September 9, 2010,
FRANKFURT, Germany-Messe Frankfurt, owner and manager of Heimtextil, have issued the Heimtextil Trend Book, presenting textiles design trends for 2011 and 2012.
The book is based on the 2011/2012 Heimtextil Trend Reconnect, a show on interior decorating themes and trends developed by Caroline Till and Kate Franklin of The Future Laboratory, a Great Britain-based style agency. For the first time, the various trend directions have been split into four distinct themes:
oMix Mash, combining high technology with craftsmanship, new and old
oUtility, standing for simplicity, accessibility and an invitation to use
oWilderness, being at one with nature
The Till-Franklin presentation emerged from a recent creative conclave involving six international style agencies. The next Heimtextil is scheduled for Jan. 12-15, 2011.
