IDS 2011: Live Wood and Colour


IDS 2011 was on this past weekend, and I didn' get to spend nearly enough time exploring it as I would have liked to.  I can tell you that at the walking the show floor on Thursday night I felt a mix of vibrant colour and a beautiful assortment of earthy and rich woods tones.  Especially to note were live edges and grains.  The collection of carpets from Modern Weave, Elte and Weavers Art displayed a beautiful assortment of colours, and interesting patterns.  Brothers' Dressler had a really interesting display on the Sibling Revelry exhibit, and of course, Sarah Richards was rich on colour in her exhibit with brother Theo. 

Pictures above from these bloggers who had there cameras handy all weekend, and have followed up with great posts:
