We often talk about trend and what is happening in the future, but today I like to review what is happening on the product end of design regarding print, pattern and color at Heimtex.
Heimtex is the largest international textile show with manufacturers, designers and mills from 68 countries. The fair is a 4 day event located in Frankfurt Germany and takes place at the Messe Exhibition Hall.
Products ranges are tabletop, wallpaper, upholstery, bedding and fabric for both the residential as well as contract industries.
This show I found purple and tones of purple to be the universal color connector through many product ranges. Purple, plum, wine and eggplant were prevalent as main colors or accent tones alongside neutral grounds.
Casamance-Abstract geometric patterns in large scale repeats with imperfect edges. Lokser Textiles-Hand painted naive styled damasks.
Brewster-Organic floral patterns with geometric accents.
Pichler-Purple as a solid color statement.
Design Works International-Fun hand painted florals and medallions with textural accents.
Trend Hall Fabric-Artisan techniques like ombré, shibori and tie dye.
Posting from Heimtex, the largest international textile show, in Frankfurt Germany this week. Great to get an overview of art and product from around the globe in one location that focuses on all interior soft-home trends in textiles, wallpaper, upholstery and tabletop..just to name a few categories.
Happy to confirm that Pantone Rose Quartz 13-1520, paired with gray or taupe for a more unisersal look is trending at Heimtex. Shown here from Almeida and Pichler with updated faux fur and fun textures!
