It should come as no surprise that we can’t wait for fall - even with the gorgeous weather outside. Why, you ask? The Vancouver Home + Design Show, that’s why! We’re thrilled to announce exciting new features that are sure to capture your attention this October. To pump up the pre-show anticipation, we present you with the top 5 features at this year’s Vancouver Home + Design Show, happening October 16-19 at BC Place Stadium.
1. Urban Barn’s Next Top Designer: Reloaded
Back after a hugely successful inaugural year, three of Vancouver’s up-and-coming interior designers will go head-to-head in Urban Barn’s Next Top Designer: Reloaded. It’s the ultimate micro-management exercise: designing a 150 ft2 space with $5,000 worth of Urban Barn furniture and accessories for display. Cast your vote at the Urban Barn booth and you could walk away with a $5,000 Urban Barn shopping spree!
2. Ultimate Upcycling Challenge 3: ChairLIFT
Local media personalities, designers and tastemakers will each upcycle a pre-loved chair for silent auction, with 100% of proceeds benefitting Habitat for HumanityGreater Vancouver and its affiliated ReStores. Be sure to stop by and bid on your favourite stylish seat – but best keep close tabs on the action, or it could be lost to a higher bidder!
3. Vancouver Magazine Cooking Stage
Home cooks, take note. Catch well-known chefs, like Food Network’s Corbin Tomaszeski and local favourites, as they demonstrate top recipes and expert techniques live on stage! Plus, don’t miss the Samsung Cooking Challenge: Tag Team Kitchen, where three home cooks will partner with a top chef in a battle for culinary supremacy (not to mention $5,000 worth of Samsung home appliances for their kitchen).
4. BC Hydro Power Smart Home
Eco-lovers, rejoice! BC Hydro’s Power Smart Home is back by popular demand. Design darling Jennifer Scott from A Good Chick To Know will marry cool style and electricity conservation in this green-loving space. Learn how to stay chic and shrink your home’s carbon footprint at the same time – now that’s called sustainable style.
5. Floform Lounge presented by Western Living
After a day of digging up design inspiration, you’ll need to recharge and study up on fall’s must-have home trends, courtesy of Western Living magazine. Enter the Floform Lounge, designed by Megan Baker from A Good Chick to Know. Located just steps away from the Metrie Main Stage, you can lay back and relax without missing any of the celebrity action – vino in hand, of course.
