year, here are the top five brands with booths that filled my camera roll and my mind.

Thanks to Foundy

If we value quality materials when it comes to our fashion and home accessories, why should our training equipment be any different? The new lifestyle brand from Seoul Foundy agrees: it is kettlebells are made of beech wood and buttery leather from the same supplier Hermes uses. The Essential box maybe $20,000, but every cent counts with its contents (there are also dumbbells, blocks, and a roller inside) and its deluxe case, which even the anti-athletes among us would be proud to display.

Thanks to our Society

Directly from Aarhus, Denmark, Our society launched its new line of modern aluminum furniture, lighting and accessories at the fair. The founders strive to collaborate with emerging designers such as Studio and LeclercqViallet, to create simple, contemporary pieces. I would find endless uses for the streamlined KK Kruk.

Thanks to Wigiwama

We’ve been noticing corduroy popping up in the home for a while, but now the textured material has found its place in the kid’s world too. After seeing Wigiwama’s Bubblegum CollectionI’m considering snagging a Tetris-esque Rainbow playset or a versatile one Folding chair for my own apartment.

Thanks to Trame

Show me a beautifully curated range of Mediterranean-inspired vessels and textiles and I’m sold. And the Trame company, new to me, is just that: On the display was a carpet so beautiful it deserves to be hung on the wall (in fact it has been for about any floor covering on his site). And how often do you come? 3D printed ceramics?

Thanks to Pierre Gonalons

candy-hued side tables stole the show from the Paris-based designer Pierre Gonalons‘ stall. Almost as stunning as the tables themselves was the box of endless glaze samples for buyers to choose from. Plus it’s indoor/outdoor. Perfect for the Parisian terrace of my dreams.
