last week I visited the SIDIM (Salon worldwide du style Intérieur de Montréal) style show as well as I discovered a few gems:
1. From DuRoy comes vinyl flooring that I swear looks so much like genuine plank flooring that I was fooled. They even have the new greyed oak colour that we love.
2. At Dismo worldwide I saw the new Tototo chair in crayon colours including this bright citron.
3. I discovered a excellent screen of new Kohler sinks at Thalassa Domicile. My preferred was the scrubed brass sink, perfect for a powder space performed in an exotic style. It’s called Kamala.
4. There were fascinating glass shower stalls with doors that slide across instead of opening on a hinge. The tracking system was smooth as well as enabled for different shapes as well as configurations of stalls. The business was called Kinetik. go to Fleurco to see more.
5. For the kitchen area there were spigot taps, or “pot fillers,” in the newest oil scrubed bronze surface that I had not seen before, from Moen. We’re just figuring out the kitchen area in the Showhouse we are building in support of the Princess Margaret hospital Foundation. The style of this year’s home is “modern farmhouse” as well as I can see this tap working perfectly along with the matching sink faucet as well as sprayer.
6. have you heard about Fatboy? These huge square, flat pillows are light as a feather as well as can be molded to in shape your body, offereing outstanding support as well as comfort. It’s the old bean bag idea utilizing contemporary technology.
Here I’m unwinding with Kirby Miller from HH Media as well as the two “Fat Boys” Denis Dumas as well as Michel Abitbol. I won’t be putting these chairs in my living space any type of time soon, however I might see them in a dorm room, a playroom, kid’s bedroom or very first apartment.
7. This tracking system for hanging art is discreet as well as contemporary looking. The business is called AS Hanging, as well as they bring many styles ranging from simple, industrial-looking systems to more refined residential syles in many different finishes.
8. This attractive upholstered chair is from Montreal-based DIB Design. They have this traditional tufted slipper chair in a wonderful generous scale, as well as their insurance claim to fame is a simple Parson’s-style dining chair that is engineered so it does not requirement any type of cross supports between the legs — and yet it’s super strong.
9. Finally, I was influenced by the idea space at this year’s show. Called “Canoe House”, it was designed by canühome to look like an inverted canoe with lovely blond wood ribs developing the rounded roofline.
Inside was a total “house” with a kitchen, dining area, excellent space as well as a bedroom that included stackable laundry appliances as well as wardrobe hanging as well as storage. Of program whatever was made from sustainable materials, as well as the whole house was eco, portable, convertible, cost-effective as well as energy-efficient.
The kitchen area was outstanding, designed as well as developed by AYA Kitchens as well as Baths.
To checked out more about the house, see canühome.
It was not a huge show, however there were some excellent finds, and finest of all, I might walk the whole show in a few hours
and my feet were not killing me at the end!
I’ve saved a few kitchen area discovers for my page in home & Home Magazine. It’s all about my enthusiasm — kitchen design.
Look for it in the September issue, on sale August 4th.
