The who’s who of Canadian designers and industry professionals came together for the annual Canadian Home Furnishings Market in Toronto to show off the latest trends and fresh new home design collections. Over 300 manufacturers and distributors were celebrating the recent rise in demand for high-quality, Canadian-made furniture. To toast the optimism in the market, SOFA: Source of Furniture + Accessories hosted their exclusive annual cocktail party presenting “What’s New + What’s Next” in home furnishings. Canada’s largest one-stop design center with 200,000 sq. ft. of permanent interior design showrooms, SOFA opened up its doors to over 500 attendees, who enjoyed light libations, hors d’oeuvres and captivating sweet table.
Of course the grand highlight of the evening was your very own Petite & Sweet of the Food Network’s Sugar Stars’ 2 ft. by 4 ft. real-life replica of a model kitchen made entirely of cake. The decadent chocolate dessert was based on the Distinctive Appliances and Canadel shared booth design for the upcoming International Design Show. These two companies — Distinctive Appliances is Canada’s largest independent distributor of kitchen appliances and Canadel is a major Canadian dining furniture manufacturer.
