Carpets and rugs, wallpapers, textiles – the revival of fabrics in the living area

Tags: , , , , ,

For a long time, carpets and rugs had it hard in modern households, whose fashion-conscious members preferred to rely on wooden floors and other textile-free materials when it came to choosing the right flooring.

Walls had to be equally clean – homeliness achieved, at best, with an occasional lick of paint to relieve the otherwise uniformly white walls. But gone now are the days of minimalism and the accompanying lack of textiles in the home. At imm cologne, exhibitors at the “Pure Textile” special event await with a wide palette of new designs and grades of fabric for every situation and circumstance.

Rugs and carpets are enjoying a comeback with models in a previously unseen variety of colors and forms, and wallpapers for every taste and wallet are taking back the living space. Woven accessories such as decorative fabrics and cushions – particularly those made out of natural materials – are currently right on trend.

Border rugs are making a particularly strong comeback nowadays. Laid over smooth wooden or synthetic floors, they provide homeliness and can fundamentally change the ambience of a room. The Danish label &Tradition renounces familiar archetypes with its models: “The Moor Rug” from design studio All The Way To Paris places the focus on unusual shapes that are reminiscent of cut gemstones. The Björk Wool Rug Collection by Swedish designer Lena Bergström for Design House Stockholm brings birch to mind with its intertwined, black-and-white structure. The interlaced effect is developed by knitting together woolen threads of different gradations of color during the weaving process. Wool is not only especially warming: thanks to its natural oils, it is also dirt-repellent. The range is rounded off with a pouffe in the same look. Likewise for Design House Stockholm, Icelandic designer Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir has created a quirky cushion: The Knot Cushion consists of a voluminous knot that is tied using a metres-long knitted tube, making the colorful models as comfortable as they are eye-catching. Walls, too, are becoming cozy. The ADO CoverTexTM wall covering system from ADO Goldkante offers new options in room design. Not only walls, but also cupboards and room dividers can be upgraded with a variety of fabrics in different designs. A positive side effect of the system is that it improves the indoor climate, provides heat insulation and serves as a sound absorber. But the wallcoverings at imm cologne are not all made out of fabric – the event will also showcase paper and other wall-adhering materials, offering many inspiring ideas for lining the inside of the home in appealing and original ways. Modern wallpapers work just as well as background players as they do as lead actor, depending on the furniture alongside which they are to be staged. Elegance prevails at Zimmer+Rohde: the company’s “Identity” wallpaper collection epitomizes elegant reserve with subtle, glamorous effects. A fine patina and the interplay of matt and gloss distinguish the models in the range. At this year’s imm cologne, the German Wallpaper Institute (Deutsche Tapeten-Institut/DTI) also will once again illustrate the trends in wallpapers. “Wallpaper offers the freedom to express what we are feeling in a way that virtually no other interior design medium can. Our unusual, ambiguously colorful shared accommodation symbolizes the variety of color and the resulting options this variety offers people to live life in their own way. Wallpaper facilitates individuality and change instead of mainstream and monotony”, affirms DTI’s Managing Director Karsten Brandt. Homeliness and cosines are in strong demand again. But textiles allow for much more than just a feeling of well being; their many positive characteristics make them valuable aides and outstanding accessories in the living area.

Trevira CS at MoOd Brussels 2016

Tags: , , , ,

The fiber manufacturer Trevira is making an appearance at the new fair location in Brussels, based on its tried and tested concept and working together with a total of eleven partners. As in recent years, Trevira CS yarn partners Vlnap from the Czech Republic and Lei Tsu (Italy) are presenting their latest products at MoOD Yarns, while Trevira itself will be on show on the Trevira CS Contract Square, along with nine fabric manufacturers.

Trevira has further extended its range of spun-dyed yarns with new developments, including mélange hybrid yarns for stiffened textiles. In the collections a noticeable trend is evident towards more color and this is reflected in the supply of new fiber and filament yarns. Trevira and its yarn partners are also offering an extensive selection of melange yarns, reflecting the natural shades which continue to be  topical.

At the end of the first half of 2016 the fiber manufacturer on balance expresses its satisfaction with business. With their strong Trevira CS customer base in Western Europe, home textiles are doing well, and there is increasing activity in Asia, which also has the support of the network of Indorama Ventures, the majority owner of Trevira. Increasing numbers of enquiries are coming from India, Pakistan and China. These orders, however, are subject to the special brand policy for Asia, whereby the fabrics produced there are destined for the regional market.

Besides the continuing good business in hybrid yarns, filaments show a rise in standard polyester activity in the home textiles sector – there has been an increase in volume, mainly in filament yarns for velvets.

