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!


1. Elte

An old favourite, Elte’s booth was massive and beautifully furnished. My fave part of their design was how they showcased their rugs on the walls, as artwork. 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.

Ola! There’s something magical about dodging a week or two of Canadian winter to vacation in paradise. During a recent stay at a picturesque resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, I was instantly taken by the romantic appeal of the resort’s tropical decor.

It’s amazing how much that sense of home was created through the details. Of course it’s the family that makes a house a home but in my mom’s new condo, so much of what makes it a beautiful place for her came in the form of our design choices. We tried to strike a balance between incorporating things that were reminiscent of the home she shared with my dad her whole life and adding new things that would in some ways help to guide her along a new path.
