“Discover tomorrow’s trends today” - In cooperation with Heimtextil, international design and trend experts have analyzed the latest trend themes that will be shown in an extravagant presentation at the Heimtextil trade show taking place January 7-10th in Frankfurt, Germany. In addition, this year the focus is on the topic of sustainability. I’m looking forward to attending and covering the upcoming fair for the very first time and especially excited to be there for the celebration and party for the show’s 50th anniversary!
This year’s theme, “WHERE I BELONG” addresses layered identities via the five diverse Heimtextil 20/21 trends. MAXIMUM GLAM turns the glamorous life tech-savvy, PURE SPIRITUAL finds balance in nature and mysticism, ACTIVE URBAN values utilitarian, adaptable solutions, whereas HERITAGE LUX celebrates rich historical legacies and MULTI-LOCAL embraces global cultural influences.
Establishing five worlds as spaces to experience, the Trend Space will also showcase 2D visualisations from the book as 3D spaces. Conceptual installations will actively engage visitors and motivate them to share their experiences by creating dynamic settings all about performance and interaction. For Trend Space, designers have committed themselves to a new material manifesto to conserve resources and promote sustainability.

Award-winning Mexican design and interiors brand Dupuis along with its equally iconic sister brand Becara from Spain opened their doors in the Miami Design District earlier this month, marking the official launch of both brands in the U.S.
Dupuis, founded in 1973, creates an experience where the language of artisanal and contemporary Mexican design unite in absolute harmony, redefining interior spaces and exuding Mexican modernism in its purest essence. Their philosophy is based on constant evolution within innovative design while never losing the Dupuis style.
The Becara brand is a lively and eclectic collection of accent furniture and home accessories founded in 1964. It is inspired in part by the original decorative antiques sourced worldwide for its first retail store in Madrid. Becara has grown to be one of the leading European companies in design, manufacturing, and distribution of furniture, home fabrics and interior design accessories for the home.
Back in the 60s in Spain, Becara’s founder Begoña Zunzunegui recognized an opportunity in the wholesale business of home decor and gifts. Inheriting exquisite taste from her family and knowledge of international markets, she focused her efforts on developing a virtually nonexistent market in Spain. She pioneered and was an integral collaborator of renowned wholesale fairs in Spain such as The Intergift Furniture Fair of Valencia, Expohogar in Barcelona, and The Furniture Fair in Madrid.
During the 80s, Becara as a brand forged into international markets and exhibited at the most prominent fairs in Europe: Salon du Meuble de Paris, Ambiente and Tendence in Frankfurt, Abitare il Tempo in Verona, Maison & Objet in Paris, Salone del Mobili Milan. Becara’s presence would exponentially increase as exports to 40 countries around the world set it apart. In 2000, Becara began its retail expansion, opening its first flagship store in Madrid.
From that moment on, Becara set the stage where wholesale and retail activities overlapped, expanding further in Spain as well as international markets such as Bogota, Casablanca, Lisbon, Mexico, and most recently, Miami in the Design District in the US.
Founded in 1973, Dupuis is an iconic, award-winning Mexican design and interiors brand that for decades has remained a pioneering influence in the Mexican market. Today, with more than 45 years in the luxury furnishings and interior design business, Dupuis is poised to promote Mexican modernism in its purest essence on an international scale.
Dupuis was started to offer furnishings and accessories with a distinctive style, creating an experience where the language of artisanal and contemporary Mexican design come together in harmony. The philosophy is based on constant evolution within innovative design while never losing the essence of the Dupuis style.
For more than four decades, Dupuis has been dedicated to the advancement of design, manufacturing, and distribution of furniture as well as home textiles and decorative objects in collaboration with Mexican artisans. Carefully selected designers and suppliers collaborate to create unique and unmatched pieces of quality and aesthetics.
