French Dressing

New and noted at Montreal's 20th annual SIDIM.

The 20th annual Salon International du Design D’Intrieur de Montral, held at Place Bonaventure, has come and gone. Those of us expecting banners and brouhaha – or at the very least a sense of occasion – were disappointed. An underpopulated floor, poor signage and awkwardsettings added up to a show that was somber rather than celebratory. Even the advertised “specials” – including eco-design created by 20 graduate students, a display combining Quebec fashion and interior design, and the 3rd edition of Design Africa – seemed perfunctory.

Clearly, SIDIM could use a shot of adrenaline and an infusion of razzle-dazzle. Cool new designs, such as those featured here, deserve a better showcase.
