Heimtextil 2016 novelties
New designs and technical developments were exhibited across all product divisions at Heimtextil 2016. Suppliers from all over the world showcased the materials, colours, patterns and shapes that will be on trend over the coming season and which technical refinements will provide a greater level of comfort. In the coming days we present a cross-section of novelties from all product groups.
Blue emerged as one of the trend colours at Heimtextil 2016 – and across all the Heimtextil ranges, from decorative fabrics and wallpaper to bathroom textiles. The tonality was wide-ranging: from light to dark, transparent to intense, cool to warm. The rainbow of colour spanned from light aquamarine, turquoise and dusty blue to Prussian blue, petrol, ultramarine and deep midnight blue. The silver and titanium looked sophisticated, as did the Bordeaux and Marsala and the richly contrasting orange, saffron and mustard. The colour palette also included friendly green shades such as mint, jade, lemon and Reseda, often in combination with pink and fuchsia. Non-colours such as putty, cream, sand, taupe and mud have proven themselves to be a long-term trend regardless of season.
