This past weekend was the 48th annual Brandon Home and Leisure Show — a yearly event where some of Brandon and area’s finest gather together to showcase their wares, products, and talents. If you happened to miss it, not to worry — there were a few new and unique exhibitors that caught my eye.
German Living doors
Based out of Winnipeg, German Living is a fantastic company that caters to a discerning clientele with a love of modern and contemporary design. Providing a wide range of high quality interior passage and sliding doors manufactured by Lebo in Germany, the options are endless. Having worked with this company myself on several different builds, I can attest to the high quality and finishing details these doors are crafted with — definitely suited to those looking to add some flare to their projects.

Elegance In Stone
You’re apt to see a bevy of countertop exhibitors each year at the show, and this year was no different. Those searching for stone options for their kitchen and bathroom projects had a variety of booths to visit. The massive granite slab display from Winnipeg’s Elegance In Stone was a huge attraction in the larger section of displays. Using the finest quality stone from around the world in association with some of the oldest and most renowned quarries, they specialize in exotic slabs from places as far away as Brazil and Italy. eleganceinstone.ca
Inspired Comfort kitchens
Recently expanding to Brandon from Winnipeg, Inspired Comfort is a kitchen and bath design centre with a combined 70 years experience in the kitchen and bath industry. Although the new showroom is still in the process of being fully set up, it will boast full kitchen, bath and bar displays as well as a sample area where you will be able to bring together all of the elements needed to visualize what your finished project will look like. What caught my eye about part of their display was the fantastic use of colour — wasabi green quartz countertops paired with crisp white cabinetry, for example. If you’re looking for something different and unique, Inspired Comfort definitely brought it to the forefront. inspiredcomfort.ca
With dealers located across the prairies, even reaching to western British Columbia, TimberStone Distribution was a new face this year in the masonry and landscaping products category. Showcasing a variety of interior and exterior stone selections from the likes of Environmental StoneWorks, Eden Stone, and Sioux City Brick, show-goers were treated to a mix of beautiful ledgestones, travertine and honed marble stacks, and natural slate panels. tsdstone.ca
Certainly not a newcomer to the city’s busy commercial and residential construction industry, Horizon Glass Ltd. (a division of Horizon Builders Ltd.) caught my attention with a great little nook in their booth dedicated to decorative glass products. Tempered, fluted, sandblasted, colour coated, and mirrored glass samples were a vibrant reminder of the wide variety of products and services Horizon offers to those looking for distinctive ways to freshen up bar tops, decorative wall inserts, shower doors, kitchen cabinetry panels, and even full height partitions.
