The annual Interior Design Show in Toronto, Canada, showcased some of the most exciting new trends in the industry and for the first time in the show's history, the organizers ran out of exhibitor space, due to the overwhelming demand of designers ready to show off their newest interior conceptions, according to the Toronto Star.

Many of the designers at this year's show weaved darker colors into their designs, and IKEA's booth was the most prominent. Using matte black cabinets, black granite countertops and illumination with their classic red Chinese lanterns, IKEA's prizewinning booth highlighted the industry's path towards dark, muted colors.

Green designs and minimalist furniture garnered a lot of attention at the show as well, as individuals and businesses try to increase their space and decrease their carbon footprint. Recycled materials were a huge draw, and finding new and inventive materials to create everyday furniture is a trendy style choice. Graphic art was interwoven into many displays and offered a degree of personalization to interior design.

Homeowners looking to add a natural element to their home should hang wood blinds. Wood blinds can add warmth and a timeless quality to window treatments.
