Toronto Interior Design Show 2017 – Part 2
All week long I’m bringing you the goods on the latest trends for home interiors in 2017 and beyond. My name is Emily. And I have an addiction. I have an addiction to lighting. It is very real.
I wish you could see me in the lighting department of a big box or specialty store. Sonny will be on one DIY mission or another and I will tell him “I’ll just be right back.” Then I’m gone, lost… looking up and blinded by the lights..…anyhow let’s get back on track. Lights!
Lighting in the style of Mid Century Modern continues to trend. The Sputnik fixture from lightmaker STUDIO or the Bubble Lamp fixture from EQ3 are just like pieces of art or sculpture for your ceiling. I’d take either of those over Beyoncé’s toilet any day!
The Toronto Interior Design show is also the place to see creative design ideas that inspire or simply puts a smile on your face. It doesn’t always take itself too seriously. How fun are these Top Hat Light Fixtures?! So Fred Astaire!
My curiosity led me to talk personally with the creator of this fixture by Brothers Dressler. At the centre of the fixture is a bicycle rim, spokes included! Wrapped around the bicycle rim are what the company calls Cuts Ups, which are recycled, upcycled and repurposed materials. Wood Slats have been steam bended in the style of the Thonet Bentwood Chair. Be on the look out for sustainable designs, not just in lighting fixtures but as a whole house notion. This light fixture would provide an element of fun to a games room, a bedroom for a teenager or as a conversation piece in a contemporary or industrial space.
Is anyone out there as addicted to lighting fixtures as I am? (Please say yes.)
Part 3 of trends from the Toronto Interior Design show will focus on Walls, Flooring and my (slight) brush with fame!
Yours in Décor,
