Top 10 Houseware Favourites

Today the Toronto Gift Fair introduced a new program recognizing innovation and functionality in the housewares industry, the Top 10 New Houseware Favourites. Laurie O’Halloran, HomeStyle’s editor and publisher, and show ambassadors and designers Glen Peloso and Jamie Alexander picked 10 new products from exhibitors in Housewares at the show.

Products were chosen from each category based on design and appearance, functionality, durability, innovation, technology and materials, packaging, environmental benefits, emotional appeal, social impact, market and competitive positions and the ability to meet consumer needs.

Winning products will be displayed in the Kitchen Connection in Hall 7 at the Toronto Congress Centre South until February 4, 2016.
