10 Product Highlights from Heimtextil 2019

For anyone looking for the latest innovations in textiles and wallcoverings, Heimtextil was the place to be this month. The 2019 edition of the world’s largest trade fair for home and contract textiles—held January 9-12 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany—drew nearly 70,000 visitors from 156 countries, including retailers, wholesalers, designers, furniture and bedding stores, interior designers, and architects. From botanical motifs and snake-like patterns to tech-forward products that do not sacrifice style, here are 10 of our favorite finds.
