2019 Interior Design Show

This month The Fireplace Specialist will take part the 2019 installment of the Interior Design Show (IDS19) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC).

We have been a part of IDS since its inception in 1999. It is a great opportunity to meet like-minded professionals and give the public a more in-depth look at the type of services and products we provide.

This year our exhibit will be located at #426
