Hall 6 of Maison & Objet is the paradise of paper: those who like to browse empty notebooks only to smell the paper, can imagine how I felt in the midst of 200 stalls of notebooks, diaries, papers, notepads and post-it notes manufacturers, and so on.

So I’ve chosen the latest products, my very personal discoveries at Maison & Objet, and paper gift ideas perfect for paper-addicts.

Jo & Judy

Jo & Judy is a German company run by a young team that takes care of every detail. Notebooks, postcards, posters and calendars are divided into three collections: pink, dark blue and gray. Agendas are their pieces de resistance: beautiful to see, super soft to touch and arranged perfectly with everything a freelancer needs. We’ll talk about them later this year.Jo and Judy Stationery news and paper gift

Nomess Copenhagen

Nomess Copenhagen is a Danish company founded in 2017 that aims to simplify the products and design them to make them easier to use in our everyday life. Not a bad idea! The result are simple but very cured products. The notebooks with the cover made of cork are only one example.Nomess Copenhagen Stationery news and paper gift


From Denmark we move a bit more to the East, in Japan. 365notebook are junpakushi paper notebooks. Junpakushi is a thin paper used to produce the Japanese calendars. The pages of the notebook are white and translucent, and the notebook is sold with a set of a pattern plastic sheets (squares, dots, lines, diagonal lines, concentric circles) which can be placed behind the writing sheet to monitor a grid.

From France, Supereditions fights coloring books, that kill creativity, and offers books to illustrate. Stories sketched to illustrate. I loved the spelling book: a nice gift for a child, but also for his parents, or for an illustrator with a creative block.Supereditions Stationery news and paper gift
