5X5: 5 Designers, 5 Inspired Spaces

From production design and industrial design, to architecture and landscape design -- and of course gold old fashioned interior designer -- the group of design stars that were selected to have featured concept spaces at this year’s IDS are so wonderfully diverse… it’s going to be amazing to see what they come up with.

64th and Queen, Castor, Taylor Hannah Architect Inc., Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting Inc., and Earth inc. have been charged with creating inspiration spaces. Check out the video below to see what they are thinking:

I’m going to try and give a snapshot of each design firm chosen, so first up is Earth Inc. If you’re into green- these are your guys!


The four man principal team of Earth Inc star in the HGTV series Dirty Business. TV aside, their portfolio is beautiful and varied with landscaped spaces that range from modern zen to traditionally lush

Besides their pleasant portfolio, they have a great section on their website of past shows/events they have participated in. My favourite is their space for Canada Blooms in 2001:


It’s so rustic but has that whimsical fairytale quality that makes you think anything could happen while you’re walking through…    


I’m quite excited to see what they have in store for this year as a featured space!
