Embrace hosting intimate groups

While large parties may be on hold for now, don’t let that stop you from creating an inviting space for guests. It’s time to embrace hosting intimate groups in your social bubble. Here’s all the inspiration you need.

A great entertaining idea is to set up different food and drink stations around your home to encourage mingling and avoid overcrowding one space. We love how this super-sized, mixed greenery sets the tone for this buffet-style tablescape.

Around the table

One of the easiest ways to create a beautiful tablescape is to choose a theme. This year, look within and let your personal style guide your tabletop choices.

Things to See at the IDS2018 Show

CAESARSTONE X SNARKITECTURE:

Caesarstone’s project with New York-based collaborative practice Snarkitecture for their 2018 Designer Program will focus on the icon of the modern home: the kitchen island. The collaboration will present a realistic and practical interpretation of Caesarstone, one that looks at the functionality of the kitchen, while drawing from Snarkitecture’s signature blend of architecture and art. IDS18 attendees will get a preview of the first instalment of the collaboration before a large-scale version debuts at Milan Design Week later this year.


DESIGNBOOM MART:

designboom brings back its international design market, offering 30 creative professionals from all over the world introducing their new products to the Canadian market. A unique interactive platform or emerging and established designers to test their new ideas, visitors can purchase the self-produced or limited edition pieces directly from the designers. Expect to be drawn in by the innovative design of the booth, painted in designboom yellow.


THE FUTURE OF CANADIAN LIVING – TREEHOUSE

Multiple-time Interior Design Show Best Booth winner, AyA Kitchens and Baths, has confirmed that it will join forces with U31 Design and Cleaf by Weston Premium Woods for The Future of Canadian Living. Inspired by the culturally diverse makeup of Toronto, The Future of Canadian Living will feature a series of pod-like spaces to resemble a 15-foot high treehouse. Through the intersection of texture, height and space, each pod will represent archetypal characters of traditional rooms – a kitchen, a bathroom and a library.


MIELE’S DIALOG OVEN REVOLUTIONIZES THE FUTURE KITCHEN

Miele presents an absolute world’s first: The Dialog oven with innovative M Chef Technology revolutionizes the art of cooking. Miele household appliances have always stood for the very best: premium quality, outstanding durability – made for those who love to be on the leading edge. Discover a pioneering cooking appliance with revolutionary technology that sets new standards in culinary excellence through in-person product demos.


HOW BRIGHT IS OUR FUTURE?:

Visitors will encounter a dark forest of blade-like fixtures at this thought-provoking exhibit that asks them to react to the most promising and terrifying changes that will form part of our future. Through touch-technology, the exhibit will measure an emotional response to the changes that will define our future, and share it through a visual experience within the installation.


SARAH RICHARDSON X MONOGRAM:

You don’t have to travel to Italy to experience gourmet pizza, you can enjoy it at home with Monogram Canada. Celebrity designer, Sarah Richardson, is creating two custom gourmet kitchens with the luxury appliance brand, including one inspired by a couture pizzeria featuring the Monogram Pizza Oven at this year’s show. Exclusive to the brand, the Monogram pizza oven is designed to match the capabilities of the best restaurant pizza ovens, giving homeowners restaurant-quality performance in their own kitchens. Drop by the booth to see the new oven in person and enjoy delicious pizza samples (select times).


MAKER:

Maker returns for its fourth instalment at IDS18, curated by designmilk. Maker features the work of artisanal North American design stars who produce their own work in small batches with limited distribution. This year’s Makers include 1925Workbench, Atelier Bussiere, Charuk & Ford, Christopher Solar Designs, Kastella, Kroft, Luxi Studioworks, Miles & May, Objects and Ideas, and PELLE.


STUDIO NORTH & PROTOTYPE:

Studio North and Prototype is the marketplace to showcase custom work and limited-edition collections to the design industry, media and a discerning design audience. Over 65 Canadian and international designers of the highest calibre present one-off and custom collections of furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles and surface design in a gallery-like setting. Studio North and Prototype participants are provided with the opportunity to have their work reviewed by a panel of international industry leaders and design experts.


THE CLOVER PAVILION BY ONTARIO WOOD:

The IDS18 ON Wood Display is the next step in an ongoing applied research into light-weight, hybrid spatial structures inspired by natural and biological systems. The Clover Pavilion is a grouping of partially enclosed floral display areas that feature tension-activated plywood petals. The project seeks to infuse wood design, one of Ontario’s enduring craft traditions, with experimental ideas and techniques from engineering and material systems theory. Technology and craft are developed together to produce a rich sequence of spaces that are responsive to visitors and highlight the varied Ontario Wood prototypes and artifacts on display.


CANADIAN BY NATURE: THE BEST IN NEW ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of IDS, this exhibition brings together some of the most talented designers and studios, whether practicing in Canada or abroad that represent the best of Canadian design today. Curated by Paul Makovsky, Vice President of Design of Metropolis magazine, the exhibition showcases the work of over 50 architecture and design studios–both emerging and established–to explore how considerations of sustainability, conscientious uses of materials and design philosophies can create projects and products that truly stand out, in terms of both their aesthetics and design.
