I love this time of year – the city’s creative spirit comes out to play and we are treated to the very best in interior design and design trends.
This weekend don’t miss checking out the Toronto Interior Design show. You will be wooed, you will be wow’d. Every booth showcases products in unique and innovative ways that make you want to start from scratch in your own home.
Here are some of my favourite booths:
The weird and wonderful Susan for Susan
This Toronto based design studio showcased these handmade pieces by brothers and founders, John and Kevin Watts.
Creating through “collaborative self-expression” I loved the raw, earthy sculptural quality of their pieces.
I can not get enough of Toronto-based, Hollis + Morris
Their booth was one of my favourites with their innovative and bold lighting and furniture designs.
This light stole my heart…
Bold, eclectic and eccentric, Bettencourt Manor’s booth is something Liz Taylor, if she were around today, would deeply appreciate.
The pure glamour, the bold contrasting patterns and audacious mix of textures…it is gorgeous.
Joon Hee Kim Ceramics is a recent graduate of the Sheridan College ceramics program and knocked it out with her booth.
The creativity and skill of her pieces will have your staring at them, trying to unlock their hidden inspiration.
Objects and Ideas had a minimalist approach to their booth that is very eye catching.
Their Wye Rocker chair is a star of the show – a timeless piece of pure craftsmanship.
Both Benjamin Moore and Home Hardware have large, immersive display areas, showcasing the latest of their collections.
The Home Hardware ‘glamping tent’ is a cozy, and oh so instagrammable area that starts the story of their partnership with Parks Canada.
They created a 47 colour collection this year, one colour for every National Park in Canada.
Benjamin Moore’s vast area is a great place to take a load off and snack on this year’s colour of the year, in cake pop form…caliente!
WIth so many amazingly creative, well thought out spaces from the ‘Hanstone Lodge’ to my fave, Rollout’s incredible undertaking of five #uncommonspaces (one of which is a giant bubble gum seating area) – you need at least half a day to soak it all in.
On now until Sunday at Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre. Don’t miss out the chance to be inspired.
