Poppytalk had an awesome time at IDSwest this year and was super impressed with the independent designers this year. Our friend, Janis Nicolay of Pinecone Camp offered to take a few photo's of some what I saw. ~Jan
Vancouver was buzzing this weekend with all shades of design at IDSwest - a fantastic interior design show. I spent a day chatting with, and taking pics of, some amazing talent.
I always love checking out the "Future Masters", selected by Artsy Dartsy. New designers, creating beautiful and unique products. Above were a few of my faves. From top left: "Ossa" folding chair by Krystin Clarke, cabinets by Katie Mah, Maia Rowan, Jesse Cullen, ceramic sculptures by Sarah Peloquin, the Future Masters under the turquoise net.
Alex Henderson of Henderson Dry Goods. Mirrors, trays, decorations and jewelry, with beautiful laser-cut etchings.
Table by Michael and Tanja of Mth Woodworks. Table made from salvaged wood and organic resin.
Every year a designer will create the "bar", a very necessary feature at any design event! This year Omer Arbel, of Bocci, created one the most popular spots at the show. Pretty much designed entirely with the "Bocci 28d", the newest creation from Omer. I love these so much. The top image is part of the bar as well.
Paula Gonzalez is the talent behind "Phaulet". She creates patterns with photoshop then transfers the patterns, digitally, to fabric. So pretty.
Christian Woo uses only FSC certified hardwood to create his stunning pieces. His "cluster" tables and new storage units were huge hits. I can definitely see a collection of the yellow, grey and wood storage units in my office...or at least dream about seeing them.
Pretty, wheel-thrown ceramics by Cathy Terepocki. So adorable. Love the map of Canada and the gardener with wheelbarrow.
Well that's a wrap up of IDSwest! If you have some time, do check out the links - so much goodness.
