editor's pick: textiles at the one of a kind christmas show

By: Elaine Song

If there are two things I must have in my home, it is toss cushions and throw blankets. So it’s no wonder I get drawn to every textile booth at the One of a Kind Christmas Show. Here are my three favourites from the show this year. 1 Nicole Tarasick Nicole’s a Toronto-based graphic designer that is no stranger to Toronto, or Canada for that matter. And it shows. While I’ve seen Nicole’s work for years now, this year she comes to the show armed with new designs from her Canadiana collection, as well as a new colour – rust! I love the clean simplicity and patriotic spirit instilled in her designs and I always make sure to check out her booth whenever I’m at a One of a Kind show and STYLEGARAGE.   2 iDENTITY Another design company that focuses its branding on the Canadian design identity. Obviously specializing in t-shirts, it was the throw pillows that caught my eye. Particularly the classic Hudson Bay striped cushions – made from actual vintage Hudson’s Bay multi-stripe point blankets.   3 Avril Loretti Avril Loretti, founder and designer of Modern Home, designs colourful and artful decor and accessories. Her bold and graphic prints range from playful to Bohemian to mod styles, making her booth a delightfully eye-catching one. Which textile is YOUR favourite? {Photography: Elaine Song}
