This weekend the Interior Design Show is being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. The show features all the latest industry products and brands from Canada and around the world.
In past years I’ve only gone on trades day which is held on the Friday. This year I attended the opening night gala for the first time and what a party it was!
The place was packed with local, and international designers going booth to booth enjoying complimentary cocktails and snacking on delicious hor d’oeuvres. Normally after trades day I come home with a phone full of photos, but I quickly realized Thursday night that it was going to be impossible to get a good picture without a photo bomb of someone with a glass of wine!
So please excuse my not so composed photos and the addition of photos from other’s instagram accounts as I share with you the latest trends I spotted on Gala night!
Wood. I didn’t notice as much reclaimed wood products at the show this year as I’ve seen in years past. This year wood took on a cleaner and lighter look both in it’s lines and finish.
Tile. From floors to walls, tiles were used to make big statements!
I wish I had gotten a better photo of the grout used for the herringbone tile on the right. It had a sparkles mixed into it. Tres chic!
A gorgeous floor in marble.
Creekside Tile Co. display was all around amazing.
Metals. Even thou brass has been hot for a while now, there was a lot more of it this year then I’ve seen at past shows. Even it’s warmer cousin rose gold cold be seen in small dose… Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of it 🙁
Geometrics. Products created using three dimensional geometrics also had it’s moments.
Pink.Pop of pale pink could be found through out the show. Even our trendy pink feathered friend made an appearance:)
& everything else…
The Dekton booth by Cecconi Sinmone was stunning in all white.
These candle holders by Creator of Objects were even more beautiful in person
Fallow and Ball showed off their 8 newest colours with painted ceramic deer wall mounts.
DXV by American Standard debuted their 3D printed faucets that I somehow missed even though I’ve been dying to see them in person. However, Regina Sturrock classic story of Anna Karenina for DXV was one of my favourite displays of the night!
The IDS is on all weekend and is open to the public today and Sunday.
