WHERE I BELONG was the overarching trend story at Heimtextil 2020 celebrated through five distinctive trend worlds. Each explores our varied identities through color, texture, and dynamic form; reminding us that the lives we curate define the relationship we share with the world at large. Below you’ll find a closer look at these trend worlds along with a selection of Crypton-equipped textiles that align beautifully with each.
Exemplified by raw, organic materials, the essence of the Pure Spiritual movement is grounded in purity and a reconnection to nature. Elements of mysticism are woven throughout, lending an ethereal tone that embraces nuanced palettes and subtle irregularities.
Inspired by a passion for legacy, ornamentation, and fascinating finishes, Heritage Lux transports you back to a time of magnificence and grandeur. Ornamental patterns and lush embellishments unite with rich, sensuous jewel tones for a modern spin on traditional applications.
The materials may be aesthetically specific, but the emotion evoked by these luxurious design elements is timeless and universal. Judicious use of luscious textures and tones such as the CF Stinson velvet and Cortina Leathers hand-textured natural hide can add immeasurable liveliness and warmth to contemporary spaces.
In its conceptual trend exhibit, Heimtextil invited pleasure-seeking designers to “revel in layering theatrical influences and glamorous showtime aesthetics, forging a fantastic marriage between the crafted and digitally rendered.”
Ideal for those who embrace a “more is more” mentality, extravagant colors, fringe and purposefully synthetic shimmer unite in a savage story of glitz and excess. Think of it as the new maximalism, a departure from those boho vibes of late into a rich, futuristic odyssey.
With a laser focus on functionality, this sporty trend blends tech performance and graphic patterns amid striking color stories. Think pitch black and vibrant blue meet creamy gold for a dynamic mix that exudes strength and confidence. Designers have been talking about the return of primary colors for a while, this trend adds bold pattern and black and white to the mix.
Hailed as an “homage to handcrafted decorative patterns,” this globally-influenced style is the ultimate portrayal of inclusivity, an exquisite ode to WHERE I BELONG. Tribal and geometric forms meet the abstract, tied together through traditional artisan craftsmanship and an earthy, agrarian color story.
