Canadian Gift Show: Camilla, Cobi, Steven & Chris

This year's CGTA gift show visit almost didn't happen for me between school PA day, snow day and a busy month but I managed to find three hours on the last day to attend...and I'm glad I did.  I registered as Media and was lucky enough to have a wonderful PR rep, Natasha from Idea Workshop escort me around the show so that I was able to take pictures of my favourite vendors.    I had so many pictures that I'm going to spread the reviews out in a few posts.

One of my favourite discoveries at last year's show was Camilla House Imports who had an even larger and more elaborate booth than I remember.  They continue to expand on their specialty of "reclaimed" wood and metal, so on trend right now, with the addition of some fabulous over sized mirrors and tables

Another big hit was "black glamour"- from tables and chairs, to lighting and accessories, it was all over the industry trade shows this year - hooray, black is back!

When I saw this striking, over sized leather trunk outfitted into a cozy bar with pullout tray it immediately struck me as not only beautiful but also multi-functional.  The left half could easily rest a laptop for of all my friends that work from home and sometimes need a little liquid solace at the end of their multi-tasking convenient to have the bar at arm's reach!

Next I headed over to the Samaco/Canfloyd/Northdale booth to check out the latest offerings from Steven and Chris and a new line from former Editor of Canadian House and Home magazine, Cobi Ladner aptly named Cobi Style - initials standing for Collection of Beautiful Ideas.

 I can see this masculine line in a stylish modern library filled with leather-bound books or an industrial chic bachelor pad .

I love the fresh, muted colours and texture of this line

Cobi Ladner's line was a splash of Springtime with vibrant pinks, oranges and greens in lovely fabrics, pillows, furnishings and accessories.

More fabulous Spring previews from CGTA to come....
