At BLANCO’s booth, showcase attendees could interact with the company’s new faucets, including SOLENTA Senso and EMPRESSA Semi-Pro, High-Arc and Bar/Prep models.

Interior Design Show (IDS) Toronto celebrated its 20th year with a look to the future.

The showcase theme Future Forward focused on elements of design that have contributed to an evolution of the architectural and design industry.

In the plumbing and HVAC product arena, transitional and contemporary design, aging in place and new technology dominated.

The four-day event brought together manufacturers, designers, artisans and industry experts at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, ON.

Exhibitors were in kitchen and bath, flooring, lighting, furniture and design, to name a few. This year’s showcase included speakers and panels, design courses and interior tours – a new addition. Transitional and contemporary design, as well as black and gold finishes, are at the forefront of trends for 2018. Blanco, Ortal, Rohl and Lixil brands – American Standard, DXV and Grohe – were among the list of exhibitors to showcase these trends.

Inline with this year’s showcase theme, many exhibitors introduced aging in place designs and forward-thinking technologies. Stay tuned for more on the role of plumbing in universal design in HPAC’s May issue.
