Black & White

Just back from the CGTA show in Toronto. This meant hours and hours of walking through literally hundreds of booths on the hunt for new and exciting items to stock the store and inspire us. For true design divas it was pure heaven.

The show is held twice a year and is the largest in Canada. It takes up the entire floor space in The International Centre and also the Congress Centre, both located near the Toronto International Airport. I'm not sure exactly how many square feet this event covers but to say it is massive is not an exaggeration.

The show is open only to retailers and industry professionals. It includes everything from jewellery to home decor, to small appliances, kitchen goods, floral, tabletop, linens and the list goes on. Suffice to say there was a lot to take in.

The trend is certain, Black and White is still very hot. Entire booths were beautifully executed, designed and devoted to just these 2 colours. We, however, we on a mission to find some colourful accent pieces. I like words like earthy tones, coastal inspired, jewel colours, neutral shades and warm sunny tones.

We want Moving Designz to be full of colour and in turn, life. We found some great colourful home decor items to breathe life into your homes. Look for Moving Designz to be filled with warm knitted throws in a variety of colours, punchy accent pillows, vibrant coastal inspired artwork, gorgeous 300 thread count hotel chic bedding, lined baskets for storage, tabletop accessories in every colour of the rainbow, clear glassware for candles and flower arranging, wine and barware accessories and black and white accent pieces.

Just in this week a great selection of new lamps and lighting, upholstered pieces from VanGogh Designs, solid wood furniture from Riverside and our new line of hotel style bedding.
