The Canadian Home Furnishings Market will take place January 12 to 17 at the International Centre in Mississauga.
The 2008 show will focus on current trends in sustainable development and multi-use products. Close to 400 national and international exhibitors will present their new and exclusive offerings in a 700,000 sq. ft exhibition space, allowing visitors to find furnishings and accessories for every room in the house.
One of the most highly anticipated components of this show will be the ninth edition of the Trend Display. Created by André Caron and Pierre d'Anjou, professionals in presentation design, the Trend Display will highlight the products of numerous Canadian exhibitors, the majority of whom are from Québec.
Every fall, Caron and d'Anjou head to the High Point show and select all the necessary elements to feature in their displays. They then create a furniture and accessories showcase in which colour plays a major role. Their installations are inspirational not only from the point of view of the furniture selected, but also from their visual presentation.
This year, the two designers will broaden the display concept and create a "furniture gallery" by creating a mock showroom floor featuring various visual presentation themes.
