I recently attended Heimtextil, the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles in the world. This is where I find inspiration for Maxwell Fabrics and Telafina and begin development on our new collections. It was one of the best shows I've attended.
Now that I'm settled back in my studio and reflecting on the show, I found I’ve really had a chance to understand the direction of upcoming trends and the influences for which these trends are based on. Design ideas featured at Heimtex for 2014/15 are structured into two major categories - Progress and Revival. These two contracting themes come together and the concept becomes the key inspiration for lifestyle trends worldwide.
Progress is based on the idea that we must continuously innovate to improve quality and functionality. Technology is key as we look towards a sustainable future.
- Design direction - Flora and fauna prints.
- Most emphasized color - Green. In every tone from soft pastels to bright citron and continuation of rich emerald.
Revival is based on the idea that while technology takes us into the future we also must look back on past traditions and seek out purity and authenticity.
- Design direction - Natural materials that highlight if not emphasize nature's flaws in materials such as wood, stone, linen and metals.
-Most emphasized color - Metallics in tones of gold, copper and bronze.
These are a few key ideas influencing the design world now and into 2015 with exciting products planned in Maxwell's upcoming collections.
Don’t miss the February 2014 issue of Style at Home Magazine!
It features a six page spread on the magazine’s own Design Editor, Jessica Waks, and the overhaul of her 1934 Georgian-style home in midtown Toronto. Maxwell Fabrics was thrilled to participate by supplying fabrics to fulfill the vision of her “forever house”.
In the kitchen, Jessica created a banquette to maximize seating in a tight corner. “I had it covered in a shiny black faux leather with deep diamond tufts to make it feel like you were sitting in a restaurant.” The faux leather is our exclusive Big Horn #350 Ebony from Easy Rider.
Big Horn #350 was also used to upholster three stools to match the banquette and placed at the kitchen island. See below left with Jessica sitting happily.
In the family room, Jessica introduced hues like a rich sapphire chenille on the sofa shown below right. This rich sapphire upholstery fabric is our exclusive Soul Mate #10 Indigo. Soul Mate (available in Canada only) is from our Comrade book, a sumptuous collection of casually luxurious chenille textures.
For more information on the dramatic transformation of Jessica’s “Heart of Gold” home including details on the kitchen and family room design pick up a copy today or visit Style at Home.
