It was the Interior Design Show over the weekend, so if you didn’t get the chance to check it out, we’ve covered some of the highlights!
This year, the Prototypes were very diverse, each offering glimpses of what’s to come in new Canadian design.
Science and sons gave us our favorite design of the evening: “Radio Canada” a radio with only 2 stations, CBC radio 1 & 2. It was just one of those things that we saw and desperately wanted.
