IDS 2009 Review- White Hot!

Design was definitely inspirational in Toronto at the Direct Energy Center last week.
Here are some of the highlights of the 11th Toronto Interior Design Show (IDS09):

A Swarovski crystal lighted swing amidst a dark ethereal metal forest was the creation of the talented firm Munge Leung as a 'Crystal Clear' display sponsored by Audi and Allure Magazine.

Powell and Bonnell created this synthesis of water, light, metal and
Swarovski crystal for the 'Crystal Clear' display.

Hot colour combinations - fuschia, orange, red, against white. White with pop colours was
a prevailing theme in this year's show.

'Red Lounge' area sponsored by Grand Marnier, buzzing with inspired visitors on Trade day.
The Warp chair by Atelier Jacob.

Ikea's room displays reveal the chic versatility of their products.

Another white display in front of the Krups Stage at the show.

The elaborate Chair Source display reveals their fabulous selection of chairs, and once again, we see the chic modern look of white on traditional chairs with geometric prints. Below, a gorgeous
display of products from Casa Life.

Nudesign, a synthesis of Aya Kitchens, Glen Peloso design and Wolf/Sub Zero have banded together to create this fabulous kitchen!

Over the top design by 64th and Queen, part of the 5 X 5: 5 Designers, 5 Inspired Spaces.
It was a spectacular show this year! Stay tuned for highlights of conversations I had with five top designers on renovations!


  1. Very cool event, I like the white kitchen!


  2. I went last year, wish I had booked to go this year, it looks like it was a great show.
