IDS 2015 ~ Preview + Must See

Hello Thursday! Yours truly is seriously under the weather over the last couple of days and surely do hope that I will be well enough to enjoy the best design show of the year: Interior Design Show 2015.  Yes, IDS is in town again and with hundreds of exhibitors + A-list speakers gracing the centre stage, we are truly in for mega design treat.

Caesarstone has always put up a fun show at IDS and this year, this quartz manufacturing giant has teamed up with designer Philippe Malouin to dream up a play installation to emphasizing the strength, durability, and design of this extremely durable material. 

Another exciting feature is Cubitat, a 10' x 10' x 10' customizable "cube" that houses everything we need in modern living.  A kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, entertaining area, storage, and furniture by Mjolk, I surely can't wait to check out how this cube unfolds at the show! 

My favorite local furniture stores, Style Garage and Gus* Modern, are back at IDS and this year, they are featuring two new exciting additions to their collection: the Archive sofa (with beautiful walnut plywood frame and convertible to a daybed) and the lounge chair.  Be sure to try them out in person.

The beautiful Bell Table has always been one of my favorites.  I remembered loving it when I saw it in person in Paris.  Now there is a chance to meet the design genius who has combined beauty and function in the creation of this classic table.  More new exciting products including the High/Low containers, Oda lamps, Wooster Street and Bell lights will also be showcased at IDS!

Be sure to join Sebastian Herkner at 3pm on Friday and visit Avenue Road at Booth #1528!

Speaking about A-list speakers at the show this year, major design talent Thom Filicia will be joining us at the main stage on Saturday from 4pm to 5pm to share his design visions, inspirations, and more.

A quick visit to Thom's website had me mesmerized by all these beautiful and elegant spaces he's created.  I simply can't wait to meet him in person.

Jonathan Adler will also be gracing the main stage from 12pm to 1pm on Saturday to talk about how to bring happiness to your home.  Having a fun, glam, and livable space is key to JA's designs.  Saturday at 12pm, I know where I am going to be.  Do you?

One more stop you can't miss at IDS this year is to check out the brand new kitchen by IKEA: SEKTION.  This new exciting modular kitchen will be available in Canada real soon and to celebrate its arrival, IKEA Canada is not only doing one kitchen at IDS, but has included talented design editors from the Style at Home magazine and House & Home magazine to design the kitchen of their dreams with SEKTION.

Now I better rest up before the gala and spending the weekend at IDS.  Are you heading to the show this year? I would love to see you there!

  1. It's going to be a great show, I'm sure! Hope you feel better enough to enjoy it. I have to live vicariously through the bloggers who go. Unfortunately, I have to miss it this time. Darn. Darn. Darn.
