More from the Interior Design Show
Despite my camera battery running out midway through my second trip to the Interior Design Show on Friday, I've still got a few goodies to share!
Let's start with some more fabulous lighting - here's the Klaus By Nienkamper booth - love how they look like sparkling dandelions!
For a more affordable interpretation on the glittery orb look, Ikea hung a bunch of their PS Maskros lights over their booth.
And, I adore this fixture by Gregor Herman. The hand-blown glass balls are surprisingly sturdy - I was tentative to even hold one, but he clinked the strands together without fear! I love the different sizes and colours, and the way the light reflects through the fixture.
Textiles were also, of course, huge at the show - loved the "A New Era: Evolution in Rug Artistry" display, featuring the winning entries of 8 x 10 rugs, which were auctioned off through silent auction to benefit the Rugmark Foundation (to provide education for rug-making communities) and Dare Arts (providing local art-based programs for at-risk children).
The small space design was also incredible - 10 x 10 rooms that showed what you could do with a shed in your backyard (or that minuscule back bedroom)! This calming retreat was one of the entries.
And, last but not least for today, is Ministry of the Interior's "Rolling Hills" concept space, designed for contemplation and social interaction.
The furnishings were sparse and soothing, and I just adored the Himmeli lighting, above.
