Inspiration table decoration Maison et Object Cottona

Table decoration inspiration – Visit to Maison et object Paris exhibition

Finally, after 2 years, we were able to go to Maison et Object. The most fantastic exhibition when it comes to table decoration, and, a great reason to go to my beloved France. I get so much energy from a day at such an exhibition, from all the people and all the beautiful table decorations for the home. Purchasing is a little tricky this year compared to previous years.

All this aside, we have managed to find a few jewels at the exhibition.

Spring table

Spring table with Cottona. Mix & match striped and checked natural table linen

It’s springtime again! No change of season makes me happier than when winter turns to spring! For me, 15 degrees, sun and a southerly wind is pure enjoyment.

This year we’re decking the spring table with striped and checked natural table linen!
