ast year, the PAD celebrated its 20th birthday, and its London counterpart its 10th. This mature exhibition, comfortably
established in the design fair landscape, shouldn’t disappoint its loyal visitors. While the London edition remains more international, France’s role in the history of art gives it a legitimate place in design and the decorative arts that no other country can compete with.

The regulars will all be there, including Chahan, Scremini, Jousse Entreprise, and Mermoz. And though François Laffanour's overbooked fair calendar forced him to retire from the proceedings this year, a dozen new exhibitors are now joining in, including heavyweights like Marcilhac, Mingei and Alexandre Biaggi, the jeweller Lorenz

Pierre Dumonteil, founder of the eponymous gallery, emphasises the flawless organisation of the exhibition directed by Patrick Perrin, while Sophie Mainier-Jullerot, codirector of the Mouvements Modernes Gallery, praises the exhibition’s visitors: "We take part in the Paris edition because you meet customers whose spending power may not be as extraordinary as in London, but who are incredibly loyal."

A yearning for nature

Contemporary aesthetics and simple shapes bring out its decorative qualities, as with the "Gousse" furniture piece by the young cabinetmaker Benjamin Pagart, on sale at the Catzeflis Gallery for around €15,000. For the past few years, ceramics – another star material - has been the medium for many incredibly creative artists, who
