IDS 11 opened this week at the Metro Toronto Convention Center with an exceptional array of designers, manufacturers and artists from across Canada and around the globe. One of the feature exhibits was SIBLING REVELRY which focuses on family ties by challenging four of Canada’s most creative siblings to each design and transform a 600 square feet of space. Sarah and Theo Richardson as well as brothers Jason and Lars Dressler are two of the sibling teams.
