DL Loves: The Top 100 Designs of IDS and TO DO 2017

Everything we saw and loved during Toronto’s action-packed week of design events


dl-0117-events-dllovestag2All throughout the Toronto Design Offsite Festival and the Interior Design Show, our editors are on the hunt for spectacular products and installations. From January 16 to 22, we’re awarding 100 Designlines Loves tags to the most beautiful, most innovative, and downright coolest stuff we encounter.

Published each morning, our daily design week dispatch posts will summarize everything we loved while taking in the many mind-expanding events happening across the city. For a full run-down of the product launches, exhibitions and installations we’ll be visiting, check out our crazy-comprehensive Toronto Design Offsite Festival guide (complete with tips about our favourite spots to shop and grab a cup of coffee while you’re taking in all of the excitement!).

Check back each morning as we update this page with a list of everything we’ve tagged, plus insider insight into the up-and-coming trends and designers on our radar.