Flame retardant Trevira fibers and fiber yarns are gaining more and more ground in technical applications, accompanied by a steadily rising demand for spun-dyed qualities – which is translating into positive results in sales figures. Here the base lies in customized development projects aimed at joint exploitation of market potential in Europe, North America and Asia.

Spring wind blows at furniture sector

Tags: ,

MOSDER, which keeps its finger on the pulse of the furniture sector in Turkey, presented the 2015 spring-summer trends in furniture. Furniture for this spring-summer season is fashioned in colors of nature such as shades of green and hues of blue sky with floral patterns adorning couches and armchairs.

* The spontaneity of town life reflected in furniture in 2015

Fashion and trends in fashion are shaped by the spirit of the time and are also reflected in home decoration designs. People wishing to keep abreast of the trends in furniture design are very particular in their choice of combination furniture and the reflection of their tastes in the style of their homes. Well-known furniture manufacturer brands on the other hand, respond to consumers wishes and introduce furniture designs that address different tastes and in a manner that would allow different combinations. These manufacturers that also choose to increase the number of accessory options they provide follow fashion and keep their fingers on the pulse of consumers in home decoration.

MOSDER, which lends direction to the furniture sector in Turkey, presented this year’s spring-summer furniture trends. In these early days of spring we have started to feel the joy of the season in furniture designs. The furniture designs that fashion natural colors in combination with floral designs with touches of wood veneer offer varieties to decorate the homes of every taste and style.

Country style will be dominating our homes

The furniture designs adorned with peacefully natural and pastel shades, detailed with floral and plaid patterns fashioning wood veneer details made of spruce and fir trees aged in time provide country style reflections. Those preferring to experience the artlessness of town life in their homes as reflected in the country style adopted in the furniture trends of 2015 spring-summer season, can do so now. The country style that generally offers refreshing environments, thanks to the earthy tones it fashions, also adds a different flare in these months of spring and summer to homes with wooden details that match this season’s furniture pieces. This style, which is formerly recognized to be nostalgic, is being reshaped as modern country in new furniture designs.

MoOD acquires Indigo Brussels Home Edition  

Tags: ,

As of 1 April 2015, and following ten years of intensive cooperation, Textirama vzw, the fair organization of MoOD- Meet only Original Designs, takes over Indigo Brussels Home Edition from Première Vision S.A. To Textirama vzw, this acquisition is a new step in the strategic positioning of MoOD – Meet only Original Designs. 

A strategic choice for both fair organizations

Textirama vzw considers the take-over of Indigo Brussels Home Edition as a logical evolution, but also as a strategic choice for the expansion of the unique position of MoOD. MoOD is the only show in the trade fair market that focuses on direct contact with producers of upholstery fabrics and window and wall coverings. In doing this, quality and creativity play a key-role. Therefore, the choice for Indigo Brussels Home Edition, the absolute market leader with regard to textile design, is a strategic asset for the organization.

Première Vision S.A.’s choice to sell Indigo Brussels Home Edition to Textirama vzw is the result of a strategic refocusing of all its activities by concentrating exclusively on the fashion industry. But at the same time, the decision is also the logical consequence of more than 10 years of partnership, in which MoOD and Indigo Brussels Home Edition were organized side by side and during which both fair organizations supported each other intensively. As a result, Première Vision’s management considers Textirama to be the natural acquirer of Indigo Brussels Home Edition and stresses the importance of the strengthened future synergy between both fairs that will even increase the interaction and the efficiency.

Textirama vzw looks back on the constructive, dynamic way in which it has been able to cooperate very intensively with Première Vision. The MoOD-team wishes to thank Première Vision and its team for the successful development of Indigo Brussels Home Edition alongside MoOD. Textirama vzw stresses it will ensure the continuity of this recipe for success and will strengthen it in the future.

Historically logical

MoOD and Indigo Brussels Home Edition have been inseparable for more than 10 years. The sister fairs were already organized together when MoOD was still known as Decosit. Back then Decosit concentrated exclusively on upholstery. In 2009 however, the product range was extended to window and wall coverings. After Decosit’s name was changed into MoOD – Meet only Original Designs –, both fairs remained linked inseparably. For some time already, both the visitors and exhibitors of MoOD were requesting parties for a strengthening of the synergy. Now, the merger of both fairs strengthens the continuity of what is on offer and it is at the same time a strong signal towards the exhibitors and visitors.

MoOD’s future begins today

Some months ago, MoOD presented its new vision for the years that lie ahead. MoOD becomes a ‘boutique show’. In short, even more than in the past, the emphasis will be on creativity, innovation, an independent style and a business class experience, full of future-oriented inspiration, color and style advice. Indigo Brussels Home Edition can only strengthen this experience. Thus, MoOD 2015 begins as an investment in the future.
