1. Metropolis Living 

With so many quirky items to catch your eye, it was impossible not to stop and pay attention to Metropolis Living’s booth. I’m a sucker for their vintage industrial vibe. If you are too, then pop on over their website and marvel at the creativity behind their pieces.

If you can relate to – or sympathize with – any of that, you’ll understand why my heart skipped more than just a beat when I spotted the new Prairie Tables [retails for $595.00 CDN at ModernKaribou.ca] from Canadian-based furniture design company, Gus* Modern.

the best of ids12: furniture

I’m sharing the highlights from IDS12 in a series of four posts, organized by category, over the next couple of weeks. Don’t forget to check out the first two posts in this series, rounding up the best woodwork and textiles.

For today, let’s talk furniture!

This gave them more presence and attention than they would have received on the floor alone because their booth was packed with people all day long.
