Interior Design Show 2017

#IDS17 Toronto - design unfolded begins with the Opening Night Party where we "celebrate the change makers, innovators and disruptors" for all the latest inspirations. The design event is on from Jan 19-22 at the North building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and features David Adjaye as the International Guest of Honour. I met some great interior designers including Lisa Coady, above left.
Shop, create, explore and learn is the mantra as we take in all the exhibits at the 19th annual show. The booze is flowing, the vibe is happening and the show awaits. Grab some friends and experience the Interior Design Show presented by National Bank! "IDS brings together the newest and most innovative in international and Canadian design. With three full days of inspirational exhibits, influential speakers and leading products, IDS is not just a fair - it's a total design experience.
Having fun at the Caesarstone installation

'Stone Age Folk brings' award winner Jaime Hayon, one of Time Magazine's most relevant creators, and his Caesarstone quartz installations in a "whimsical universe inspired by the natural and mythical worlds, fauna and folklore". You can find the area because of the crowds that gather around the impressive set.
The party started at 7pm and continued until 11pm with the first sneak peek of the exhibitors that have setup for the show which continues on Friday, January 20 with Trade Day and into the weekend when it opens to the public. A portion of the Opening Night Party ticket sales will go to Habitat for Humanity GTA. Besides the amazing furniture, fixtures and accessories you can experience immersive designer spaces in The Lab, at the Partisans Factory and with Jaime Hayon's Caesarstone kaleidoscopic stone age folk installations.
Friday's Professional Trade Day offered the AZURE Trade Day Talks with a line of speakers that will discuss current design trends and inspire new ideas beginning with leading architect and designers Nika Zupanc, Jaime Hayon and David Adjaye. Visitors can also take in Trade Day seminars for an additional fee.

The weekend brings Globe Style Saturday (Jan 21) - "Where do we find inspiration?" and House and Home Sunday (Jan 22) - "What's trending?". Globe Style will give visitors insider knowledge of design with experts, critics and editors including designer Amanda Nisbet in conversation with the much celebrated Jeanne Beker, columnist for Globe Style. House and Home is your chance to meet international design celebrities along with House & Home editors for shows The Hot List, Top Design Tips and Tricks and Decorating 101.
