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

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.

Lenzing redefines softness in textiles

Without softness there is no comfort

Softness is the key to comfortable textiles. With Lenzing Modal®, MicroModal® and MicroModal® AIR fibers, softness can be obtained in textiles in a completely natural way. The higher the share of MicroModal® or MicroModal® AIR in the textile, the softer and suppler it becomes. Using a variety of different test methods, Lenzing has set a new standard, which gives new definition to softness and shows how Lenzing Modal® fibers can change a textile’s degree of softness. This test method combines the well-known ring method with a new technology specially developed for textiles with Lenzing – the TSA method (Tissue Softness Analyzer).



Measurable softness


Softness is the key to comfortable textiles. And this is something the user has to be able to experience, both when deciding to buy a textile and when using it. Judging softness is an individual, dynamic process that results from the interplay between textiles and the skin. To depict this complex sensory interaction in an objective way, scientists are working on physical methods to measure softness.


Softness is an individual feeling. The goal is to make it measurable.

MicroModal is the winner
Textiles of MicroModal attain the highest level of softness. Thanks to the low fiber rigidity and fiber cross-section, Lenzing Modal fibers are natural softeners. In 100% of cases, the fibers develop pure softness and produce wonderful textiles with outstanding comfort. They also last longer since textiles made with Lenzing Modal remain as soft as they were when they were new and do not harden after several washes.

Tactile softness
Physical measuring methods are one way to determine softness. However, the human hand should serve as the primary method to test softness. And here again, in touch tests MicroModal was convincing. A panel of 17 textile experts felt MicroModal and declared it to be the softest fiber among cotton, viscose, and Lenzing Modal fibers.

Wheeling, III. —Drawing inspiration from the energy and graphics of the urban landscape, the 18 new patterns in the fall 2016 Cityscape collection capture the eccentric life of the big city. Bold, large-scale textiles dominate the new collection, representing Brentano’s dedication to create functional art.

Inspired by connections and intersections, Junction’s textured lines create a geometric motif that is as structured in design as it is in construction. With a stain resistant finish and acrylic backing, the 54” upholstery merges contemporary design with contract performance and adds a point of interest to any interior. Available in seven colorways— from soft contrasting neutrals to vivid red and cool teal – Junction’s path is quite intriguing.
