Two days after ICFF we attended the Montreal International Interior Design Show, which, although interesting, wasn’t as rich in finds this year as last. What we did see; Editorial, who we saw at ICFF last year, in fine form with a new deep sofa called Sedo, Rita had a conceptual booth with stencilled plywood furniture and lighting, Erratum Designers had TABTAB, a mini-picnic table, Guyon + Mailhiot a well-lit dinner table and Concordia design student Chris Sayce showing Fragrant Glow, an eco-minded lighting design. Oh, and the longest pool table I've ever seen... More design and designers after the jump.
Guyon + Mailhiot's well-lit dinner table highlighted their glass tableware.

...and three Sedo's make a seating system.
Concordia design student Chris Sayce was showing Fragrant Glow, an eco-minded lighting design made with used perfume bottles filled with liquid and lights. Reminiscent of Ingo Maurer's Campari light, but with a twist, Fragrant Glow's bulbs are in the bottle with the liquid.
Rita 's booth poked a stencilled finger in the eye of the fancy MoCo exhibits with familiar Quebecois design archetypes stencilled on plain ole' plywood, at prices that would make anyone blush. Naughty Rita. That's Rita designer Francis Rollin reclining uncomfortably on the sofa.

The SIDIM featured design from Africa this year. Of note, Mali-based Cheick Diallo's collection that "resurrects materials from their past life, transforming used metal into tables".
