Interior Design Show 2009 exhibit preview

I will be attending the Interior Design Show for I want – I got. I’ll have my trusty photographer, Paul Baik with me. I’m really looking forward to it. It’s rare that I have a professional photographer at my disposal. I’m really looking forward to bringing you the scoop.

Here are some of the exhibits I’m looking forward to this week.

1. Concept Spaces

Five of Canada’s most innovative and inspiring design firms have been assembled, each of whom represent very different design disciplines – production and retail design; industrial design, luxury architecture, luxury residential interior design, and landscape architecture.

Representing a combination of emerging and under the radar designers coupled with established design celebrities, the five selected firms share some things in common – innovation, inspiration and talent…and for you this February, they will each design and create a living space that reflects their own personal notion of good design, free of client demands or budget restrictions…we hope that you enjoy the trip.
