TORONTO, CANADA -- Ceramics of Italy heads back to Toronto for the 2012 IDS Interior Design Show, which will be held from January 26 to 29, 2012 in the Metro Toronto Convention Center.  Sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica, the Association of Italian Ceramics, the Ceramics of Italy institutional booth will feature mini-exhibits from some of Italy's leading manufacturers, including Appiani, Atlas Concorde, FAP, Giovanni De Maio and Vogue.  The multi-brand booth (#1534) will showcase 1,160 square feet of the newest ceramic tile and design trends presented to the Canadian market for the first time.

"The Canadian sector has proved to be an integral market for Italian ceramic manufacturers," said Franco Manfredini, President of Confindustria Ceramica,"Our increasing exports to that market are thanks to a dynamic Canadian architectural and design community."

Vittorio Borelli, Vice President of Promotional Activities at Confindustria Ceramica, added, "We are excited to be exhibiting for the second year in a row at IDS. The show's focus on sustainability and innovative technologies is in line with our manufacturer's criteria when creating new collections."

Ceramics of Italy will also host a free seminar entitled "Dolce Ceramica: Tile Trends and Design Tips from Italy" on Saturday, January 28 at 3 p.m. with Erin McLaughlin, Editor-in-Chief of Style at Home magazine. Fresh from her trip to Bologna, Italy, for Cersaie --  one of the world's largest exhibitions of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings -- McLaughlin will give a first-hand account of the latest design trends and technical innovations from Italy. She will highlight inspiring projects, provide design tips and share hands-on samples with the audience of both design trade and consumers. She will also update attendees on the latest sustainability innovations, certifications and eligibility for LEED credits.
