Interior Design Show Toronto, presented by Miele, is back Jan. 18 to 21, 2024 at the Toronto Convention Centre, for its 25th year. IDS celebrates and promotes the best in global and Canadian design, from emerging designers to legacy brands. It is a platform to launch never-before-seen products and design solutions for the future.
On the show floor, besides the 250-plus exhibitors showcasing their latest products, you can also experience unique designed spaces. One feature is The Future Neighbourhood, designed to inspire and simulate conversation. Six design teams – including Interior Architects (IA), Noam Hazan, Safoura Zahedi, a collaboration between SDI Design and Q4 Architects, SVN, and Syllable Design – explore how interior design will continue to adapt and shape our lives. The inspiration for this feature is the city of Toronto. Visitors will walk down a central “street” then enter each installation, experiencing design solutions to a problem, including the housing crisis, aging in place and the introduction of technology into different interiors.
Near the entrance to the show floor, attendees can visit Select – an exclusive and invite-only furniture feature that will display some of the trendiest and noteworthy premium furniture pieces on the market.
Then there’s Modern Prefab, an exhibit of modern prefabricated buildings. As homes become a mixture of life, work and everything in between, people are looking for new ways to expand their space. These new structures offer unique solutions to add modern luxury and functionality to open spaces.
Favourite exhibits, Studio North and Prototype, support emerging Canadian designers by displaying their work on the show floor in The District.
The main stage keynote program, included with a show pass, is a forum to discuss the latest issues in the interior design industry, as well as a look forward at how the innovations of today will tackle problems and create solutions for the future. Speakers include famous Canadian and international names in interior design and architecture, such as Lynda Reeves, founder of House & Home Magazine.
The biggest design show in Canada gets started with an opening night kick-off party on Jan. 18 at 7 pm. Celebrate design as the trade floor transforms into a unique party experience with three DJs and performances from Canada’s Drag Race alumni, Miss Moço and Tynomi Banks, on the main stage.
