The highlight of the fall season for design industry professionals, interior designers and architects is an annual ritual that takes place over four days in September—the Interior Design Show West (IDSwest). Held at the Vancouver Convention Centre, the event sprawls over three large exhibit halls and features a vast selection of exhibitors that attracts over 31,000 visitors, both trade and consumer. The Party on Opening Night kicked everything off with a fun social evening that included entertainment by DJ Wax, Underground Circus and Men’s Fashion Week and plenty of wine. It was an opportunity to check out some of the exhibits, mingle with design icons and media and get a peek at the gorgeous custom-built H&L
Laneway Home. The home and the adjacent Laneway Lounge were definitely the hot spots of the show, and the H&L booth drew people in from the other side of the hall with its stunning light configuration and colourful couches—an invitation to lounge. The H&L Laneway Home was a labour of love for all of us at H&L, IDSwest, Alair Homes, Modern604, Millson Technologies and all the other amazing companies who contributed time and money and energy to this project—thank you to everyone. The home was live-auctioned off on World Alzheimer’s Day with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer Society of BC. Congratulations to Keith Scott and family who offered the winning bid.
