Several Edmonds businesses will be participating in the Seattle Home Show 2 Oct. 12-13. The show is the fall version of the oldest and largest consumer home show in the nation and it will take place at CenturyLink Field Event Center.
Everything from the latest products and services for the exterior and interior of the home, including home improvement seminars, free art and antiques appraisals, cooking demos and more will be under one roof when this annual housing extravaganza celebrates its 21st annual run.
Among the Edmonds businesses to exhibit in this year’s show are Cabinetpak Kitchens, Chermak Construction, Contractor Hotline and Forecast Solar. Also exhibiting is My Edmonds News sponsor Irons Brothers Construction.
Brand-new to Seattle Home Show 2 is “The People’s Choice” award for the best in interior design, where the public has the chance to see and vote for their favorite design created by the Northern Pacific Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) community. More than 70 entries representing the best in both residential and commercial interior design by interior designers from Washington, Idaho, Alaska, Alberta and British Columbia will be in the People’s Choice display. The winner will be revealed October 21 as part of the IIDA’s annual awards competition at McCaw Hall.
