National Home Show 2016 – ReCap

National Home Show 2016 - ReCap

Design Intervention, Over 400 served!

National Home Show – Wow its hard to believe its over! Sure the show is 10 days long, which in itself is saying something. But when you add in the 4 days of set up, a day of tear down and months of planning, it feels more like a home renovation than just a home show! However all that time planning, sourcing, scheduling, staffing and staging really does pay off in the end. I think we can safely say that after 10 days, 120 hours, 20 design experts and nearly 400 clients, our Design Intervention feature definitely helped out more than a few people! Not to mention the 60,000 copies of RENO & DECOR, Active Life, HOMES Magazine and Condo Life Magazine that were scooped up by show goers.

We are pretty sure our booth this year was one of the best we’ve ever had. From the colours, to the lighting, to the style and the furnishings. Everything was just beautiful and luxurious. The flooring and the mouldings, the artwork and the trim, the amazing wall paper. Everything was done perfectly. All that credit has to go to our booth designers Glen Peloso and Jamie Alexander. They really went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our space was anything but ordinary. We have to thank the wonderful suppliers that helped make this possible. Glen & Jamie, Peloso Alexander Furniture, Century Furniture, Bespoke My Place, JT & Company, Bousada Flooring, XL Flooring, Marc Antonio Designs, Benjamin Moore and Metrie. All these companies really stepped up to provide us products and services to help bring this feature together. Please take the time to click their logos below and visit their websites.


Finally, none of this would be possible without the generosity of our amazing friends in the design world for volunteering their time to sit for hours in the booth “speed designing” for clients every 15 minutes. Sometimes working 6 hour shifts without breaks! But I think every single designer said they enjoyed the experience and many actually booked jobs from their meetings. So it was definitely a win-win for everyone involved. Once again thanks to our designers, decorators and renovators that offered their valuable time to us over the 10 day show:
