Maison&Object features lifestyle products from toothbrushes to doors, and everything in between. This means that even the smallest home accent in 2018 can be beautifully and skillfully designed. We love the sleek and innovative dual-sided candles from COSSTRA. The handmade candles feature two different fragrances, one on each end, so you aren’t limited to a single scent.
COSSTRA presents the CANDUAL, the world’s first REVERSIBLE candle…. A collection in balance between simplicity, originality and technical tips, offering unique products. The COSSTRA candles are handcrafted in France and Belgium, in crystalline glass and natural SOJA wax. Our perfumes are developed by our perfumer in Grasse.

So let’s make 2018 the year we get creative with gift giving. Instead of always reaching for a bottle of wine, choose something that will make a more memorable impact. These Shimmer Tea Lights from Zaha Hadid would make a stunning gift. Plus it is also one which the recipient can enjoy for years to come.

In 2018, we expect to see luxury designers experimenting with new and also unexpected materials. One example is Matias Di Carlo’s use of hot forged metal to create this stunning bathtub. This then elevates this common household fixture into something remarkable.
