You Won't Believe Who Designed This

Julia Millay Walsh
This past weekend, IKEA pushed the boundaries of glamour to new heights with its booth at the 2014 Interior Design Show in Canada. A sharp departure from its signature Scandinavian modern look, the Swedish brand took inspiration from 18th century France, mixing classical wall paneling and antiques with high-gloss wardrobe doors, stainless steel hoods, and more. 1614028_10151955538368434_24858822_o The booth was divided into three spaces: a foyer, a kitchen, and a bathroom/dressing room. The kitchen was outfitted with the brand's newest door style, LIDINGÖ grey, an open fireplace, and stunning Venetian crystal chandeliers. Meanwhile, the romantic dressing room featured a GODMORGON high gloss white sink vanity and a full wall of PAX wardrobes, with a wall full of gold tiles amping up the glam factor.Needless to say, we had a total "I can't believe it's IKEA," moment when we saw it. It's no surprise the retailer took home the show's coveted Gold Booth Award for the best design!
