Exhibition area of the 2012 show
The 2013 edition of the Interior Design Show West, which opens in Vancouver on September 19, is Western Canada's premiere residential design show, The four-day event at the Vancouver Convention Centre West runs through September 22 and features 300 exhibits of the latest home and lifestyle products and services. The show typically draws more than 30,000 design enthusiasts, architects and designers. This year's speakers include Brian Gluckstein, The Design Agency, Kelly Deck, Tommy Smythe, and Anna Abbruzzo and Alain Courchesne of Igloodgn.

The H&L Laneway Feature Home, built by Alair Homes, focuses on small-space living. The unique concept home by interior designer (and Pinterest celeb) Gaile Guevara and her team at Modern 604 "promises to upend preconceived notions of laneway living" (I'm not sure what laneway living is!). In addition to touring the H&L Laneway Feature Home, attendees may bid to own. A live auction will be held at the show on Saturday, September 21, with net proceeds going to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. in honor of World Alzheimer's Day. 

Speakers Anna Abbruzzo and Aain Courchesne will address the topic of Maximal Minimalism: The New Canadian Design Aesthetic on Sunday, September 22 at 3PM. The award winning interior design duo behind Igloodgn, established in 2005 in Montreal, has a growing international clientele and opened a second office in Shanghai in 2012. They bring a passion and fresh approach to design, focusing on building a detailed brand identity from inception to completion.
