Best of Design Week, Day 3: Lovely Lanterns, Rope Pendants & Creepy Dolls

We’re out tagging the best products, designs and installations we encounter at the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) and the Interior Design Show (IDS). Here’s our third dispatch from the wilds of Toronto


From January 15 to 21, we’re awarding 100 Designlines Loves tags to the most beautiful, most innovative, and flat-out wackiest stuff we encounter. Keep track of everything we tagged in our master list and share your stories with us using the hashtag: #DLLoves18. Happy trails!

The third day of our Loves program took us to some of the trendiest strips in downtown Toronto: Queen West and the Junction. Fittingly, we were treated to a slew of window installations (our version of window shopping) including an MSDS Studio light, hanging in Aesop’s normally austere window, and a woven wood wall divider at Stylegarage. First, we made a trip to the spacious new Hollis+Morris showroom between the Junction Triangle and Castlefield Design District, where wood and light combine as if by magic.

In total, we handed out 11 Loves tags to up-and-coming artists and established design studios. The Boxhaus LED installation at Image Foundry by MikkA told a twisted bedtime story, while Watson Soul’s double-sided rug inspired visions of cozy, and surprisingly dynamic, interiors. Swipe through the gallery above to see everything we loved.
