It could be because of the challenging times we are going through, there has been an affinity among people towards natural fibres through this year, which is bound to continue to in the next too. Cotton, linen and viscose fabrics have been popular. Especially people who understand furnishing fabrics, are veering away from polyesters and synthetic materials. They are particularly fond of linens. There has been a great surge in demand for linen fabrics, whether it is the linen jacquard, printed linen, or embroidered linen.
Velvets are another time-tested choice which is always going to be in fashion. They are versatile, cost-effective and with their plush look, they bring a luxurious vibe to any interior. They simply elevate the glamour quotient of any piece of furniture they cover – be it sofas, beds or chairs. Velvets come in prints and patterns, and with textures offering many options for versatile designs. So, it is velvets all the way for the Indian home furnishing industry for the next couple of years for sure.
Prints are also big right now, and we have reason to believe that it will be so in the coming years too. The vibrancy and delicacy of prints are an all-time favourite with customers. They also have a fast delivery rate and are cost-effective. With printing, you can create any design, pattern or motif and go really creative by using the colours of your choice. You can even achieve the water colour effect that is in vogue right now. With such diverse style options, printed fabrics will be the main selling point in the coming years.
There is also a huge demand for floral patterns, including the classical imagery – the Mughal style floral patterns, vines and motifs. Rendered in contemporary palettes, they are a timeless addition to any space.
