Toronto Interior Design Show: IDS’14

Posted 8 years ago by myetvmedia

Last night we had the pleasure of attending the media preview of this year’s Interior Design Show, on now at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. Wowed and inspired from every direction (I’ll be saving up to re-do my bathroom as of last night), there were a few exhibitors that were of particular note. While checking out the show this January 24-26th make sure you stop by and catch these amazing designs.  

Moroso at Klaus Exhibit

Displaying an impressive three generations of design work, Italian design house Moroso’s creative director Patrizia Moroso (who is also IDS’ International Guest of Honor) curated this exhibit showcasing Moroso couches, armchairs, and accessories from the 80s, 90s and 2000s. What’s even more impressive is the contemporary vibe each showcase exudes without feeling dated. All of the art work featured was created by Moroso’s husband, exhibiting Moroso’s strong family values.

Ikea booth

Every year Ikea demonstrates how to create a beautiful home on a small budget. This year they showed off bathroom and kitchen designs with an 18th century twist; gold tiles with contemporary closet systems, a grand kitchen with gilded mirrors, and clean lines. Emphasizing luxury in the home, Ikea’s design strategy this year is based around simple, affordable design basics like cabinetry and shelving and spending your hard earned dollars on more luxurious, personalized items such as vintage chandeliers, and reupholstered vintage furniture in modern, bright textiles.

QC Design Exhibit

Showcasing Canadian talent and innovation is the QC’s Design booth. From textiles to lighting to ceramics and more, 15 Quebec designers show off cutting edge designs that are socially responsible and over the top original. Honorable mentions include Foutu Tissu (http://www.foututissu.com ) handmade textiles and L’Atelier Non-Useless, (http://www.nonuseless.com/collections/all ) a design duo that fuses form and fun together to create truly unique products.

Islands by Raw Edges Design Studio

Leave it to Caesarstone to constantly be reinventing the wheel, and teaming up on amazing design collaborations (their accessories collab with Canadian fashion design team Mackage can be seen here) and this year’s Islands exhibit didin’t disapoint. Differentiating themselves from the clean, minimalist trend, Raw Edges design studio took a playful approach that is reminiscent of a childs toy, or something you might see in a Jim Henson film.

Lisa Canning & National Bank

Interior designer and HGTV’s ‘For Rent’ design lead, Lisa Canning teams up with National Bank for the Design Stop. Focusing on latest design trends Lisa is available for free consultations and her booth has tips on incorporating the latest trends into your home now.
