Highlights from Paris Design Week 2024

Crisp, sub-zero temperatures did little to dissuade the crowds from attending Paris Design Week 2024, the fabric-, wallpaper-, lighting-, and furniture-focused show that takes place in the French capital. The programme of events (18 – 22 January) spread across the city centre arrondissements – with St Germain the hub for Paris Deco Off and Maison Objet In The City – and included more than 100 showrooms, apartments, and pop-up spaces, which provided the backdrop for myriad new launches.

Demonstrating a flare for diversity, the Italian fabric and wallcovering design house Dedar Milano unveils ‘Contemporary Archives’, an eclectic collection that incorporates design cues of both classical and contemporary styles. Dedar describes this new collection as a ‘journey’, explaining, ‘the road winds its way through the immortal tiger skin and soft enigmatic labyrinths; it passes through the geometric motifs of suit fabrics, storied effects reminiscent of jewellery making’, and on to an ‘abstract revisitation of Japanese figurative art’. Possibly one of the most eye-catching of all the new designs are three new interpretations of Dedar’s woven jacquard tiger’s skin – a deep orange woven jacquard fabric now available in three slightly different tiger-print scales.
