trendspotting: african style

If I could have awarded a booth at the 2009 Interior Design Show with a big red ribbon reading "Most Inspirational", it surely would have gone to Snob. Almost as if we were drawn there magnetically, Samantha, Lynn Spence and I converged on Snob's uber-exotic show space at the same time, and I'm sure anyone around us thought we were nuts. (Yes, there was that much "ooh-ing" and "ahh-ing"!) Snob is a Toronto retail destination that specializes in past and present African design — a HUGE trend that's poised to peak this summer, methinks — and the booth was a vertitable trove of owner Denise Zidel's truly stunning finds. Above, you'll see just a few of the African artefacts on display during the show, arranged on a new shelving system that Denise has designed. Imagine that unit in a small apartment or condo being used as a barely-there room divider! Ooh! The stitched hide rug is also so beautiful — and that's saying something, because normally I'm not the biggest fan of hide. Here's Snob's iconic "Cow Chair". I love the webbed seat! This floor lamp was a showstopper as well. Check out more of Snob's trendsetting treasures by visiting online or at the Toronto retail location! Snob , Toronto, 388 Carlaw Ave., Unit 202F, 416-778-8778
