Alright, I’m back with some more pictures from the Interior Design Show. I’ve got a little more zip than yesterday so I’m going to add some words to my pictures!
First up we have one of the groupings put together in the By_Lissoni_Lounge. I’m sorry for the slightly wonky picture, but Lynda Reeves was sitting on one of the couches behind me interviewing someone and I was a little star struck (I did take a picture, but it’s not very good – her eyes are closed), so as I’d like the publisher and founder of House&Home magazine to like me I’ll keep it to myself).
I came across the booth for a store in Toronto called Snobstuff. I loved pretty much everything the owner was showing. All the pieces come from Southern Africa – the owner hails from Zimbabwe, and a portion of each sale goes to the Canadian Red cross to combat malaria. This store is now at the top of my list of must visit stores – if only to see what other great things she has.
This booth by UpCountry is lovely – I love the mix of warm worn leather and the industrial metal chests mixed with the crystal chandeliers, and of course the British flags.
Next up is Elte. They had a rather large booth, and unlike some others had prices listed on many items.
This next image was something that confused me a bit. Do these wire baskets look to anyone else like the ones you get golf balls in at the driving range? They do to me, but these ones were $115 each.
This was something that Elte did that I loved, and I think is a neat twist on the now (in my opinion) rather overdone subway sign art – individually framed street signs.
This ‘Spider Phoebe’ chair from Limitless with its bendable legs was rather popular. I wish I’d sat in it – it looks like it would be fun.
I loved this booth from Jean Gardner Designs – I’m pretty sure it was the curtains that did it.
This ottoman/coffee table made me want to rethink my current coffee table (from Gresham House furniture).
Last for today is the marvelous wall of peacock feathers that was used to back artwork in the How do you live? exhibit.
I’ve got just more IDS12 post for you tomorrow – I’ll show you some of the great Canadian designs from the Studio North exhibit.
