Sometimes I feel like I should pinch myself to make sure I’m not really dreaming – especially when I find myself at Maison et Objet, in Paris, on a cold January day. Surrounded by beauty, creativity, luxury and craftsmanship – can’t think of a better way to spend a day and get some serious cardio in with all the walking and gasping whenever I saw something I absolutely loved.

Why am I here? Well, my journey has been a long one, transforming and evolving at every step. At the moment I run the marketing department for the most amazing company I’ve ever worked at, Dymak. We specialize in pots for flowers and plants but are going beyond that, into home & decorations. I also design a lot of products for customers around the world and I want to keep up with the latest trends, want to see which direction the most talented designers in the world are going in and I want to be inspired.

Without further ado, here are a couple of the highlights from my visit – keeping the full report for my colleagues and customers, because I’m selfish that way.

Beautiful carved wood sculptures covered in colorful beads by Kronbali

Just a random guy wearing a fur coat on one shoulder for no f***ing reason. Cool.
