High Quality Woven Textiles Vision and innovation provide the spark to the spring offerings from De Leo Textiles. It’s a story of familiar sensibilities pushed beyond expectations. De Leo’s spring line is all about extremes – extreme textures, extreme geometry and extreme value. “De Leo always places an emphasis on unique constructions, but this season we are combining our innovative techniques to render all new and exclusive qualities,” says Katie Williams, Concept Design and Developmental Coordinator. “Some exciting introductions include our digitally printed jacquard velvets, new cross-dyed velvet emboss processes, and as always, many unique body cloth qualities at exceptional values.” Williams notes that one thing that’s not changing is De Leo’s commitment to style, quality and today’s trends. It has been a leader for more than 50 years in offering high-end decorative upholstery fabric to furniture manufacturers, hospitality resources, design studios and select fabric retailers.

“De Leo has always been a company focused on growth and innovation. In the past, we’ve done all we could to be on trend and keep up with the ever-changing desires of the market,” says Craig De Leo, CEO. He adds that this year, that means taking the customary beyond the boundaries, into the unexpected. De Leo prides itself on its high level of service, distinctiveness and consistent progression in the industry. “The company wants to ensure that whatever is being offered makes stylistic sense to our customer base, that the quality of goods being presented meets the requirements of the end user and that we remain in line with the trends of the marketplace,“ says De Leo. “We are making conscientious efforts to be ahead of the curve and to offer the market fabrics that only De Leo Textiles can provide. Through the development of original designs, the enhancement of goods purchased from our mills and the steady aspiration to be better than the season before, De Leo is driven by learning and evolving.”

Weaving Excellence with Innovation A lot has changed in the 60 years that Phifer Incorporated has been in business. One thing has not: their constant search for new ideas, new products and new processes. Their extensive line of quality performance materials attests to that. Phifer’s spring introductions represent a tropical theme, featuring classic patterns, bold colors and high texture. “Inspired by ethnic diversity, Bahrain and Sarasota Stripe are bold and stylish patterns for a one-of-a-kind look,” says Monica Thornton, Senior Designer at Phifer.

Phifer’s Bahrain and Sarasota Stripe patterns create a distinctive aesthetic. “Tropical patterns like Morocco and Boca speak to the emerging coastal resort trend,” according to Thornton. “Phifer’s bestselling Concordia is an updated

transitional geometric that will be introduced in four new colors this season – classic black, red, smoky blue and tropical turquoise.” Phifer also makes its own yarns and can match or create custom color yarns, allowing customers to explore their vision and express their own singular flair. “Our mission is to offer style, durability, comfort and recyclability in a unique line of plush furniture fabrics that will make you rethink what it means to be green. Phifer’s in-house sampling department features specialty sampling production equipment, which allows for quick turnarounds and flexibility on requests,” says Joan Worthy, Sales Representative, Designed Fabrics. “Using a state-of-the-art CAD system, Phifer’s designers can easily simulate any pattern, color or design,” says Worthy.

textiles: today & tomorrow An inside look at the industry’s changing landscape

Showtime® Feature


The textile industry is a study in contrasts as it embraces tradition while adapting to meet today’s challenges. The need for high-quality, on-trend fabrics, leathers and trims is as great as ever, while the technology and marketplace continues to evolve. Creating and delivering fabrics that offer the level of design and durability today’s consumers want is no small feat. Luckily, growing demand continues to fuel the industry. From online resources such as Houzz and Pinterest to HGTV and etailers’ flash sales, home improvement and interior decorating are hot topics. “We have a broader audience than at any point in recent times,” says Zack Taylor, president of furniture manufacturer Wesley Hall. A former textile executive, Taylor says this trend has made a big impact on his high-end, design-driven business. “The popularity of Pinterest has consumers paying more attention to design and home fashion than ever before. It gives them a language to communicate what they like and don’t like, even if they can’t verbalize it.”

challenge,” says Taylor. At Wesley Hall, the key has been responsiveness. “We try to be quick and nimble so we can react to the subtle nuances of the marketplace. As a privately-owned family business, we have the advantage of moving quickly and we’re always open to new ideas. But most importantly, we stick to who we are and what we offer.” Another opportunity for differentiation at Wesley Hall is that its home furnishings are manufactured domestically. Our experience is that consumers are attracted to and care about American-made products. It’s a big part of who we are and our branding,” say Taylor.

