Hot Fabric Textures and Colors for 2014

Heimtextil is the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles and the global benchmark for quality design textiles of innovative functionality. Heimtextil if held in Frankfurt and is the first trade fair of the year held every January. The fair is a platform for manufacturers, retailers and designers and is a massive showing of new design trends.

The fabric textures and color displays in the booths in Frankfurt are a good insight to the hottest emerging color trends and designs for window coverings and home design. The Trends hall was the place to go and discover the look and feel of the next few years in textile design, with four installations exploring the forms and colors that just might make their way into our homes. I wanted to share some of the inspiration in color and texture that were seen:
