Last weekend was Toronto’s Interior Design Show.
Innovative design, inspirational exhibits and influential speakers make for an event not to be missed.
Each year exhibitors try to cook up some new eye candy with booth displays that are truly notable and statement worthy.
It’s always an exciting show.
I toured the show for 2 days and took lots of photos.
Here are just a few.
Paint colours were demonstrated in a variety of styles by Benjamin Moore, Farrow & Ball and Para Paints.
Colour was definitely the theme at the Smeg booth with these colourful 50’s-style retro refrigerators.
‘Retro’ was present in a big way as evidenced at the Hauser booth with colour, scalloped skirting and flower-power.
And at the Roche-Bobois booth the sofa originally designed in the 1970’s by Hans Hopfer has maintained a lasting sense of style and ‘inventiveness’ due to its infinite compositions and fabric. Loved the fabric created by well-known designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
And you could feel the ‘groove’ at Missoni Home with the riot of colour, iconic fabrics and the renowned zigzag.
I loved the Montauk Sofa booth, it was so fun. I mean literally you can only re-invent a room display so many times!
The new SEKTION kitchen line from IKEA was introduced at the show with Canadian home décor magazines, House and Home and Style at Home along with IKEA creating 3 different kitchen layouts. Very similar, very different. Very inspiring!
Bathroom fixtures abound but PierDeco Design takes ‘sitting on the throne’ one step further with their Aquamobilia line!
And don’t forget to look up; there are many amazing light fixtures. And on a playful note, Canadian designer Philippe Malouin appealed to the child in all of us with this interactive swing set at the Caesarstone display. Yup that’s right….a full scale swing with each seat made from a different sample of Caesarstone!
I have barely introduced you to the many amazing exhibits that were present.
Absolutely a show not to miss!

Looks like my sofa is still in style
Great site. Wondering if you know what month/year of the Canadian House and Home magazine the kitchen with the blue panneling IKEA kitchen is from. In the process of working on my kitchen now!
Hello Julie. The Canadian House & Home IKEA kitchen was just on display at the Interior Design Show so I am going to say it might be in the March or April issue. But if you go online you can find information on the kitchen at these links.
Good luck with your kitchen!
