IDS 11. Review in Pictures

18 karat. Images by kk.
IDS offered free passes for the industry if you registered by a certain day. Not being quite the industry, I enjoyed my free admission and a less crowded space on a Professional Trade Day. Having only two hours left before closing I did my quick but thorough round.
I felt that the show is more designed for the industry - to see what is new and available in the world of tiles or wallpaper or fossils, meet suppliers and get ideas for your clients. I love interior design, architecture, beautiful furniture and interiors but not a lot of individual pieces grabbed my attention.
However, I really enjoyed the way some suppliers displayed their product, presented themselves and the booths they have designed.

Below is a short summery of things that stood out.
More images available on Fira&Capa's facebook page.

Above is a booth for 18 karat furniture. Well put together display. I just hope tulips were not just purely used for decoration, but had some branding significance.

 Commute Home had a small display to showcase the concept of who they are - creative, unique pieces recreated from the found objects.
