Messe Frankfurt Releases Heimtextil Trend Book

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:

oSobriety, a return to the essential and traditional

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.
