Audra Burch of The Miami Herald declared that Maison&Objet Americas held “thoughtfully curated compositions of opulent goods” in her article for the Home & Garden section of the paper last week. Writing for Ocean Drive magazine, Jean Nayar, called it a “must-see event for design cognoscenti around the globe”; and the Curbed Miami site featured a retrospective of the creatively expressive booths in its Adventures in Interior Design section titled “French Interior Design Exhibition Maison&Objet Does Miami.

”The editors of Global Trends thought we’d give fine design its close-up, this “fifteen minutes” a macro peek at how chic trending texture has become. We hope you enjoy the survey!

Let us know if you have a favorite tantalizing texture we featured from this brand-new Maison&Objet, which has twice yearly produced some of the foremost European design events in Paris and recently debuted in Asia, will you? You can also read about the fair’s Designer of the Year, Zanini de Zanine, in this blog post we put up last week highlighting the French organizer’s choice of this Brazilian design visionary. If you’re a fan of design superstar Philippe Starck, be sure to watch this video organizers played during de Zanine’s award ceremony.

Be sure to follow us on social media, as we have some terrific images and exchanges from our recent escapades to the NYCxDesign fairs on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. We spotted the Anglepoise desk lamp, which we’ve covered in-depth, at ICFF (as well as the Ceramic Tiles of Italy gang from Bologna); listened to Dwell editor-and-chief Amanda Dameron interview British design superstar Tom Dixon at designjunction, where we bumped into our pals at Dezeen; heard Pamela Jaccarino, the editor-in-chief of Luxe Magazine, lead several panels discussing important topics relating to design; said hello to a visionary in philanthropy we’ve featured before, Pepe Heykoop; took a tour of all five design fairs (WantedDesign, Collective Design and Sight Unseen, as well as the others  mentioned previously); and blabbed about the other happenings that make NYC the world design capital during May each year. We love running with such fast company!
