This is the final report from IDSwest, Vancouver, with some brief encounters of
interesting people and great products:

IDSwest Sarah Richardson
Sarah Richardson and Tommy Smythe at IDSwest
Our famous Sarah Richardson talked at length about Interior design and if you want to know more just read the post that Marcus Design wrote (Nancy was sitting near me, first row, not to miss one word, one gesture of this so well loved designer)

I met for the first time Marie Khouri, a talented sculptor who presented at IDSwest these beautiful organic pieces in a landscape installation called Origins.

Thanks for all the coverage. Makes me think about checking it out next time around. Based on your feedback it seems worth a trip north.

You've been busy attend shows I see! How FUN!!!

Patricia Gray said...

Hi Albarosa
I particularly liked the venue for the show this year, our new fabulous Convention Center. The booths and the guest speakers were world class. Good to see you there.

Martha Sturdy and Brent Comber are such amazing local talents, it's crazy. I just wish their product was a little more accesible (in terms of cost) so that more people could own their pieces. That glowing chair of Martha's is $14,000.00!

I'm sad I didn't meet up with all my favorite vancouver bloggers... :(
