The Interior Design Show 2013
It has been described as the biggest design party of the year—industry movers and shakers convene on the show floor for a night of local food, cocktails and a sneak peek at the products on display.
January 24th was the start of the Interior Design Show (IDS13) and it opened in great style with their annual gala at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre—now these people know how to throw a good party! And us décor/design types love a good party! What a time to be out and about with everyone connected to interior design and decorating. The food and refreshments were amazing and a lot of fun was had by all. It is a great way to see the different exhibits and catch up with colleagues. As we entered there was an amazing huge balloon arrangement floating from the ceiling and lots of music. First thing after getting our coats checked was an offering of yummy cupcakes and a glass of wine. What could be better? Chocolate + wine = bliss.
I was lucky enough to catch up with some of the best designers and scout out the hottest new interior design finds. This is an event I look forward to each year and what a great way to start off a new year and get inspired for the coming months.
With more than 300 exhibitors showcasing innovative, inspiring interior design, architecture and industrial design trends, the show is a must-see for design lovers. It is like being a kid in a candy shop! A total and fabulous design experience.
I felt inspired after walking the aisles this year. More so than in past years. In fact I usually take tons of photos but this year I was so caught up with the great products and talking that I forgot to take many photos. Here are a few worth mentioning though…
