BLANCO’s Design Council, an elite group of designers/bloggers toured Toronto last week for Canada’s Interior Design Show (IDS11). The Design Council toured BLANCO’s SILGRANIT facility in Toronto – where a majority of North American SILGRANIT sinks are made. Designers were treated to a sneak peak of the new SILGRANIT II Truffle sink collection, displayed for the first time at IDS11 to rave reviews from the design community. Grey was the “IT” color at IDS11. Note: Truffle will launch in the U.S. in April.
Toronto’s IDS offered a wonderful array of home furnishings exhibitors, seminars and more. Beyond home goods manufacturers, there was a wide selection of craftspeople and artisans who showed off their work and the flair that makes Canadian design completely unique from both the European and American shows we’ve attended. (Take natural materials like exposed live edge wood, fur and antler… mix with modern and Nordic design elements… add Victorian influences like tea, crystal and color… and it’s uniquely CANADIAN!)
