Toronto Interior Design Show 2013- The Aftermath!

Hey hey Everyone!

What a weekend!! That's the only way I can explain the show for us. We gave you a sneak peak of what The Felt Store team had up their sleeve's for this years IDS13 show! and let me tell you we could not be more thrilled, excited, happy, astonished and honoured with all the praise and love we got for our booth in particular our felt clocks!! They were such a great hit at the show everyone loved them! So much so that it got featured in Toronto Life Magazine and in Design Lines Magazine as one of the top products/installations to see at the show!! (yayyyy!!!)

So even though it was a crazy, hectic weekend for our team it was sooo worth it! Getting to talk to everyone on a one on one basis and share our love for felt. The show was full of felt designs and ideas that we soaked in like sponges! I have to give a special shout out to Tiptoe Rugs who won the award for best booth and the wonderful creations they made using our felt and our custom cutting machine. Aside from  showcasing well known designers the show displayed young artists who are still in school. Shout out to the modern, sleek designs of University of Alberta's Riverlot5 program using different textures in their display! We found an amazing furniture designer that loves to include felt in their sofa designs shout out to Montauk Sofa! and lastly (for this blog at least) Simply Green Baby who use our felt to create adorable designs! (Just realized there is too much felt talk going on lol....sorry guys!)

Aside from all the felt designs, there were some great artistic pieces such as the Blacklab Inc. booth that had  an amazing installation of coloured pencils and painted wood pieces. Earth Inc. was definitely a favourite retreat from all the hustle and bustle of the show...the booth just peacefully screamed serenity.
