The Interior Design Show returns to Toronto on January 19th and promises to be a lively and creativity-infused affair. Exhibitors at this year’s show include major vendors and big names in interior design such as Benjamin Moore and Microsoft, amongst hundreds more. If you’re heading to the IDS this year, we recommend singling out these five unique exhibits at some point during the action-packed weekend.
Presented by Natural Landscape Group and Land Art Design Landscape Architects Inc., The Open Air exhibit centers around curating an outdoor space in a way that is purposeful, strategic, and beautiful.
We can’t get enough of home automation and neither can IDS17! The exhibit is designed by MIO, powered by Samsung, and the collection of techy gadgets and apps have been carefully selected by the CEOs of itsme and Danby Appliances.
Stone Age Folk
Aptly named, this installation, (by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon in collaboration with Caesarstone), will feature wares made using Caesarstone engineered quartz as the predominate component, supplemented with contrasting materials such as metal and glass. Guests can look out for pieces from this unique installation, which will be “popping up throughout the space, alongside joyful carousels, wall panels, lights and tables.”
This exhibit, curated by Design Milk, highlights the work of independent artisans and limited edition, hand-crafted designs. Maker is geared towards small-scale endeavors who are ready for a market transformation, via exposure through the IDS.
True to its name, the Ontario Wood exhibit showcases designs produced with locally sourced wood. Post-show, the designs will be dismantled and repurposed by Habitat for Humanity.
