Trend-spotting in Paris

Thanks to Main Line Magazine for including me in their latest Main Menu e-Newsletter regarding my trip to Paris. Trend-spotting in Paris Merion interior designer Maria Viola will be blogging about her experience at Maison & Objet Paris, an international trade exhibition for home design and décor that will run from September 7 through Sept. 11.

Viola is a residential and a commercial designer, as well as an adjunct faculty member at The Art Institute of Philadelphia and Drexel University.

I am traveling to Paris for Maison & Objet in part due to winning the GRANGE Furniture Colorful Exceptions Design Contest in February of this year. Besides having my furniture design hand produced at their factory Lyon, France; I was mentioned in the May issue of Traditional Home Magazine, my furniture piece will be featured in the GRANGE 2012/2013  marketing pieces and I received a fabulous French Prize......and this is it :-) As Main Line Magazine mentioned, I will be reporting on the latest trends in color, home fashion and design. I can't wait, this is going to be tres magnifique!!
