The 19th annual Interior Design Show is known for showcasing innovative decor and setting the creative tone for the year ahead. Scoured by the country’s top design talent for inspiration, it’s also open to the public. (If you’re in Toronto, you can visit the show at the Metro Convention Centre until January 22nd.) Below, five of our favourite trends from this year’s show.

IDS predicts that rugs will be used more and more as pieces of art for a room. (Think bold textures, colours, designs and sizes — like the room-filling rug shown above from J&M Republic.)
