Blue one of trend colours at Heimtextil 2016

Blue emerged as one of the trend colours at Heimtextil 2016 and across all the Heimtextil ranges, from decorative fabrics and wallpaper to bathroom textiles.

“The tonality was wide-ranging; from light to dark, transparent to intense and cool to warm,” a press release from the organiser Messe Frankfurt informed.

“The rainbow of colour spanned from light aquamarine, turquoise and dusty blue to Prussian blue, petrol, ultramarine and deep midnight blue,” the organiser said.

“The silver and titanium looked sophisticated, as did the Bordeaux and Marsala and the richly contrasting orange, saffron and mustard,” it added.

The colour palette also included friendly green shades such as mint, jade, lemon and Reseda, often in combination with pink and fuchsia.

“Non-colours such as putty, cream, sand, taupe and mud have proven themselves to be a long-term trend regardless of season,” Messe Frankfurt observed.

New designs and technical developments were exhibited across all product divisions at Heimtextil 2016, which took place last months and at which 2,866 exhibitors participated.

These exhibitors showcased the materials, colours, patterns and shapes that will be on trend over the coming season and which technical refinements will provide a greater level of comfort.

“With its multifaceted product offer, Heimtextil gave the international industry a comprehensive insight into hot trends and new products,” Olaf Schmidt, vice president textiles & textile technologies said.

“Product designers and those interested in trends were able to garner lots of inspiration for the new furnishing season,” Schmidt too added.

According to Messe Frankfurt, Scandinavian fashion is regarded as trailblazing and Scandinavian design is now also being rediscovered for textile interiors.

“Characteristics include large-format graphics and clearly contoured botanic décors with a bold, self-confident appearance,” it stated.

“Home textiles have spent a long time focusing on florals, but graphic and geometric designs are now enjoying a huge revival, in a minimalistic style in the most varied of interpretations,” the trade fair organiser noted.

Also seen at Heimtextil were triangles and zigzags in a handcrafted stencil look, a trend, which also includes flower and leaf motifs that are often depicted in a highly abstracted and stylised manner. (AR)
