Design Trends- The Aura of Ito

PantoneTRENDING NOW – We have been traveling the world to bring you the freshest designs. Ashley’s 2016 world tour kicked off in our own backyard, where international designers came to rub shoulders and share trade secrets at the I.D.S. show, Toronto.

THINK PINK One of Pantone’s Colors of the Year is Rose Quartz which timed perfectly as we unveiled a Think Pink showroom- to huge acclaim. Rose is the perfect foil for the new gold hues that are appearing. Soft, brushed and warm metal will be accentuating your table in the months to come.
JUST DO IT We were thrilled when, Ora Ito, the cyber design genius who graced the Azure Magazine stage, visited us. His pioneering virtual designs for Apple to Louis Vuitton launched his career in 1999. “Just do it,” he said as he explained that he had no option but to float his designs in cyberspace when he was not able to secure an interview with his favorite brands. “These were the days that it took twenty minutes to download a pic,” said Ito, describing his projects like children who grow up and move away from home.
CHRISTOFLE Here he is at our showroom with the Arborescence candelabra that he designed for Christofle. Charming and dynamic, we look forward to seeing him again!

IN HIS OWN WORDS Watch a video filmed at the international launch of the Arborescence collection in Paris and hear what Ora had to say about his award winning designs.
