WGSN-homebuildlife has been in Paris all weekend and today reports live from the first Maison et Objet of 2011, highlighting the three key trends to emerge from the influential interiors event:

1. Fluorescents: In contrast to the subdued colour palette’s of the last season, day glo colours dominate tableware and soft accessories at Maison&Objet this year 

2. Kaleidoscope: Glassware is layered to create new colour mixes and add interest to tableware, bathroom accessories and lighting

3. Sci-fi: Upholstery has taken on an outer space aesthetic this year with acidic colour ways and outlandish forms
