A home is a lot like a Rubik’s Cube—many people attempt to properly coordinate its shapes and colours, but few can do so without painting over the entire thing. Meet some of the world’s finest puzzle solvers with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two admissions (up to a $30 value, including HST) to the Interior Design Show West (IDSwest), held in the new Vancouver Convention Centre. Groupon tickets are valid for admission during all general public hours from Friday, September 30, through Sunday, October 2.
During IDSwest, 200 designers and manufacturers from British Columbia and abroad emerge from the polished woodwork to flaunt their wares alongside industry heavyweights in a three-day public showcase. Nelson-based designer David Catta's Cattaworks launches comfort into the next stratosphere and induces pretend airplane noises with the handcrafted aviator lounge chair, and Darren Bertuccio turns on the interior charm with his harmonious wooden furniture designs. Meanwhile, Dutch line Moooi sets up its trademark blend of lighting, furniture, and functional accessories in the Livingspace Lounge, and Michael Katz Architecture displays the L41home, which includes such sustainable features as drywall stuffed with organic cotton candy.
Guests who emerge unscathed from the field of cutting-edge furnishings can soak in the wisdom of Friday’s keynote speaker and the host of CNN’s Just Imagine, Ross Lovegrove. Though Friday’s events are geared toward trade professionals and talking recliners, doors open to the general public at 4 p.m. to kick off the weekend with an evening of innovation and creativity.
