vancouver home & interior design show 2006 ~ 2 ~ designers & boutiques






i've included some remarkable boutique products & designer's creations from the show in this post. i left out some great designs because i have mentioned some of them in my previous posts or i want to save some designs for the future posts.


university of alberta
these design students' works are awesome! design students are often the most creative bunch. also, the booth design was very nice and the designs were well displayed. thumbs up, guys! check out their blog 'Slavin' Maven.' here are several pieces that i can't wait to show you:

75
coffee table by Sari Maani. made of MDF & maple veneer. i like the details of the table legs very much. from a certain angle, they look like strong, thick and solid legs. when you approach the table from a slightly different angle, you get to find out the 'truth' about them. i like designs with little surprises.













circumflex
accent chair by Zoe Mowat. made of walnut, MDF, & steel. this stylish chair would be great in any modern space, especially compact condos. i wonder if Mowat will go further and make 'circumflex' into a bar stool. it's hard to find good-looking bar stools these days.


















balloon party
table by Natalie Kruch. made of 450 balloons & Baltic birch. isn't this fun? i have this balloon-phobia. hmm.. i'm so afraid of balloon popping sounds. but hey, i won't complain when they are in this form and used to make such a cute table.


















softie
stool by Tyler Vreeling. made of aluminum plate & tube. i see this it as a great multi-functional piece. it's a stool that can also be a flower vase, an accent table that severs candies, or an office supply central. i will probably sort my markers in colour groups and put them in these tubes.











soft table
table by Zoe Mowat. made of rubber plywood, birch plywood, & industrial felt. this is one table design with an interesting material combination. you can probably put hot dishes on it without needing to worry about burning the surface. you can also pin your notes on the table. i happen to know that my cats will enjoy this table very much....










line
low coffee table by Joanna Goszczynski. made of MDF, Baltic birch plywood, processed fir, maple veneer & black walnut veneer. a very nicely designed coffee table. i like the table legs curved into and sandwiched by the table top layers.















mimi law
Mimi Law's minimalist booth caught my attention. i spotted this interesting steel sculpture from afar. with her multicultural background, education and work experience, Law creates unique objects with the mind of an engineer, the eye of an artist and the hands of a craftsperson.


















brent comber
if you're my loyal reader, you'd know i'm a loyal fan of Brent Comber's creations. aren't these just amazing? they give the beauty and life back to these reclaimed and recycled woods. the fact that Brent Comber's collection has minimal or no negative impact on the environment is just so wonderful.













gregory kenny

some of you may remember Kenny's work for Kilowatt in DV show. this is my favorite piece among all his designs. the door with slanted edges gives this piece such smooth and clean lines. the look is modern, complete and just so perfect. he used special-ordered hinges for the door mechanism. you can check out his designs at the recently opened 7one6 Studio in Vancouver.
















csi
like i mentioned before, shiny and sparkly things always gets my attention. it's like i can sniff the nearest sparkles in any space. so when Creative Surfaces Inc. displayed their new tile line 'Carat' at their booth, i was pulled right in. the tiles create this illusion that it's raining diamonds and the raindrops lingered on the tiles. just about right amount of sparkle can remain subtle and also generate great excitements.

















nettie
interior-designer-turned-textile-designer Paula Lukey has successfully created this elegant but not overly feminine textile line for interior space. her designs provide calm, peaceful yet lively graphics and colours. they are 'soothing to the eyes yet breathe a sense of life and character when adapted into any environment.' my favorite one is her signature icon 'kissing fish.'

















chocorex
organic material in modern form to the ultimate extend. these reasonably priced lighting fixtures work well in any modern space with their modern shapes. the natural stones and shells Chocorex uses brings warmth into the often cold modern interior. their lights can balance the natural and industrial feels in your space. they also offer huge slabs that can be used for bars or walls.
















modernkid
i just love ModernKid's collections. here are some new arrivals that were shown at their booth. this updated, stylish-looking wooden car 'Automoblox Pink' has rubber wheels and interchangeable parts. the whole vehicle comes apart and can easily be put back together. a great developmental tool. also, ModernKid will donate a percentage of the proceeds to the BC Cancer Foundation. $45CDN.














another exciting new product is the 'Dirty Laundry Sticker Stories' collection that includes Princess, Monster Truck & Rocket Dog. just like other wall decals, you peel, stick, and create you own wall designs. what differentiate this one from the rest is that the ordinary wall decals only come in one colour while this collection comes in colourful decals in one package. $95CDN.

















ma maison designs
Spick & Span Tradings has these wonderful home accessory collections from ma Maison Designs. the vibrant colours and graphics will definitely bring some great energy to your space or parties. mmm... some of them can make hors d'oeuvres and desserts look so yummy. they can also be great displays or accessories.


















koolhaus
i spotted this interesting glass curtain divider from the trendy Koolhaus booth. i'm pretty sure it's from the wholesaler Global Views in the US. the cuved glass 'hooks' reflect the light beautifully but you'll have to make sure that you have a kids- or pets-free living environment to own this.

Hello,

I'd appreciate if you can give me some feedback on our site: http://www.regencyshop.com/Bar-Stools/c33/index.html?osCsid=c57d1fcff64e9730d85dc1e8b59a7c5f

I realize that you are home decor-modern design connoisseur :) I'd like to hear your opinion/feedback on our products. Also, it'd be swell if you can place our suede wassily chair in a bag set in a bag on your blog.

Thank you,
