Written by AtlanticCape on . Posted in News & Trends

Our AtlanticCape team recently visited Major Dubai Retailers and attended the Fabrics Intertextile Show. Here is what they found:-

Each store presented it's own unique take on current trends & colours; however, overall the following emerged:

  • Geometrics – seen everywhere: from monochrome to bright and bold, from modern sharp lines to ethnic patterns and softer ikat edges
  • Soft and feminine patterns in the natural colours were still dominant but Blue colour was Huge across all patterns – from feminine watercolours & Delft, to bold geometrics
  • Moroccan patterns were also very prevalent
  • Grey underpins almost all colour themes – very important colour for furniture especially
  • Oversized generous seating – indoor and outdoor
  • Reclaimed materials – more noticeable in case goods – lots of reclaimed pine in raw natural colours, emphasising the dominance of heavy natural grains and textures
  • Exposed seams – leather and fabric
  • Contrast stitching and piping
