Recently I attended an interior design show in Toronto. I really felt like a fish out of water while I was in the building. However there was a lot I got lot of the day. there were a lot of new materials that I learnt about and on one side of the hall artists had rented individual places to show their works. My old classmate Joon Hee Kim was by far my favorite, not just because I think shes awesome, but because her work is ahead of the times. The large booths were designed by companies with lots of investment in the current fashions of the time. I did notice that underpinning the crisp nature of the "rooms" were ornate decorations that worked very well in the pristine kitchens.
