Pottery ware Infused With Mountain Spirit
Master Tian Chengtai can often be seen in the clothes of a hermit, wandering the mountains around his workshop in Taiwan. Yet his pottery ware is among the most sought-after on the global luxury market. He will create for the Luxury Home & Design Show an exclusive collection of his earthy, yet lofty, pottery that will also be used in a special tea ceremony at the show.
We have invited the brilliant architect Imu Chan to build a tea pavilion, especially for this ceremony. Guests at the ceremony will get to taste the special organic teas of a renowned tea master, served in Master Tian’s precious pottery ware — which they will take home with them.

We traveled to Master Tian’s workshop to learn about his life and his work, to know more click here.
What Leonardo da Vinci Would Make Today
Leonardo da Vinci will be at the Luxury Home & Design Show — in a manner of speaking. Karice owner and designer Maurice Dery has envisioned what Leonardo da Vinci would build if he had today’s materials at hand.
The result is a custom design true to da Vinci’s spirit and to the show’s Renaissance theme. Karice is known for making lighting and metalwork with the utmost creativity and ingenuity, and we look forward to seeing what new pièce de résistance they will create with such grand inspiration.

From Ancient Asia To Modern Design
Jade is solid stone, yet its structure is like that of woven fabric — this allows light to shine through, casting an enchanting green glow. Vancouver Jade is thus creating back-lit works of art and furniture.
The natural patterns in jade are accentuated by the illumination. Designer Dean Cloutier says they recall the jali — latticed screens or perforated stone, often featuring lace-like designs — of ancient Indian architecture. Jade itself was a favored material in ancient Asian art, and Vancouver jade brings that aesthetic into contemporary design.
The Luxury Home & Design Show has invited celebrity designer Timothy Bullinger to create a custom collection by partnering with Vancouver Jade.
