Interior design professionals and firms from all around the world gather at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to showcase and inspire with the latest in interior design trends at the annual Interior Design Show taking place this weekend. This year’s Interior Design Show 2014 focuses on lighting with the theme of “See the Light” and getting the right lighting in interior design can set the perfect tone.

Must-see exhibits include IKEA, Miele, Caesarstone, Andrew Richards Designs, Solo House and Korhani Home (featuring designer rugs from the fashion label Korhani with appearances in Toronto Fashion Week).

Personally I always enjoy seeing the Enomatic wine system (restaurants in Toronto that have this innovative wine dispensing system include Destingo and Touro Brazilian Steakhouse).

I really liked the Solo Home exhibit featuring the latest technology including a 4K HDTV and Sennheiser home theatre installed by Bay Bloor radio. A Solo Home like this starts from $93,500
