IDS10 - opening night highlights

By:
Good morning, all! Thanks so much to my guest blogger Margot Austin, who must have pulled an all-nighter to deliver her post below on the lovely lighting at last night's launch gala for the Interior Design Show. Margot's got a tough job ahead of her, as she's been given the honour of judging booths for the IDS's "best in show" awards later this weekend -- not an easy decision by any means! Having said that, year after year I'm staggered by the beauty of Snob's booth. Snob owner Denise Zidel's passion for African design is absolutely contagious, and with her exotic collection at IDS10, she's truly outdone herself. It's one of those booths that require you to stop for a few minutes and let your eyes soak in all the gorgeous little details. Here are a few of my Snob faves... console This orange leather console table is to die for... The nailhead trim runs along every edge, and the stiletto-legs are incredibly sexy. What a fantastic statement piece for my front hall... I'd even pair it with that perennial entryway fave of mine, the orange metal coatrack from Urban Outfitters. (Yes, I'm obsessed with high-impact entryways.) ostrichHow about a little plume-ination? This ostrich feather floor lamp diffuses a beautifully soft, warm glow. egyptian...But the piece de resistance at Snob IMO is this series of Egyptian pierced metal pendants. The intricate detail on these hanging light fixtures is art gallery-worthy. I just don't know which shape I'm more in love with -- the globe, or the teardrop. I'm dying to see the teardrops arranged in multiples running the length of a rectangular dining table, or three globes of different sizes suspended at different heights over a circular dining table... Even if you can't make it down to the IDS this weekend, you can always check out Denise's spectacular showroom at Snob, 388 Carlaw Ave., Suite 202F, Toronto; 416-778-8778.
