Fashion underfoot: Trends and highlights of the upcoming Domotex Germany 2015

Home Press Release Fashion underfoot: Trends and highlights of the upcoming Domotex Germany 2015

Hannover, Germany—At Domotex 2015, being held Jan. 17-20 here, visitors are literally going to be floored by fresh flooring designs. As one of the leading trade shows for carpets and floor coverings, Domotex will reveal the underlying magic of appealing interiors by showcasing the best in woven, knotted and tufted carpets, parquet and laminate flooring, resilient and textile floor coverings, flooring installation systems and everything in between.

Major attractions at the show include modern hand-made carpets, classic Oriental carpets and fitted carpets. Some statement carpets to look forward to are “Frozen,” a textile commentary on global warming by Austria’s Beate van Harten and “Canvas,” an anti-war protest made of recycled army tents.

In the parquet and laminate flooring segment, attendees can expect to see lots of oak in natural, stained and aged finishes as well as specialty oaks such as the Lithuanian bog oak offered by UAB Grigo Studija. Thanks to advanced manufacturing techniques in resilient flooring, the move towards making installation easier for floor-laying professionals and DIYers has become increasingly popular. Beaulieu’s luxury vinyl tiles, which are designed to allow two carpet layers to work in parallel, are an excellent example of this.

The installation technology section of Domotex is dedicated to bringing maximum ease of use and simplicity to the hands-on, behind-the-scenes aspects of floor covering. For example, Astech has developed a screwless system for fixing timber and wood-plastic composite decking boards in outdoor areas. Once installed, the boards can be taken up again with the aid of a small metal key.
