IKEA at IDS 14

This weekend the Interior Design Show took place in Toronto.  Each year this show features all the new and upcoming designs for 2014-15.  One showcase that always stands out is IKEA Canada.  Last year this is what they featured.

This concept kitchen was phenomenal! I loved the 85!!! HEKTAR pendant lights used over the about repetition!  The design featured IKEA products mixed with antique elements encased in warehouse windows, an exposed brick wall and a grand fireplace that created a rich and eclectic design.  This industrial Scandinavian lux design was so good that IKEA won the Gold Booth Award!  So, at this year's show, what could they possibly showcase that would top this?

Drum roll please...

Can you believe this is IKEA?  Absolutely stunning!  The designers took inspiration from 18th century France, mixing classical wall paneling and antiques with modern touches. 

I also had to include this photo of their concept bathroom.  The gold mirrored tile was a showstopper!  What a bold statement!  And surprisingly $9.50 per sheet (1.2 sq/ft). Could you handle all this glamour???

Well, they did it again!  IKEA Canada won the Gold Booth Award again this year! 
Hopefully, I have provided some inspiration for you.  It's easy to see that by incorporating items from IKEA, you can really create that designer look.  It's all about thinking outside of the box!  If you need any help or decorating advice, contact me.
