Top Design Themes at Déco Off Paris

Fabric and wallcovering manufacturers took over the Right and Left Banks of Paris for the annual Déco Off (@parisdecooff_officialpresentations. We noticed natural instincts aplenty with animals, flora, and fauna taking center stage. An Art Deco revival was also in the air with patterns recalling the 1920s and 30s. Finally, designer collaborations by the likes of Interior Design Hall of Fame member Peter Marino and leathercrafter Bill Amberg added star power. Paris, as usual, did not disappoint. Here are some of our favorite finds.

The Bill Amberg Collection for Moore & Giles
