The famed Interior Design Show (IDS) is coming back to Vancouver for its 18th year with a premier showcase of new products and furniture, superstar designers, and avant-garde concepts from North America and beyond — and we can hardly wait.
This year’s event is set for the weekend of September 22 to 25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West and will include various exhibits, a speaker program, exciting special features, and design experiences such as The District, Collect, Studio North, Prototype, and The Future of Work.
With the intention to ignite innovation and celebrate design tradition, the event serves as a platform for all things design. This year’s theme is “New Futures” and is all about inspiring fresh ideas, expression, and solutions while capturing Canadian design on a worldwide scale.
“Design is at the heart of innovation,” said Director of Conference at IDS Vancouver Bronwyn Gourley-Woo in a press release. “The IDS team is thrilled to make its return to the Pacific coast this year as we provide a platform to showcase the transformative, insightful, and innovative achievements among the design industry.”
Big industry names grace the event’s keynote speakers list, with notable women such as Ami McKay, the owner and creative director of Pure Design Inc. who has carved out a niche through her business in creating sacred spaces that bring greater quality of life, and Lynda Reeves of House & Home Media — one of Canada’s leading personalities in the fields of interior design, decorating, and lifestyle trends.
