I think I mentioned I have a ton more to show and tell about the Heimtextil show in Frankfurt. Well, today's post Is mostly show. When I hit a major trade show like this, a huge chunk of the takeaway for me is quirky styling and display ideas. Sometimes they are just wacky, but sometimes I can't wait to try them out at home or at a shoot. Often I file them away for future reference. Here are a bunch if ideas that delighted me at Heimtextil.
ABOVE: The perfectly imperfect bed. The linens on this one at Schlossberg Switzerland were perfectly steamed and crease and wrinkle free, yet the pillows askew and turned back duvet gave the bed a delicious inviting look. This is a styling approach I think you'll be seeing more of. There were many variations at the show. Click throw the gallery below for more:
Loved this green wall in the Sustainability trend area created by trend agency WGSN.
Many of the plants are hanging in white bubble shipping envelopes - clever!
Moon woolens from the UK created this upholstered wall. So cozy looking.
Got a live edge table that's looking a little too 2010? Just add paint...some dribbles.
Stack several green stuffed stars with frayed edges to make an alternative Christmas tree. Wacky.
A fiat covered in toweling fabrics. Adorbs.
Same feeling but here it's all Peruvian alpaca....ahhhh.
Available block prints (so many!!!) displayed beside some of the quilts that can be printed in any of the patterns from Manglam Arts
The haphazard preppy stack.
Again, perfectly imperfect. Dreamy palette.
The twisted throw -- totally stealing this idea!
Cool cluster of baskets on the wall. And that wall colour! And the yummy bed.
Next level messy bed styling.
Fab wall o' pillows.
Standard pillow layering on one side, vertical stack on the right plus THREE turned back duvets. Dee-lish.
The Princess & the Pea!!
Groovy '70s colours. Terry toweling upholstered sofa.
Straw totes as pendant lights -- and a boat on top of the booth!
Artists studio styling to promote the notion that this company Essenza is all about original designs.
Great booth! Colour messaging is clear and everything is neat and tidy but abundant.
Entry to one of the best booths for sure! Art India gorgeousness.
And inside the doorway -- even more beauty to behold.
Best for last. The Cosmique Global of New Delhi, India booth was by far my fave.
Yum. Cosmique Global.
Colours, textures. Cosmique Global.
Best. Palette. Blush. Gold.
