On November 30, 2023, Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) will be hosting the Impact Breakfast – an event that celebrates the significant contributions of Canadian interior designers and the impact their legacy continues to have on the interior design community.

This event, which is presented by ShawContract, features a special presentation in recognition of two honourees who were carefully selected by IDC’s nominations committee.

This year’s honourees are Allan Guinan and Caroline Hughes, who along with Chris Wright and others, co-founded Figure3, one of Canada’s most distinguished interior design firms.

They will be joined by Deborah Wang, Artistic Director at DesignTO, who will interview the honourees in a live conversation on stage.

Since 1995, Figure3 has followed a design vision and a philosophy that still grounds who the company is today. Figure3, which now operates under new partners, is a combination of robust strategic planning with a considered creative vision to deliver superlative spaces for clients. Today, Figure3 has grown into a 70+ strong studio filled with a mix of talents, backgrounds, and specialist skills from strategy and design researchers to industrial designers to graphic brand and textile experts who complement and amplify our core interior design expertise.

The morning event will be hosted at the Arcadian, located at 401 Bay Street, in Toronto, Ont.