A Shifting Marketplace While demand may be steady, the textiles marketplace has changed dramatically in recent years. “The growth of imports has diminished the role of middle to better textile manufacturers,” says Lee Kabat, president of Home Accent Fabrics. “Not only has the pie gotten smaller, but we’re now splitting the pie too many ways.” Home Accent Fabrics responds to these challenges by keeping its overhead and staffing low. “We are very lean, we have a small infrastructure,” says Kabat. “Most importantly, we try not to be everything to all people—or else you’ll get swamped with inventory. We focus on being a boutique converter of decorative fabrics specializing in color, and we offer tightly coordinated lines.”

“Our experience is that consumers are attracted to and care about American-made products. It’s a big part of who we are and our branding,” says Taylor. ITMA Showtime® Market • June 5–8, 2016

Embracing Innovation Holding on to traditional models while embracing new methodologies and technologies is the challenge for today’s textile and home furnishings producers. Wesley Hall has embraced technology in its roles as both buyer and manufacturer. With the advent of fabrics such as Sunbrella® and Crypton®, the role of performance textiles has grown tremendously, says Taylor. “Performance textiles really resonate with consumers and are transforming the industry.”

Digital printing is also shaping the direction of the industry, says Kabat. “While the cost hasn’t yet caught up with the technology, the efficiencies over screen printing are significant.” Digital printing enables Home Accent Fabrics to produce lower minimum quantities while expanding its number of designs and colors.

Recruiting Talent “One of the main challenges I see our industry facing is the recruitment of new and fresh design talent,” says Todd Bowles, principal and CEO of Convergence, an NC-based textile design and merchandising consulting firm. “When I started my career there was young talent coming up behind me. But with the increase in offshore production, many domestic mills have shut down, making it difficult for young professionals to successfully make a living—so they abandon home textiles to pursue other design related careers or tragically, move out of design altogether.” ITMA is addressing this challenge with its mixers, internship program and Educational Foundation. “We need companies in our industry to attend ITMA’s events and realize the importance of hiring these talented individuals,” says Bowles. “They are ambitious, crazy-talented, and they are the future. We must start teaching them and grooming them to take the reins.” h

The company continues to embrace new technology in its manufacturing operations as well, including recent investments in automated cutting machines. “What I love about technology is you realize you can enhance and evolve your story, without sacrificing any part of it,” says Taylor. “People think about technology and have a job-loss mindset; that hasn’t been the case for us. Technology isn’t changing who we are, it’s supporting and enhancing who we are.”

Growing Future Leaders Recognizing the need to nurture and recruit young talent in the textile industry, ITMA has created its own Internship Program. Designed by ITMA’s Educational Foundation, the internship offers students opportunities to see and experience a variety of industry-related careers first-hand. The ITMA Educational Foundation committee consists of a mix of industry representation including upper management from member companies, furniture industry liaisons and studio owners. The goal of the internship program is to partner as many students as possible with ITMA Member company sponsors. Most internships are paid positions that last for eight weeks, although other opportunities may be available. Financial assistance may available through the ITMA Educational Foundation for sponsor companies, including $2,000 per intern for salary and an additional $2,000 stipend for travel and housing. The internship is open to upperclassmen and graduate students who have declared a major in textile design. For more information about this program, please contact ITMA.

Serenit 15-3919y

trend watch: pastels Rose Quartz 13-1520

What’s behind the growing popularity of these soft shades? By Trisha McBride Ferguson

www.Showtime-Market.com

Color’s immediacy makes it pivotal to great design and today’s color direction is firmly focused on pastels. An inspired option for homewares of all types, this on-trend palette celebrates a softer side of familiar hues. From shades of pink and blue to the purest whites, color experts attribute the popularity of these easygoing shades to consumers’ quest for calm. Offering a breath of fresh air in interior design, these delicate tints are prized for their ability to positively influence and counterbalance demanding lifestyles.


