VANCOUVER, March 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Returning for its second stylish year, the Luxury Home & Design Show, presented by Taste of Life, will pair many of the West Coast's top design minds with a carefully curated collection of the world's most exclusive high-end home decor brands to create an opulent and sophisticated 45,000 square-foot estate at the Vancouver Convention Centre, May 1-3, 2015.
"We're going to convert the Convention Centre into a luxury home," says Marque Thompson of Design Marque, who oversees the look and feel of the show floor, including the impressive 310 foot-long, 12 foot-high façade. Contributing talent includes sixteen award-winning designers such as Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design; Joy Chao of John Henshaw Architect; Reisa Pollard, founder of Beyond Beige Interior Design; and Frits de Vries, founder of Frits de Vries Architect.
"I don't think there's been an exhibition like this before in Vancouver," says Thompson.
This "first of its kind" luxury home show will feature sumptuous living spaces, French-chateau-inspired courtyards, fountains, blooming gardens and even a covered lanai.
Formerly an invitation-only event for industry insiders and high-end trades, the Luxury Home & Design Show will be opening its doors to the public this year, sharing its breath-taking roomscapes with anyone who dreams of design with no limits.
Highlights to include:
- Elegance and edge as Formwerks Architectural juxtaposes traditional elements against avant-garde furniture by France's iconic Roche Bobois, including the modular Mah Jong sofa, recently reinvented by fashion's enfant terrible, Jean Paul Gaultier.
- Exquisite Chinoiserie and reverse glass paintings by Vancouver-based artist Peter Gorman, whose finely detailed artwork illuminates the halls of royal palaces throughout the Middle East, as well as the world's most luxurious hotels and one of the largest cruise ships on the seas, Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas.
- The floral mastery of England's de Gournay, whose internationally renowned, hand-painted frescos have graced dresses worn by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.
- Form meets function in the custom, state-of-the-art kitchen created by Georgie Award-winning designer Janie Hungerford for the V6B Design Group.
The Luxury Home & Design Show offers design aficionados the chance to experience the splendour that comes from the unfettered imaginations of the West Coast's most distinguished design leaders, all under one roof.
Extravagant, visionary and one-of-a-kind, the Luxury Home & Design Show is haute couture for the home.
