The international home textiles industry has enjoyed a promising start at Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main, which finishes today. The challenging economic situation and uncertainty in the retail sector were countered by a positive and confident mood at the world’s leading trade fair.

For the ninth time in a row, Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main (8-11 January 2019) will see an increase in the number of exhibitors. ‘Despite the economic downturn, Heimtextil is continuing its extremely positive development. With 3,025 exhibitors from 65 countries, Heimtextil has a stronger and more international slant than it has had for 15 years’. It is thus further consolidating its position as the world’s leading trade fair for home and contract textiles’, says Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt.

According to a Bain & Co. report, sales of luxury goods are expected to grow between 6% and 8% this year, putting the market between $231 billion to $327 billion! This trend can also be seen in the luxury interior decor market. A few years ago, luxury in interior design meant golden bathtubs and wall-to-wall marble. Not anymore. Now, the perception of luxury in decor is less about “things” and more about unique “experiences” such as spa bathrooms and movie theaters. People want uniqueness; a look that no one else has in their home. This trend is opening up a huge market for digital decor products. With HP PVC-free Wallcovering, designers can print one-of-a-kind murals and wall effects that are limited only by their imaginations.

With any innovative technology, it can initially take time before we recognise and acknowledge its full potential. Think about the introduction of the iPad in 2010. At the time, everyone wondered what they would do with such an oversized iPhone, but since then, more than 350 million iPads have been sold — a multiple of that of tablet computers from other brands. In 2010, it was difficult to recognise the broad number of uses for the tablet, and in 2018, we see the same thing in digital printing for decoration of homes and businesses. The essence of the technology is clear, but what can you actually use it for? Focusing on a few inspiring examples of innovative digital print applications has the ability to drive a revolution in the field of interior decoration. Here are five tips to get you started.
