IDS 2010

The Interior Design Show 2010 kicked off this year at a new location - the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  The newest and most innovative in international and Canadian products are annually presented by 300 exhibitors, cutting edge exhibits plus over twenty-five Canadian and International design professionals, celebrities and visionaries in keynote presentations, seminars and workshops . . . including House & Home Editor Suzanne Dimma, Interior Designer Brian Gluckstein, Miami-based interior and fashion designer Barbara Hulanicki, Journalist Ingrid Abramovitch and many more . . . The ultimate ideas, products and trends. The Interior Design Show/IDS 10 is Canada’s largest contemporary design event.
Here are some of the beautiful bathroom ideas featured.....

Watermarks had a  fabulous display featuring a great "luxe" look. I loved this wall hung vanity/sink and glitzy mirror.  Unfortunately I am not particularly great at taking photos and this does not do it justice. For a really good look, drop into Watermarks in Etobicoke or Burlington to see just how gorgeous this is!

I am in love with this incredibly decadant and matching lav from Axor. I could really imagine relaxing in a space like this.

This tub from Wetstyle is very minimalist in styling and has coordinating sink/cabinets and wall hung storage cabinet.  I could imagine this in a very modern space or in a country retreat where the natural wood would fit right in.

Tolie Funiture & Accents had a contemporary display in the current popular Black & White scheme with pops of red for pizazz. 

Napoleon Fireplaces had many gas and
electric styles on display, many that were
contemporary in design.

Andrew Richard Designs offers both ready-made and custom pieces, arranged in a myriad of vignettes to offer suggestions and inspiration.Their furniture brings unparalleled innovation, style and comfort to outdoor custom-designed furniture.  I always look forward to their booth at IDS because it brings some "warm weather" ideas to us in the midst of our long winter.

This is an interesting new product from Surface Innovation Inc in Parry Sound.  It is a flexible Slate Veneer made from real slate and attached to several different backings.  This can be used on many surfaces and is an easy product to install for the "Do-It-Yourselfer".  They have plans to have a supplier in the GTA by spring.

IDS is more than just a show. It is the total design experience
