An emerging trend at the Showtime upholstery textiles market came from dimension. Specifically, cut velvet and cut-velvet looks showed up with more frequency as the next step for already popular velvet fabrics. In the most innovative examples, the exposed ground around each icon or pattern included a jacquard-woven design, creating a layered landscape. Or higher pile than we have seen in the past made the up/down variations in the pattern more obvious.
Chenilles and bouclés mimicked the high/low look, too. But whether done in velvet, chenille or bouclé, the range of patterns confirmed that dimensional techniques will be applied to textiles broadly, touching many style categories.
This is all part of a larger trend, in which more is better throughout décor—more texture, more pattern and now, more dimension.
