Heimtextil showcases four new trends for homes

A team of six international design agencies has been commissioned by Heimtextil to identify four key trends for the home, under the heading of 'Well-Being 4.0”, the overall trend for 2016/2017.

According to a press release from Messe Frankfurt, the organisers, here, 'Well-Being 4.0' describes scenarios for soft furnishings that create an inviting environment with that feel-good factor, a place to relax.

There are four major trends at some of the new and trend-setting products from Heimtextil exhibitors in 2016.

Protect is a clean aesthetic and unfussy design and defines a domestic style which offers protection, both in physical and mental terms and bases itself on a notion of calm, meditation and wellness.

“The colour palette for 'Protect' reflects its concept of purity and lightness and associated with the trend are notions such as cleanliness, lightness, softness and snugly cosiness, calm and gentle sensitivity,” Messe Frankfurt added.

Another trend, Energise, is an intuitive, highly energetic trend stream, which links human beings with technology and leads to a new level of energy, whereby light is used as a material to create immaterial forms.

In this trend, the colour palette shifts between strong and weak contrasts and pulsates with highly-charged levels of energy, with innovative materials and fluorescent colourways.

One more trend, Nourish, is the sustainable and ecological vision for well-being, where natural materials are paired with forward-looking design and where the dominant colours are green and earth tones.

“The Nourish trend in home furnishings embodies the search for a world, which brings together town and country in a new architectural and design concept,” they stated.

Enrich is a trend that brings fashion to interior design and where opulence and highly ornamental elements echo our cultural past, at the same time as pointing us towards the future.

“Saturated colours, metallic accents and iconic patterns embody this fusion of influences from East and West and is for those who like dramatic settings, luxury, drama and opulence in their homes,” the organiser informed.

Heimtextil, international trade fair for home and contract textiles is being held from January 12-15, 2016 in Frankfurt am Main. (AR)
