10 Reasons To Visit Covet Paris at Maison et Objet – Paris, the eternal city of love. There’s a lot going on in the Ville Lumiére all year long. Sure, we’re all hyped for the Maison et Objet, but, like it or not, we’ll all have some extra few hours beyond the event. And what’s a better way to spend that time than strolling around the European cultural hotspot?
As once said the 3rd American president, Thomas Jefferson, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life.” And he couldn’t be more on point. The French city ravishes us without a warning, overwhelming us with a sense of beauty, culture and philosophy like no other. The Eiffel tower is mandatory, but that’s not Paris in a nutshell. It would be wrong for us to presume it. There’s the food, the theatre, the art. Well, there’s Paris.
Whether you’re strolling up and down in the Champs Elysées, waiting in line for tickets at Moulin Rouge or sitting at a Michelin-starred restaurant, you have to savour every moment like there’s no other. The architecture, heavily influenced by Europe’s most important movements, such as the baroque, the gothic and the illuminism, is every architecture geek’s heaven. It is, after all, the hometown of some of the best writers in history, such as Voltaire, Balzac, Victor Hugo, Jules Verne and Dumas. But it is also the resting point of several other important figures in history, such as Oscar Wilde, Edith Piáf, Jim Morrison and Chopin. It might seem a bit morbid, but if you have the chance, you must visit the Pére Lachaise Cemetery and pay homage to some of the world’s greatest geniuses.
And then there’s the design. There’s no better place in the world to get inspired by amazing design events than Paris. Besides the Maison et Objet, you have the Paris Deco Off and the world renown Paris Fashion Week, amongst others.
This is an opulent palace of curated design that’s home to several high-end brands, such as Boca do Lobo, Luxxu, Brabbu, Essential Home, Delightfull, Circu or Maison Valentina. As any great palace, it’s open for visits, including on weekends, so there is no excuse to miss a visit at this amazing house if you live in Paris, or if you are going to Maison et Objet.
If you are an interior design lover, then this is an absolute must-see stop for you. And where can you find this house you ask? It’s located at 154 Rue des Rosiers, 93400 Saint-Ouen, Paris-France. For a Paris connoisseur, I can tell you It’s just around the corner of the magnificent Carnavalet Museum and a few block away from iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral.
