Design Submissions Review – Judging Time!

This is it. No turning back now!

Next week we’ll meet with our judging panel to review all design submissions and start pulling together our FW18 debut collection.

So, who are the judges?

COFO Design will be represented by us, Des and Randy. We’re honoured to announce the addition of two special guests to help us make the big decisions:

Karen T. Kang
National Director, IDS Canada

“I oversee the IDS brand for Canada with a focus on strategic growth, partnerships, business development and content. I also steer the vision, creative direction and marketing for the brand. As of 2015, I am also part of the Dwell on Design Advisory Group.”


Tory Healy
Editor in Chief, DESIGNLINES

Published four times a year, DESIGNLINES is the ultimate guide to Toronto’s best contemporary furniture showrooms and home decor shops. The current issue of Designlines and many of their back issues are available in digital format through Zinio.

You can read more about Des and I here.

We’d like to give a special shout-out to all the applicants for taking the initiative to enter our first challenge. Your time and efforts in sharing your passion with us is what makes everything we do worthwhile. Thank you.

COFO started as an idea, and like the designs, we’ll bring to our first collection, we’re excited to see this idea take shape and evolve into something real!


Des + Randy
