The year 2020 marks the end of one decade and, of course, the start of a new one. And so it is that the interior design world, with its dynamic, ever-changing trends, will also see transformation during the upcoming era. Furthermore, Heimtextil, as one of the biggest international trade fairs for home and contract textiles and also the first trade fair of the year for its sector, will be reflecting these new themes and ideas. Held in Frankfurt am Main from January 7 to 10, Indonesia Tatler has been invited to attend the exhibition, which is the season opener for innovative textile trends as well as a place to find everything from textiles to interior designs.

Many international trade visitors and business decision-makers will attend Heimtextil to search for the patterns, colours, and trends of the season. And in addition to the big-name exhibitors who are the mainstay of the event every year, many start-ups and promising newcomers will also be showcased. Meanwhile, one of the highlights will be Heimtextil Trend Space with the overarching theme “Where I Belong”, which addresses layered identities through five diverse Heimtextil 2020/2021 trends: “Maximum Glam”, which turns the glamorous life tech-savvy; “Pure Spiritual”, about finding balance in nature and mysticism; “Active Urban”, which values utilitarian, adaptable solutions; “Heritage Lux”, which celebrates rich historical legacies; and “Multi Local”, which embraces global cultural influences.
These themes are also intended to show that one size certainly does not fit all. Stijlinstituut Amsterdam, one of the members of the Trend Council of Heimtextil, invited four design studios and two photographers to capture the core of each theme. The Heimtextil Trends, which Messe Frankfurt has been announcing annually since 1991, are regarded as a trendsetting tool for the global textile furnishing sector. They are scouted for by a team of international design firms who look at different developments at the outset of each season and determine the most significant and influential international trends.
For Heimtextil 20/21, the Heimtextil Trends are set by the Trend Council with the following members: Stijlinstituut Amsterdam from the Netherlands, FranklinTill Studio from the United Kingdom, and SPOTT Trends & Business from Denmark. For more information regarding the event, visit here.
