From January 19-22, the 19th annual Interior Design Show is slated to take over Toronto’s Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The yearly Canadian design extravaganza launches with an Opening Night Party, which features music by German duo Satin Jackets.

The show itself features a special installation by Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon, who has collaborated with quartz countertop line Caesarstone. Hayon’s project, Stone Age Folk, is said to feature 48 colours and a kaleidoscopic aesthetic. The Madrid-born creative soul is said to merge the worlds of décor and art with this new initiative.

Visitors who are coveting new accents for their humble homes can also drop by the Designboom Mart, an international design market which features works from 30 different professionals. If you are passionate about outdoor living, the show’s Open Air exhibit just may suit your creative tastes. This installation highlights the vision of landscape designers and architects, from backyard designs to materials.
