A vocal piece dining table by Moeski Design Agency .
Like a fairy tale reception for Alice in Wonderland x Once Upon A Time. Designs by Robert Blaney Design.
Rustic dinner table by Sophie Burke Design.
Skulls and Gold gothic chinaware and setting by Amanda Forrest Interior Design Group. I'm not normally a fan of skulls. But somehow they've really made it work and it quite appealing.
This fun loving Modern Lucy chic table setting has got my heart thumping and worthy of a wedding setting. Design by filosophi event and planning design.
Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas tree...
Wood works table for BC.
Antler chairs !
All was fun and beautiful until we turned the corner to the booth of pretentious cushions where the hosts wanted nothing to do with their guests. No wonder business is quiet.
Bachelor of Design students from University of Alberta came down to share a few cool industrial designs. My favorite was the Poke Me lamp. Each poke brightens the silicon ball and turns it off.
Stop by the district area sponsored by the Straight for a few goodies to take home!
Phaulet and it's fun quirky cushions.
Mitani bedding for toddlers and adults. You will probably notice them at Vancouver Special on Main Street.
Forest & Waves well designed fabric and paper goods inspired by the outdoor. Seriously how awesome is the hiker x Forest tote?
Sandpiper Studio got me swooning over these mushroom jars. If they have a few polka dots, it would take us back to the Super Mario Days.
Ram Sherpa chair.
By Nature for your natural indoor planting.
Too dumb for New York. Too Ugly for LA.... Perfect for Vancouver? Brought to you by the Union Wood Co. working primarily with reclaimed wood.
FSC flooring for the eco-friendly wide wood flooring by PurParket. The slate color is really growing on me.
Hope you've enjoy your stay. What was your favorite part of IDSWest13? Let us know!
