{Inspiration} Interior Design Show 2012

Sigh. I was so on the ball with my BlogPodium and Canadian Design Bloggers Meetup posts and then I completely dropped it with my roundup of IDS12. Oh well. Better late than never, right?

After BlogPodiumEmily-Jane, Britt, and I wandered around the show and took in all the gorgeous booths. Below are some of my favourite shots from the day.

All is calm at the Interior Design Show at 8am.

Chandeliers and pendant lights were all around IDS. I love, love, LOVE globe pendant lamps!
Elte's Chandeliers . AM Studio's Fibre Glass Balls, White Cubes and Porcelain Drop Chandeliers

I was heaven with all the reclaimed wood products being showcased.
Urban Tree Salvage's Log Rounds . an oak wine barrel turned wall mounted bathroom vanity by Native Trail . North on Sixty's raw wood table (the branches on top of the glass can be moved) and stools . Simple but gorgeous tables from Anazao

The How Do You Live? Exhibit featured a cut-away, 2-story building demonstrating multi-dwelling living. Each space was designed and decorated by a different Toronto-based design firm.
Mason's "Our Home and Native Land" . Youssef Hasbani of L’Atelier's outdoor "apple" . Casey Design Group & DesignWorks Studio's "The Dream Archive" . A glimpse of Jill Greaves Design's space

UpCountry's Halo Globetrekker Bookcases and Globes . Love Metropolis Living 's industrial pieces.

The neutral colours in Piero Lissoni's Lounge were so calming. And I can't stop looking at those low marble coffee tables!

The Cherish Auction, in support of the ONEXONE non-profit children's foundation, invited 21 interior, fashion and graphic designers and architects to re-imagine the Magis Julian Children's Chair.
(First Column) Hariri Pontarini Architects . Bruce Mau Design . Union31 . HBC (The Bay) . Joe Mimran (Joe Fresh)
(Second Column) Yabu Pushelberg . Arthur Mendonca
(Third Column) Philip Sparks . Piero Lissoni . Debbie Travis . David + Glenn Dixon . Giannone Petricone

By the end of the day, my feet were beat but it was totally worth it!
