ABSTRACT
This article presents updates on the carpets and rugs industry as of October 2004. According to WGSN, carpets and rugs are enjoying a revival, with consumers favouring character-filled comfort over bare-floored minimalism. Rugs and carpets add personality to rooms, while creating a warmer environment and pinpointing a specific mood. The return to maximalist environments is not the only driver of this change, as rugs gain renewed interest from designer collaborations, innovative patterns and new materials. This report from WGSN July 2004 underlines the Woolmark trends that wool is becoming a stronger fibre trend both in apparel and interiors for the forthcoming season. Carpets, curtains and wallpaper are concealing the coveted minimalist look recent years, with rooms now being adorned with knick-knacks and antiques. Homeowners have realised that laminated or bare floors, along with painted walls do not deaden sound and give a cold feeling to a house. Wallpaper has become easier to hang, with new designs merely requiring the walls to be pasted rather than papered first.
