A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the 2017 Interior Design Show here in Toronto on behalf of The Creators Commune! I attended the opening party for IDS 2016 a year prior, so I had a good grasp on what I was in for: an overwhelming amount of visual inspiration.
There’s no way to absorb it all so I went in with a few things in mind that I wanted to pay attention for: colour, interesting art and eco friendly design/products. I was thrilled to find plenty of all three and am excited to share some of my favourites with you here:
PI Fine Art
Based in Toronto and originally named Posters International, this art publishing house has been doing well at what they do since 1976. Their website showcases a huge offering of prints, limited edition prints and posters. They also offer custom created art and have an expert team that includes an art director, graphic and visual artists.
With a small booth at the back of the show, this gorgeous custom printed wall covering and trio of prints caught my eye and drew me right in.
PI Fine Art
This booth caught my eye because a) their products are beautiful and b) they proudly showcased their environmental initiatives.
Produits Neptune offers “Canada-made bathroom products—bathtubs, showers, glass doors, sinks, toilets and faucets [and are t]he first company in North America to earn certification ECORESPONSIBLE.”
You can read more about their environmental initiatives and commitment to sustainable development on their website here: produitsneptune.com/en/environnement/

DXV American Standard
This was by far my favourite exhibitor this year. These bathroom vignettes were designed by Beth and Carolina of Pulp Design Studios and have everything that I love and long for in a bathroom: gorgeous stone, a luxurious tub, a fireplace, great wall paper and art in shades of green with accessories adding pops of gold and fuchsia. THE BEST. I was tempted to stay and make myself at home.
Stay tuned for some more of my IDS favourites over the next few weeks!
