Plant lovers based in France listen up! We as the Urban Jungle Bloggers have created a small plant collection with Paris based Bergamotte flower and plant service that is available now. If you want to start your own little urban jungle in your French home, check out the Oaxaca mini jungle we created with our Parisian friends!
For the mini jungle we have chosen four beautiful and sturdy plants inspired by the Mexican city of Oaxaca: an Opuntia ‘Ficus’ cactus with juicy cactus figs, a trailing Sedum ‘Burrito’, a spikey agave ‘Nana’, and a leafy Peperomia ‘Napoli’. The four plants come in simple yet beautiful terracotta pots and a small Urban Jungle Bloggers flag. You can order the mini jungle directly from Bergamotte (for France) online. With the Oaxaca collection you can lay the founding stone of your new urban jungle at home!
To see more of the plant collection, check out our post on Urban Jungle Bloggers!

table // pillow // cable-knit rug / chair (a few years old) / metal barrel Can you believe that my fiddle leaf fig tree is still growing? I moved him to the dining room when we had the Christmas tree here. I was worried that moving him out of his spot would make him mad. But not only did he continue to […]

What a week it has been! I mean the past week. I spent five days working at the imm furniture fair in Cologne and then headed off to the Maison & Objet design fair in Paris. In Paris I had the time to roam the fair and bring back some design highlights for you. Without further delay, here are my design highlights from the Maison & Objet 2017 in Paris:
The French high-end furniture brand Cinna surprised me with a vibrant and contemporary mix of furniture and a stunning hanging garden. I loved their collection of urban and cool furniture – in particular I was smitten by the new Humphrey armchair by designer Evangelos Vasileiou. I also had the honor to be part of the official Maison & Objet jury and award my favorite discovery in hall 8. Cinna France made the cut with its fabulous booth design and a cool and contemporary furniture mix.
Wiener GTV Design:
While this brand name might sound cryptic to you, Thonet will be way clearer. In fact, Wiener GTV Design is part of the Thonet design family and featured a fantastic new collection at the Maison & Objet show. I loved the collection’s vibe that recalled the 1920s and 1930s with a surprising mix of colours, materials, and textures.
The Canadian design label Umbra Shift showcased cool and playful designs such as a sculptural watering can, geometric terra-cotta planters, and a super funky magazine holder. Triple like!
Ames Sala by Sebastian Herkner:
This collection by designer Sebastian Herkner was made for the brand Ames and features a sublime collection of handmade pieces. Pottery, wicker ware, home textiles – all handmade by small groups of artisans in Colombia. This is the kind of design I love: handmade, fair, sustainable, with a cultural heritage.
The Serbian/Dutch design duo at Studio Macura presented a sleek, pure design line of home accessories that mix nature elements with refined and sophisticate designs. The result are beautiful pieces for contemporary homes. Look at the beautiful Lava single flower vase or the Livada fragrance vase!
The French design label Eno Studio is yet another cool design discovery. I loved the abundance of dusky pinks combined with velvety greens, brass, wood, and grey. I really liked the fun design pieces inspired by terrazzo flooring and the lovely plant accessories. Definitely worth a closer look!
Well when I am in Paris it is normal that I discover even more French design, right? Hence I stumbled upon Petite Friture, a really fun design label from France. Their booth was rich in colour and shapes, from geometric to organic forms. It featured big colourful faux plants, pebble like cushions, cool cork side tables and more. Keep an eye on them!
Belgian brand Serax will not disappoint you if you like plants. A huge array of planters, lush greens, ceramics and tableware were set in scene with a fabulous hanging garden. Comfy seating areas, a bar, and long, flowing transparent curtains created an almost holiday like atmosphere at their booth. Do I have to mention they have a collection called ‘Urban Jungle’. Now where did they get the inspiration for that? Who knows:-)
Studio Ilse / Zanat:
Ilse Crawford’s ‘Studio Ilse’ presented itself with a spacious open working area and bar where visitors could sit down, rest or work while feeling, touching, and experiencing her designs. I love her latest collaboration with the Bosnian furniture brand Zanat. Their mutual results are wonderful wooden pieces ranging from benches, trays, chairs to lamps.
I hope you enjoyed the little design round-up from this year’s Maison & Objet show in Paris. Do you have any favorites?
