Heimtextil Designer Team IDs Trends for 2015-2016

heimtexil 2015FRANKFURT, Germany-With the 2015 Heimtextil scheduled for Jan. 14-17, the trade show's International Designer Team has compiled four major design trends that will be featured at the show.

The overall theme for these trends is "Experience," in which everything revolves around consumers' sensory experiences, according to a statement from Messe Frankfurt, the show's organizer. Under this umbrella, the "Sensory" trend comprises delicate, "somewhat clinically cool colors" such as Whisper White, Spa Blue and Moonstruck, according to the statement. The "Mixology" trend is characterized by contrasting dynamics, bright colors and ethnic patterns.

The "Discovery" trend is an attempt "to create profound feelings with pronounced fabric structures and colors such as black, purple and silver," the statement said. The "Memory" trend stresses picturesque and romantic images with "saturated colors" including True Navy and Scarlet Sage.

"All these textile trends have one thing in common: a yearning to satisfy one's desire for well-being and luxury," the statement said. "But they also fulfill the principle that aesthetics and functionality always go hand in hand. The one can never be found without the other."
