Haute Design by IKEA Wins Gold at 2014 Interior Design Show

Award Winning Exhibitor Creates 18th Century French Elegance with a Modern Twist

BURLINGTON, ON, Jan. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - From January 23 to 26, IKEA once again treated the design community and industry insiders with the elegance of its 980 square foot booth at the 2014 Interior Design Show. Inspired by the 18th century French era, the architecture of the booth was classically influenced with wall paneling and antiques while also incorporating many modern elements. The design was judged by Ryan Martin of Croma Design Inc. who awarded the home furnishings giant once again with a Gold Booth Award.

"Each year we look to push the boundaries and inspire show-goers with what can be done with our products," says Madeleine Lowenborg-Frick, Public Relations Manager, IKEA Canada. "After last year's award winning Scandinavian modern design, we wanted to swing the creative execution 180 degrees stylistically. Putting IKEA products into this context creates a fascinating tension and proves once again that high design is achievable on a reasonable budget."

"IKEA's high-style booth made judging easy, with an exhibit beautifully balanced between drama and sophistication," says judge Ryan Martin, Principal Designer, Croma Design Inc. "Exploration of product was encouraged and play of design was inspired, all in one informative package."

The IKEA booth was divided into three spaces: le foyer, la cuisine and la toilette. The kitchen was fit for a French castle, outfitted in the newest door style, LIDINGÖ gray, an open fire place and stunning Venetian crystal chandeliers. The dressing room was enough to inspire awe in any woman's heart, with a GODMORGON high gloss white vanity, and a full wall of PAX wardrobes, all set against a gilded backdrop.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
