Interior Design Show Toronto Canada 2016

We were at the IDS 2016 Toronto last weekend and discovered so many new products that have hit the market recently.  Here we are sharing with you things that impressed us the most. It was such a fun event and ended up being a total date night for both of us !

Dhiraj at the Beauti-Tone Color Bar, one of the coolest booths at the show.

At the Excel Gum booth designed by Jillian Harris host of the Love it or List it show.


Lasvit Chandelier

So lighting was everywhere and some amazing designs. This piece above my head is one I loved the most but it was a close tie with the transparent shaped chandeliers designed by Jan Plechav and Henry Wielgus at Lasvit Lighting. I am currently hunting down the perfect chandelier for my client`s formal living room and am smitten with these options.

Wood veneer when you want to clad a wall but you do not want to use barn wood. Thin and sleek and easy to layer over your pre-existing walls. Here is an example of when D clad a custom Home Bar with barn wood.

Vintage world maps, I absolutely adore these and they look stunning on the grey walls.

D checking out Quartz options..........

Quirky plant holders for a modern touch to your home. Who says everything has to sit only on the floor !

Pelicans everywhere ! I love when a booth goes over the top on the decor - total stand out ! 

Habitat for Humanity had built a house with 38,000 pieces of mega blocks - prettay cool ! Layla would have loved to see this in person.

These hidden beds are so well designed - thats a bed in there.

And another bed in there too !

Fake fireplace with light and vapor only ! Great for a feature wall when you don`t really need the heat but more of a statement !

There wasn`t much art but of the little that was there this piece stole my heart. A vintage photo that was blown up and mounted onto wood with a resin seal. Just stunning ! I am a sucker for old photographs and this is such a nice way to display something memorable.

We even got to see Suzanne Dimma (editor of House & Home) and Linda Reeves present on current Design Trends. They were at the show last year too.........see pics from last year`s event HERE.

This funky watch winder for the indulgent male in you ! Seriously just look at the design !

Coffee tables dual purposed ! very funky ! by Garman Furniture

My favorite shades in color schemes..............

Rugs galore !

Encaustic Tiles at Creekside Tile, they had some funky stuff to show off, including tiles and glitter grout. See the video of gold glitter grout on my Instagram feed where I share daily Design Inspiration and New finds.

Cool outdoor tiles in a modern pattern.

Farrow & Ball`s chosen 8 colors of the year.

Beauti-Tone`s chosen 4 colors of the year

Benjamin Moore declared WHITE as their color of the year. I concur !

Ikea cabinet doors made by Semi-Handmade when you want a different look to your cabinets. They make them in all sizes and they fit every Ikea cabinet - something D was most impressed with as he works alot with Ikea cabinets in kitchens, custom home bars, closets, etc.

And it was well worth the trip. Shows like this feed our soul and keep us informed on what`s new in the design world. And that is in addition to the hundreds of design blogs we follow, Home mags we read and Design books we order. 

Hope you enjoyed this post. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to us for any of your design needs.

Leaving you with this note:

`Home Renovation does not have to be costly or stressful. Working with a qualified interior designer can help save you time and money - adding value to your investment``.

Big hugs
