Media coverage galore via IDS and Toronto Design Week January 26 2013
IDS has been an absolutely amazing experience thus far. Today I got to meet Margot Austin (Editor of House & Home) who posted shots of my booth (and my Frye boots!) to her Flickr account. Tommy Smythe pointed out my chair to Sarah Richardson, I finally got to meet Sarah Keenleyside and Lindsay Konior of Qanuk (great, contemporary Canadian interior designers). Too many exciting things to list... what a treat for a young entrepreneur and designer.
Trunk Studio in the Press
"Canadian design devotees always make a beeline for IDS’s Studio North. Picks here don’t get more patriotic than Trunk Studio’s Station Chair in birch and walnut toped with cushions upholstered in MacAusland wool from PEI ($1,950 to $2,150, trunkstudio.com)."
The Station Chair combines Canadian culture with Tasker’s Danish ancestry.
“I wanted a lounge chair that you could really curl up in and read a book,” says Tasker, talking in her Halifax home before she drove to Toronto.
The chair, which comes in walnut and birch, is wide enough to sit cross-legged in, with sleek arms, widening where elbows would rest. It has echoes of Muskoka and Adirondack chairs, “and that’s a very Canadian thing.”

Next up, Canada's turn at IDS13 and I'm looking forward to seeing what shows up Canadian wise, I'm hoping to see some more pics of this chair, The Station Chair by Halifax's Trunk Studio (loving it upholstered in the MacAusland’s 100% Virgin Wool from Prince Edward Island).
