Design Miami: the first Parisian edition gets underway

The first edition of Design Miami Paris opens its doors today, and runs until October 22. The design and decorative arts show offers several galleries and luxury experts the opportunity to exhibit their wares.


After an unexpected cancellation in 2022 for security reasons, Design Miami returns to Paris, and this time for good. The event, which has been held in Miami and Basel since 2005, has moved to the Hôtel des Maisons in the seventh arrondissement.


The program features a number of leading names from the 20th and 21st centuries, exhibiting a range of exceptional furniture and objects. The most prominent galleries, rising design stars, luxury brands and the most influential players in the field are all in Paris.



French Touch in Paris


And for the majority of the twenty-seven galleries who responded to the invitation, it wasn’t a very long journey, as sixteen of them are from Paris. Among them are major names such as Mitterrand, Downtown, Kreo, Éric Philippe and Jacques Lacoste. The latter are accompanied by pieces by Perriand, Lalanne and Royère.


In addition to these big names in Parisian design, the new generation is also represented by galleries such as Desprez Breheret and Ketabi Bourdet. The latter exhibit minimalist design pieces by French designer Philippe Starck and Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, founder of Comme des Garçons.


According to François Laffanour of Galerie Downtown, the interest of the fair lies in its mix of old and new: “[The fair] has remained faithful to the dealers who have participated since the beginning, but [it] has also been able to renew itself over the years to attract international collectors. The level never drops.”