PHOTO CREDIT: Pantone

Pantone® advanced this momentum with its selection of Rose Quartz (13-1520) and Serenity (15-3919) for its 2016 co-colors of the year. Rose Quartz, a warm, gentle rose tone conveys compassion and a sense of composure while Serenity, a cool and tranquil blue, provides a calming effect. The pair were selected by Pantone as ambassadors to represent today’s collective mindset and to provide a much-needed sense of tranquility and inner peace. Transcending both soft and hard surfaces, Rose Quartz and Serenity bring a sense of calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes—matte, metallic and glossy—the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. For more splash and sparkle, combine them with silver or bright hues.

Challenging traditional perceptions of color association, the combination of these shades is groundbreaking. “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

New Product Appeal

Increasing in popularity across all areas of design, pastel hues complement trending design influences such as nature, nostalgia and geometrics. These candy-colored palettes offer new possibilities as they are mixed and merged with timely patterns and design-forward shapes and silhouettes. Designers in textiles, consumer products and interiors have an expansive palette of soft shades to draw upon as they combine it with elements of texture, function and luxury to create new looks with fresh appeal.

Whites Come on Strong

It comes as no surprise that major paint manufacturers chose shades of white to represent them in 2016. According to Benjamin Moore, white frames and flatters and offers a guide that directs the eye to multiple color encounters. Its 2016 Color of the Year, Simply White (OC-117), encourages an interplay of whites and light and creates nuance and subtle beauty. When paired with black, white conveys intent and celebrates form as fearless, high chroma colors punctuate the black and white landscape. Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year, Alabaster (SW 7008), is a true neutral symbolic of new beginnings. In a frenzied world of overstimulation, Alabaster offers a sense of personal solace and revival to weary minds. “Alabaster represents Alabas a straightforward and necessary SW 70 ter 08 shift to mindfulness,” says Jackie Jordan, Sherwin-Williams director of color marketing. “It provides an oasis of calmness, spirituality and ‘less is more’ visual relief. Alabaster is neither stark nor overly warm, but rather an understated and alluring white.” Whites can be used to set a tone for healing, rest and mediation in both residential and commercial spaces, offers Sherwin-Williams. They create a yin and yang harmony when paired with contrasting dark colors and can bridge transitional and traditional styles when used with light blushes or grays. Shades of white provide a neutral aesthetic, making it a versatile foundation for many design sensibilities.

The Power of Pinks Old Rose 17-1518

Blooming Dahlia 15-1520

Rose Quartz 13-1520

Representing the lighter, gentler side of the red family, pink conveys a sense of innocence and romance. A welcoming shade, its optimism has long been noted in references such as “rosy cheeks” and “rose-colored glasses.”

Influential Pastels


2017 Home Color Palettes Color and design are at a crossroads, according to Pantone’s Eiseman. “We’re all familiar with consumers’ constant desire to see something new, yet they still want, in many cases, to have somewhat of a familiar comfort level,” said Eiseman. “We have to assess our customers’ aspirations by using credible forecasts as a guide to invigorated color design palettes that will inform and encourage new color directions. The question is:

ACQUIRED TASTE – Characterized by a mix of colors and textures not commonly seen together, the shades in Acquired Taste combine for a palette that is refined yet luxurious. It boasts Orange Chiffon, Mulberry, Brandied Melon, Pale Gold, a dove gray and a muted pink.

What can we do to tweak our color palettes to make consumers stop and take notice?”

FOREST BATHING – A stress-reducing collection of shades, these looks are inspired by the Japanese practice of forest bathing (Shinrin-yoku). Relating the calming and mood-elevating properties of a walk in the woods, this palette features several shades of green and blue-green contrasted with Grape Kiss and refreshing Acid Lime.

Eiseman unveiled the 2017 Pantone® View Home + Interiors color palettes at the 2016 International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago. Designed for everdivergent tastes and styling influences, these nine distinctive groupings are: DAY DREAMING – A continuation of the Color of the Year pastel theme, this palette features colors that evoke and encourage thoughts that are light and weightless—in contrast and response to the heaviness and stresses of everyday life. This group expands on Rose Quartz and Serenity with colors such as Yellow Iris and Nile Green.

