Relive Paris Deco Off 2018

When are we not all dreaming about our next (or first) trip to Paris?! A casual stroll through the gardens at the Palace of Versailles, a day admiring great works at the Musée d'Orsay or Centre Pompidou, or a behind-the-scenes tour at Foundation Louis Vuitton. And don't forget about the food...oh, the delicious food! As we devise our own plan to get back to Paris - I mean who wouldn't want to source at the Flea Market or scout locations for our next photoshoot (remember that darling Parisian cafe), let's take a moment to look back at Paris Deco Off 2018.
 
For the third year, Fabricut's Pop-Up Showroom was located on the Left Bank in what is usually the Galerie Eric Mouchet at 45 rue Jacob. The gallery's white walls provide the perfect backdrop for our design team to create an inspired space for the week's festivities.

The front window featured our New York Botanical Garden for Vervain's Buchoz Floral in Teal as the focus with a dozen, coordinating upholstered birds - a common theme seen throughout PDO - and a beautiful skirted settee in Stroheim's Rivoli in Iris (on trend with Pantone's Color of the Year).
 
Take a look at the design process behind our window creation:
 
 
Paris Deco Off to us is as much about being inspired ourselves through our industry colleagues as it is inspiring our designer friends with new product collections. Check out some of the inspiration and common themes we found as we window shopped along the Left and Right Bank Showrooms:
 

Moroccan Inspired

The Moroccan design trend takes root from Moorish architecture and is characterized by decorative tile work, intricate carvings, arched doorways and lush colors.
 
Seen at Cole & Sons

This metallic lantern border paired with the carved latticework sends us right to the Marrakech bazaars at Cole & Son.

Botanical Leaves & Island Themes
