HIX EXPO: Surfaces, Textiles & Fabrics

HIX is the only place to find the entire hotel supply chain under one roof.

Across the show floor you’ll discover a curated edit of 150 leading suppliers representing the best of European design.

Here’s a taste of some of the surfaces, textiles and fabric collections on show at HIX, and the trends set to define the next generation of hotel interiors.

Zimmer + Rohde
Channeling the dynamic aesthetics of modern urban living, Zimmer + Rohde’s new City Vibes collection is a series of fabric patterns ranging from the sweeping brushstrokes of Hyde Park to the minimalist geometry of Piccadilly and the neon-inspired Times Square.

Inspired by hot magma dried in the Naples sun, the latest colourway for Laminam’s IN-SIDE range of surfaces recalls the distinctive heat-printed cracks and marks of volcanic earth with a warm brown hue that includes hints of shades from beige to champagne. Impact, stain and scratch resistant with an average water absorption of 0.1%, the surface can be applied to floors, walls, work surfaces, kitchen worktops and bathroom furnishings, as well as interior and exterior wellness spaces.

Warwick Fabrics
Launching at HIX, Warwick Fabrics’ new contract brand offers fully stocked furnishing fabrics for commercial spaces. Comprising heavy-duty Crib 5 upholstery weights and inherently fire retardant curtaining fabrics, the new division combines competitive pricing and fabric expertise for a one-stop off the shelf shop. Upholstery weights include velvet, faux leather and easy clean options alongside wide-width black-outs and dim-outs.

New patterns in Arte’s Décors & Panoramiques collection include the panoramic dreamlike visuals of Secret Silhouettes; the traditional Greek plasterwork-inspired Sculptura; and the natural woven Sisal agave fibres of Marqueterie – a geometric patchwork of colours and curved shapes.

Kobe Fabrics
Luxury contract-focused fabrics supplier Kobe will reveal its latest contract curtain and upholstery collections at HIX 2022. Find them at Stand 26 for a selection of Inherent fabrics comprising curtain weight, upholstery, voiles and sheers, ranging from staple plain and basic designs to the latest interior trends.
