Bonjour!  Brush up on your French and get ready for the Maison & Objet debut right in our own backyard, Miami, and we are thrilled!  IFDA Florida will be welcoming our fellow members  from chapters all across the country.  This phenomenal trade show will be held May 12 through 15 at the Miami Convention Center.

MAISON&OBJET AMERICAS aims to propose an annual event for North and South American visitors and professionals.
It will bring together a selection of  brands representing the upscale spirit that has made MAISON&OBJET PARIS such a success.

The collections presented will be representative of families of products and design concepts present at MAISON&OBJET PARIS (furniture, objects, lighting, tableware, furnishings, upholstery fabric, decorative accessories, linens, materials, overarching decoration concepts, etc.).

MAISON&OBJET AMERICAS be fully organized by the MAISON&OBJET PARIS teams, thereby ensuring the DNA of the show is retained.

What is this Maison & Objets? Wikipedia says, ” it is a major French Trade fair for Interior Design. Held biannually, it has been described as among the 3 most important European events for interior design … a huge collection of innovation and talent all in one place.”
