A Look Back at Paris Design Week
As a leading architecture and interior design firm that works on various projects, styles and approaches, we always strive to stay up to date with the latest trends and updates across these sectors. Most recently, in January 2023 our senior Interior Designer, Lizzi Nutt, attended Paris Design Week, to kick-start the year with some new inspiration and connect with peers from around the world. This was an exciting opportunity for us to learn about the new and emerging design trends, products, and materials that will shape the industry over the coming year.
Attending design shows and remaining engaged is essential to our ongoing practice as interior design professionals, and Paris Design Week did not disappoint. We know the importance of staying on top of these design trends and seeing the most innovative products available, as we can then pass on these learnings to our clients as they develop their dream homes, new businesses or inspiring office spaces. We believe it’s our responsibility to be able to offer our clients the most modern and cutting-edge designs possible and have a full understanding of the new trends on the horizon.
This was a nice milestone for Team TINTO — our first visit to Paris Design Week, having only attended shows in the UK previously. Seeing totally new products, ways of approaching design, and different considerations was truly inspiring.
"The event was a golden opportunity to experience the innovative and creative designs the international community is working on. The show allowed us to see what is happening in the design world, meet new designers and experience the latest styles and approaches."
One of the key trends at the Paris Design Week was sustainability. This continues to be an issue of ever-growing importance — from our clients but also from us to our suppliers. We saw a wide array of exciting new products that use recycled materials and waste products, bringing interior design into the circular economy in a really interesting way. One of the most interesting experimental materials was a material that referenced terrazzo but was made from recycled plastics — a potential game-changer in terms of sustainable materials with aesthetic appeal.

Maximalism was also a common thread throughout the week, with bold colours and patterns everywhere. This made for a fun and exciting atmosphere.
The opportunity to attend this event was inspiring and educational, and we came back energised and excited to bring these new ideas, styles and products to our colleagues and clients. Team TINTO is committed to staying at the forefront of the interior design space, and we are already looking forward to our next show this May — Clerkenwell Design Week in London. Watch this space!
