Sunday Reading | Highlights from IDS

Guest post by Renee Elliott

 The National Design Collective.

I eagerly headed to The Interior Design Show (IDS) yesterday ready to scout out new talent and discover unique designs. As anticipated, it was sensory overload with a ton of inspiration.

My absolute favourite part of IDS has always been the Studio North exhibit which features 60 Canadian and international designers showcasing one of a kind pieces and custom collections. And this year did not disappoint. Designs with interesting shapes, vivid colours that used a unique combination of materials really caught my eye.
