The Interior Design Show (IDS) is back and in person from April 7and at 10and 2022 at the Metro Convention Center.

It’s the one I look forward to every year because it’s not your everyday home show, it goes one step further with new innovations, concepts and even prototype designs never seen before.

IDS Toronto will explore the realm of the possible with its 2022 theme, New futureswhich will reflect Canadian design in a global context and be a catalyst for new ideas, new solutions and new expressions, say its organizers.

There’s always something for everyone and everyone, from new furniture and technological advancements, to decorating ideas, accessories and products, as well as seminars and lectures by leading professionals.

Kitchens and bathrooms are such an important part of our homes, and some of my must-haves this year include the luxury quartz brand Caesarstonewhich will feature eight new nature-inspired surfaces as part of its new Pebbles collection.

Spain-based global brand Consentino will unveil new sustainable bathroom colours, collections and offerings now made with its HybriQ technology, a new sustainable production process for its quartz surfaces and engineered stone products.

Also proving that sustainability in home design has become an important feature, a Canadian cleantech company has a product I can’t wait to see RainStick in action. They have revolutionized the way water is used by reducing the amount of water used in a home as well as using less energy with what is believed to be North America’s first Wi-Fi enabled circular shower.

RainStick saves 80% water and up to 80% energy while maintaining almost twice the flow of a traditional low-flow shower. It starts with fresh water supplied by the network; However, instead of flowing, RainStick captures, circulates and cleans water, all in real time to prevent waste. You can even download the RainStick app on a smartphone to instantly see environmental information, track water usage and energy savings.
