Bringing together internationally recognized designers and avant-garden concepts from around the world, the Interior Design Show returns to Toronto in the new year. Kicking off with an opening party on January 18, the three-day show provides an annual catalyst for millions of dollars spent on design, while positioning Toronto as a key player in the global design scene.
Following the inaugural party, the show kicks off in earnest with January 19th’s Professional Trade Day, followed by the weekend’s Globe Style Saturday and House & Home Sunday. With hundreds of exhibitors set to shine a spotlight on the best new products and furniture, IDS Toronto will also introduce a diverse range of speakers, with Toronto’s own George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg recently announced as next year’s International Guests of Honour.
