An overwhelming array of products, extravagant designs and inspiring special shows – visitors to next year’s Heimtextil can look forward to exceptional wall arrangements as the spotlight once again turns to wall designs at the international trade fair for home and contract textiles. All of the national and international top players from the wallpaper industry will gather in Frankfurt to start the year by unveiling their new collections.
“We have seen a tremendous boom in the wallpaper segment at Heimtextil and it is increasingly becoming a key area,” says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. “For the next event, Hall 3 – which is also where wallpaper manufacturers will be exhibiting – will literally be bursting at the seams.” Virtually all of this year’s exhibitors, both from Germany and around the globe, have announced that they’ll be there in 2013 as well. And there will also be a large number of new wallpaper providers, including both manufacturers and wallpaper editors. Belgium’s Arte, Italy’s Dedar and Jannelli & Volpi, the UK’s Graham & Brown, Argentina’s Muresco, York Wallcoverings from the USA, as well as German companies Erismann, Marburger Tapetenfabrik and Sahco Hesslein will be amongst the renowned providers presenting their new wallpaper ranges.
Wall Gallery to boast the latest trends
An overview of the very latest additions to the world of wallpaper will be front and centre in the Wall Gallery special show in Hall 3.1. It will showcase trendy and innovative wallpaper developments by German and international exhibitors, underscoring the diversity in the wall segment. The selection of wallpaper will be made by Stijlinstituut Amsterdam, which is also responsible for staging the Trend Show. The Trend Show in Forum 0 will illustrate the new Heimtextil trends for the 2013/14 season. It will also delve into the world of contemporary wall coverings and present a selection of the latest collections by wallpaper manufacturers, as well as highlights from other product groups.
