2018 Design Trends Come Alive at IDS18

Toronto, Canada

Interior Design Show (IDS)

Toronto, Canada, 2018-01-12 - 

Since opening its doors in 1999, the Interior Design Show (IDS18) has become a design authority showcasing the latest design trends and innovations from Canada and internationally. Combining hundreds of exhibitors, a line-up of international speakers and a full schedule of expert-lead seminars, IDS18 doesn’t follow the trends – it premiers them. As the show prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary this January 18-20, 2018, IDS18 has compiled the trends that are shaping the industry in the year to come. From floor tiles to ceiling fixtures, 2018 promises to be a year of leading-edge innovation. 


“As we enter our milestone 20th year, we are paying homage to Canada’s past and the culture that has shaped IDS for the past two decades,” Karen Kang, National Director, IDS Canada. “This year’s theme, Future Forward, will look ahead with predictions on how design will change how we live.”

 

Canada by Design

IDS18 is celebrating Canadian designers in a big way. The show will explore the commonalities that could define what Canadian design is: a sensibility that favours restraint over excess, an appreciation of a rationalist and minimalist approach, and a respect for function, materials, and craftsmanship. This year Canadian work will be highlighted by many native design companies. Trends from modern day living, handcrafted hardwood and affordable home furnishings will all be on display. 


The Ultimate Kitchen

As the old saying goes, “the kitchen is the heart of the home.” In thinking about the future of this space, IDS18 will focus on the innovation, high tech appliances and quality finishes found. New materials and textures will add that extra slick finish the kitchens of the future. 


Refined Ruggedness

Hard surfaces with a harsher mixed stone look will be the go-to-trend for homeowners looking to make a statement. Expect to see unconventional materials, such as concrete, take over everything from flooring to countertops. 


Light it Up

Lighting continues to shine at IDS18! Designers from all corners of the globe are debuting fresh interpretations and innovative ideas to bring more than just light to a room. 


Curves

The new shape trending this year is modern curves which add soft lines to contemporary spaces. Exhibitors will showcase distinctive artistic shapes, detail craftsmanship and inspiring ideas for living spaces.


Modern Wood

Gone are the days of live edge. This year’s wood pieces are sophisticated and sleek – a true testament to the relationship between 2018 craftsmanship and contemporary design. 


Statement Details

Like statement jewelry pieces in fashion, jewelry inspired details are popping up in the home. Lighting, furnishings, tiles and hardware are all taking on geometric cut-outs and peeks of metal detailing.
