Bookhou's Book Smart Designs
Among the other exhibitors at this weekend's Interior Design Show is a smart Toronto upstart called Bookhou Designs. The two partners, Arounna Khounnoraj who focuses on textile and sculpture and John Booth who designs furniture, marry their talent to create beautiful handmade products for your home that seem so obviously Canadian in their adorable and unassuming way.
Pillows, purses and playthings are adorned with owls, chickadees or meadow sprigs, while lamps and benches' curvaceous lines appear playfully constructed. I'd seen their pieces about town in places like The Paper Place (887 Queen West) and Red Pegasus (628 College Street) but enjoyed browsing their site for a better look at all that they do. I'd love to see Bookhou's textile line grow to include bedding with the same bright prints they use for journals like the one above. It'll be worthwhile stopping by their booth at IDS to see what more is in store.
