Heimtextil, the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles, is hosting 2,975 companies from various parts of the world, showcasing design innovations. Focusing on the textile interior design, the ongoing trade fair is presenting a large selection of bed linen, bedding, mattresses, bathroom textiles and table and kitchen linen.

"Heimtextil is on a growth course for the eighth consecutive year and is continuing its remarkable success story in a challenging market. Over the next few days, we will be experiencing a globally unique design show with a variety of product innovations and textile inspirations by international market leaders," said Detlef Braun, CEO of Messe Frankfurt, organiser of the fair that will conclude on January 12.

The high-calibre event programme with renowned industry experts is highlighting themes related to furnishing trends and design, architecture and the hotel industry. In halls 8 to 15, around 1,500 suppliers are presenting ready-made products in the bed, bath and table segments. The bedding offer stands out here as the world's largest range of such products.

Martin Auerbach, managing director of the Association of the German Home Textiles Manufacturers, is pleased about the continuation of the trend towards more materiality in private and public spaces.  "Home textile products are again significantly more visible than they were a few years ago. This confirms the signals we have observed over the past one to two years. The diversity of home textiles products, designs and colours makes the international trade fair platform for home textiles a trailblazing annual event to start the year. Although the economy over the past year is likely to remain below expectations – not all of the figures from German industry are available yet – the overall mood in the sector is good," said Auerbach.

A new section 'All about pets' has been introduced at Heimtextil. The new product group presents selected suppliers of textiles and accessories for animals. Further, a central role in the trade fair’s programme is played by the range of contract furnishings and fittings, which Heimtextil sums up under the title 'Interior Architecture Hospitality'. This segment is specifically aimed at architects, interior decorators, interior designers, project planners and hoteliers.

Titled “The future is urban”, the Theme Park at Heimtextil is a trend and inspiration area for visitors and exhibitors alike looking forward to a wealth of material innovations, colour trends and new designs. For the 2018/19 season, a team of seven international design studios have isolated the most important themes from various general trends. The London-based studio Franklin Till was in charge of the design of the “Theme Park” in hall 6.0. (RR)
