IDS14 Recap - Part One. Ikea Canada, Sarah Richardson Design & Aerin via Cocoon Furnishings

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

You guys, after going through the photos from IDS14 I have to say I wish I could go back.  It's pretty amazing how you see things so differently through the lens.

I'm super excited to share some photos with you today in my first IDS14 recap.  I've decided to break it up into a couple of different posts.  Today, it's all about Ikea, Sarah Richardson Design and Aerin Lauder.

The highly anticipated Aerin collection which is being exclusively sold in Canada through Cocoon Furnishings, an Oakville interior design showroom, was a pure joy to see.  Honestly, the entire space was absolutely brilliant.  The Sanger Chandelier is probably the most gorgeous piece I've ever laid eyes on.  The beautiful grain of the wood in the tables along with the clean lines & soft curves of the accessories and coordinating furnishings brought together a luxurious space of timeless elegance. Seriously the stuff of my dreams.

I'm always eager to see what Sarah Richardson and her team will bring to the table.  Their ability to mix  fabrics & patterns is so admirable.  Truthfully, what they did was pure genius.  To be able to have so much going on in one small space without having it feel overwhelming, actually, it was quite the opposite for me, was simply amazing.  I adored the graceful fabric used as the backdrop and especially loved the fabric covering the bulletin board paired with nailhead trim.  I'd have to say that my absolute favourite pieces were the chairs and the bench, oh goodness, that bench, which is custom Sarah Richardson piece, it's perfect.  Gorgeous lines and perfect proportions, I die.  Moving on.  The team showed how fabric can truly transform a space, from using it on pillows, to curtains, to recovering vintage pieces or a perhaps a ladder if you choose to do so.  But what they proved is that fabric can most definitely step any piece up a notch and can be used in a variety of ways that many wouldn't think of.  You can view the entire fabric line here.

I think it's pretty much unanimous that Ikea Canada knocked it out of the park yet again this year. The extremely popular display did not disappoint  Lacquer, brass, gold, clustered lighting and an absolutely brilliant mix of furnishings, brought this space together.  Kitchens will forever grab a hold of my heart strings and this kitchen did just that.  Ikea Canada proved that thinking outside of the box can not only help you create a space full of personality but one of sheer beauty.

In my next IDS14 post, I will be sharing snippets of more booths & pretty that caught my eye.  There was SO much to see!  This will be an IDS14 week on the blog and I love that!
