Toronto’s Interior Design Show shapes the industry for the upcoming year, showcasing the latest trends in design and decor, and attracting interior design professionals from all over North America.
This year, we noted some emerging trends to inspire you with your own home or condo.
In the month of February, we’ll be sharing our favourites on Instagram @BazisInc and on Facebook, so be sure to follow us for more.
New Patterns and Textures
Some of this year’s most exciting exhibits showcased unique patterns and textures in stone. Cosentino featured dramatic countertops in natural tones, punctuated with large vein patterns. This year, they introduced a new “suede” texture that feels warmer to the touch and offers a matte sheen.
From Cambria, Brittanica Gold was introduced, featuring new colours of copper, fog and translucent greige on a cream background. It has a more traditional feel and is striking against the cooler colours that have dominated in recent years.
IDS featured home furnishings with natural materials throughout. While the materials are simple: wood, stone, and metal, the results are polished, not rustic.
New in Colour
Some of the most eye catching exhibits at IDS this year featured textiles and woven art in a variety of colours. It’s exciting to envision a contemporary room in a neutral palette reimagined with the addition of area rugs and accents in rich blues and reds.
Pastels were also seen throughout the show, with furnishings, accessories, and paints in soft pinks and blues, accented with cream and off-white.
Sharp angles were present throughout the show with geometric designs in furnishings, lighting, art, and wall coverings.