AT EASE – A step from Day Dreaming, At Ease offers a more sophisticated feel with shades that are grayed down and subdued. A selection of timeless neutrals, both warm and cool, are effortlessly blended with muted tones in an appealing new way. NATIVE INSTINCTS – Following style forecasts that point to a mix of design and color, Native Instincts offers true homogenization. It’s a palette where a piece of Native American pottery complements a Turkish kilim carpet or a pre-Columbian artifact, and it combines bold colors like a smoky orchid and a Carmine red along with softer Earth tones. FLORABUNDANT – Inspired by the sumptuous beauty of rich floral hues, Florabundant is infused with the colors of nature. It delivers drama from Pink Yarrow, Chrysanthemum, Red Dahlia and Baton Rouge and includes numerous shades of green.

www.Showtime-Market.com

REMINISCENCE – Reminiscent of a walk down memory lane, this color group conveys a sense of nostalgia and stability with traditional shades like Maritime Blue, Sepia Tint and Rattan. A mix of new colors such as Bird’s Egg Green and murky Martini Olive keep the palette feeling fresh. RAW MATERIALS – The re-use and re-purposing of materials from nature and the health and wellness movement are the foundation of this palette. Its many natural tones are highlighted by the unexpected pop of color provided by Zephyr Pink. GRAPHIC IMPRINTS – Described by Eiseman as “great fun,” this palette begins with a base of black and white and is punctuated with a series of strong, vibrant colors with names that tell a story, such as: Dazzling Blue, Fandango Pink, Orange Popsicle, Blazing Yellow, Opaline Green, and Prism Pink.

Timeless Color Choices While color offers many advantages, its emotional impact is profound. Color intelligence crosses all areas of design and is a critical component of creative expression. In every home and interior design application, pastel shades offer a myriad of possibilities while conveying a sense of order and peace. h

sitting pretty A quick chat about the role of textiles in upholstered furnishings By Trisha McBride Ferguson Who better to ask about the influence of textiles than a style leader in upholstered home furnishings? We talked with Holly Blalock, vice president of merchandising and marketing for CR Laine, about all things fabric and how they impact this design-driven manufacturer.

How important are textiles to your products? Well, CR Laine’s mantra is “Style. Comfort. Color.”—so they are essential to our business. Color is a big part of who we are, and it’s the fabrics that bring the color to our furnishings. And for me personally, textiles are my first love.

Why do you believe fabrics are important in upholstered furnishings? Textiles are the emotional part of the purchase—it’s the first thing that your eye is drawn to. If you walk into a room and you see a chair that has a fantastic pattern on it, when you go to tell your friends about it you’ll probably describe it as ‘the red floral chair’—not ‘the wing chair.’ Of course then you’re going to sit in the chair and decide if it’s the right size and softness, but I think the fabric definitely characterizes the emotion of the purchase.

How do your customers react to the textile aspect of your products? When retailers and designers are looking at our line, they tell us they are attracted to both our fabrics and silhouettes—and like consumers, it is often the textiles that catch their attention first.

What colors are you excited about right now? We have two color directions: we love our strong, bold colors and we’re also really embracing whispers of color. So you’ll see two color directions coming from us. You’ll see very light, icy blues—a palette we’re calling ‘Glacier.’ It includes leathers, sophisticated linens, and a polished cotton that has some surface sheen, yet no pattern—so it’s a modern solid. Also in this palette is a soft lilac, a blush and mint. In counterpoint to that, we’ve got our second color direction of richly saturated hues including cobalt and fuchsia. Additionally, we’ve got an exciting look using yellow ochre. It’s a saffron-like tone that pairs brilliantly with our deeper hues.

Can you describe some of the patterns you are using that inspire you? I’m very excited about this fantastic cobalt and fuchsia agate pattern (Little Rock) from our upholstery collaborator Tobi Fairley’s signature collection with Duralee. Another favorite is a sophisticated watercolor-type tropical pattern (Oasis Midnight), a floral without a flower, in shades of blue—it’s designed by Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke of Madcap Cottage for Robert Allen. One of my top picks is a little irregular ‘X’ that almost looks sewn, like a cross-stitch, but it’s printed. And there’s a Venetian over-scaled damask pattern that appears stonewashed and weathered with a vintage patina, that also looks amazing. h

