Trend Council 2019/20

Trend Council 2018 of the Heimtextil

Beginning with a meeting in February 2018, trend experts from three European agencies are working on the Heimtextil Trends for 2019/20. During the two-day workshop, the agencies compiled the latest tendencies from the fields of interior design, architecture, fashion and art with particular emphasis on developments in terms of materials, textures, colours and style. Subsequently, they defined the themes most likely to impact on design, which they then developed into a globally valid trend prognosis.

The following agencies cooperated on the trend themes for the 2019/20 season and now make up the new Heimtextil Trend Council:

Trends 2018/19 

The book and the showcase at the Heimtextil 2018 gave a comprehensive idea of how rooms will be designed in the future. How will we live, work, shop and cohabit? Four so-called Spaces provided a platform for upcoming lifestyle trends and presented numerous pioneering projects and creative works.
The trend experts have also worked on the development of an additional five themes that gave an outlook on the trendy colours, materials and designs of the 2018/19 season.


The Flexible Space Trend 18/19

The Flexible Space

This lifestyle trend shows solutions for big city dwellers who are increasingly living like modern nomads and in ever smaller flats. Designers, architects and planners tackle this challenge with a great deal of ingenuity and optimise the available space with convertible and adaptable design.

The Healthy Space Trend 18/19

The Healthy Space

We've long known the far-reaching effect that the spaces in which we live, work, learn and relax can have on our well-being. Designers, architects and materials scientists are increasingly searching for innovative design that promotes our levels of health, satisfaction, attentiveness and productivity. From the integration of plants indoors to new directions in wellness, the healthy space is on the rise.

The Re-Made Space Trend 18/19

The Re-Made Space

Another phenomenon of urbanisation is the rapid generation of waste. For the first time in history, the amount of waste produced in cities is growing faster than urbanisation itself. To conquer this huge mountain of waste, cities must understand that the future is to put waste on an equal footing with resources. This will make waste a starting point for new design.

The Maker Space Trend 18/19

The Maker Space

The maker movement has triggered a revolution in the manufacture of interior design objects. It has the potential to fundamentally change production, particularly thanks to the democratisation of digital manufacturing technology. DIY instructions, open source and downloadable designs make it possible for everyone to develop their own personalised products wherever they might be.


Relax / Recharge Trend 18/19

Relax / Recharge

Colours are known to influence moods and feelings. In contrast to current views, blue has been shown to be stimulating and red calming. Relax/Recharge is a transformative design option that uses the power of colours to bring the energy balance of over-stimulated urban living worlds back into equilibrium. Walls, floors and furniture are completely immersed in colour.

Perfect Imperfection Trend 18/19

Perfect Imperfection

Indigo, one of the oldest dyes in the world, is currently much in vogue among numerous current brands and designers. They are rediscovering indigo dyeing and accepting all of the foibles and the many colour gradations of this deep blue colour.

Soft Minimal Trend 18/19

Soft Minimal

Urban living systems are multifunctional and can be adapted. Soft Minimal focuses on interior designs and products that appeal because of their functionality and are valued for a lifetime. Cosy materials – wool, felt, linen and bouclé yarn – give a minimalistic flat some warmth and personality. A reserved colour palette of muted pastel colours and neutral shades complemented by matt black ensures timeless elegance.

Adapt + Assemble Trend 18/19

Adapt + Assemble

Freed of all excess frills, the designs appeal with geometric and interchangeable shapes and materials that are perfect for packing and transporting – travelling and moving made easy. The textile techniques used are simple and reliable. Industrial materials are reinterpreted and converted for home use. Bright primary colours ensure a playful appearance.

Urban Oasis Trend 18/19

Urban Oasis

Designers transform interiors into green oases in order to use nature to achieve an increased sense of well-being. Green is regarded as the most relaxing colour for the eye. Lush green shades are used to refresh both body and soul. Dark forest and sage green are mixed with matt pink. Textures that imitate nature ensure a full, soft feel.
