Here, our top picks to purchase and take home from the show—plus, a chance to win tickets and special-collab IDS totes! —Vita Daily
poketo products. Los Angeles-based creative hub and design destination Poketo is hosting a pop-up shop at IDS, where you can pick up pieces from the brand's carefully curated collection of fun and functional products designed for a creative lifestyle (think: cute and modern accessories and stationary).
fab florals. Wa Moga 29 offers a curated selection of modern Japanese artisanal goods—like these gorgeous glass-bottle flower vases. Talk about making a pretty petal statement in your home!
abstract art. Feature artist Emily Forgot has created 14 special pieces that will line the IDS entranceway. These original artworks are available for pre-purchase, with 50 per cent of proceeds benefiting Out In Schools, an education program that uses film and video to engage students on issues of homophobia, transphobia and bullying.
wall wonders. Family company Urbanwalls creates well-designed wall decals, paper, murals and prints that turn a house into a home and an office into an oasis. Pick up a piece and fall in love with the spaces that surround you.
local candles. Not just any candles, though, Vancouver Candle Co. candles! Based in Vancouver, this maker of artisinal candles and diffusers (of ingredients like premium soy wax, pure cotton wicks, natural essential oils and perfume-grade fine fragrance) is perhaps best known for its neighbourhood series, bearing signature scents for various Vancouver districts.
