The Canadian Furniture Show has been held in Toronto since 1972 and is the the 7th largest trade show in Canada and the only Canadian furniture show. It brings together professionals in the industry with over 250 suppliers with over 425,000 square feet of show space. The 2015 edition of the show introduced a consumer day where consumers could join in on the fun of discovering new and fabulous introductions to the marketplace.
I was anticipating the show this year, not only for the opportunity to discover new items for future projects, but I was also looking forward to my task as a ‘design spotter’. This year, the show was revamped to add an element of fun and discovery with the using the power of social media.
As one of the ‘design spotters’, I walked the floor with a sharp eye, discovering new and unique design and putting my ‘stamp’ on the items with a card provided by the show management.
