We’re still in the very beginning of 2020 and we already have so many good memorable design events happening! Maison et Objet 2020 was a success! The french design event is one of the most renowned in the entire world, therefore it brought us the opportunity to take a look at some of the best high-end furniture brands, products, and trends.
The same happened with imm Cologne. Even though the event is smaller, it sure was a great opportunity for brands to showcase and present the world with their projects. We bring you the highlights of both events, where the main star was interior design!