Textile Technology Center– Training Initiative

The Textile Technology Center at Gaston College has received $150,000 in additional funding from the NC state legislature. This recurring money is targeted to help develop and train a skilled workforce for the textile industry, which has seen a dramatic resurgence in the past two years. In 2014, the textile industry in NC saw $523 million in new investment and the creation of 1,020 new jobs. As textile expansions are continuing, the need exists to train a new textile labor pool, as much of the available industry expertise and skill set has declined in recent years. The NC State legislature, in response to this growing need, has selected the Textile Technology Center to develop a textile training program in response to customer input and identified needs. A multi-faceted program, focusing on hands-on operator training and technical education/skills, has been established and numerous training opportunities have been made available this year for NC textile industry personnel. In addition to technical training by equipment vendors, textile educational seminars and training are also being offered to help educate new industry personnel on a variety of subjects (yarn data interpretation, fabric testing, and Textile 101 classes). High school outreach programs are also underway to educate students about the rebound in the textile industry and the new career opportunities available, with the aim to create a wider labor pool. The Textile Technology Center and its program participants are encouraged by the confidence and support displayed by the state legislature for this market segment and will continue to seek and respond to new training requests and needs. For more information about this initiative and the training options available, please contact Suzette McHugh at the Textile Technology Center (suzette.mchugh@gmail.com).

This pattern developed out of an interest in my environment, specifically the variety of visual information found on the exteriors of houses in Savannah, Georgia. Each home with an individual set of colors, quirks, and textures collaborate to convey an independent personality. When viewed as a community of homes, however, they nestle seamlessly together.

Inspired by a handmade paper yarn, Japanese Shifu Kimono, I noticed writing from the original paper was visible on the surface of the cloth. Thinking about this idea of hidden stories woven into fabric, I created a series that explored the transition of time and storytelling through hand-dyed color gradations and complex, layered surfaces. In this sample, I cut long orange yarn floats and used these tails to stuff the triangular pockets. Although parts of the story have been hidden within the fabric, evidence of their existence is visible through the orange edges on the triangles.

My focus was to capture these qualities by pulling elements from a mixture of the house exteriors and reimagine their interaction through a repeat pattern. These characteristics were then overlapped to evoke a similar experience of walking through the neighborhood streets of Savannah, Georgia.

The “Other” Market in High Point

Ask anyone in the furniture industry about “Market,” and High Point Market is likely top of mind for most individuals. But insiders are quick to give equal time to the vital importance of Showtime— High Point’s “other” market.

furniture segment. “A strong symbiotic relationship between High Point Market and Showtime is good for both events and the entire industry,” explains Tom Conley, President and CEO of High Point Market Authority. “We are always looking for ways to help all the players understand trends, source raw materials, and locate service providers.”

“Those of us in High Point are always eager to welcome Showtime,” remarks Tim Mabe, President and CEO of the High Point Convention and Visitors Bureau. “In fact, the economic impact of ITMA exceeds $1.6 million each and every time exhibitors and buyers honor us with their presence.”

Jerry Epperson, Founder and Managing Director of investment banking and research firm Mann, Armistead & Epperson, Ltd., echoes Conley’s sentiments. “I cannot imagine being an upholstery manufacturer in any segment and not going to the most important market to see the upcoming trends in pattern, colors, and textures,” he states.

Beyond the economic impact, however, High Point Market insiders agree that a vital interdependent relationship exists between the United States’ largest dedicated textile, leather, and trim show and the

SUITES AT MARKET SQUARE or “the suites”

“SMS”

The Suites house more than 90 well-established suppliers in addition to smaller suppliers and new vendors. It is also the location for educational seminars, special exhibits, snacks, food, and social events featuring food and drink.

Mabe sums it up this way: “We view fabric selection as part of the design process. You can’t have one without the other.”

RESOURCE CENTER & HOME FASHIONS “RC” RESOURCE CENTER “HFRC” or “the resource centers” These outlying buildings are located just a few blocks away on Wrenn and Hamilton Streets, and house another 15+ suppliers. A free shuttle ride takes you to the buildings, and then it’s easy to walk between the HFRC (formerly the Fabric Center) – shown above –, RC, and surrounding venues.

MARKET SQUARE TEXTILE TOWER or “the tower”

“MSTT”

An easy walk from the Suites through Market Square takes you to the elevators for the tower, home to more than 40 of the larger mills and suppliers of leather and trim. Showtime appointments are common, but “walk-ins” can sometimes be accommodated.
