Florence, 21th October 2021. FIRENZE HOME TEXSTYLE, the only Italian international fair devoted to home, marine, spa, contract & hotel textiles, is back at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence. It is an unmissable event for the most qualified companies and for the most prestigious and dynamic brands of this sector.
Promoted and organised by Firenze Fiera, this exhibition has now reached its fourth edition, and is set to take place at the Fortezza da Basso from 4th to 7th February 2022.
The new edition features a ‘rebranding’ operation featuring a strong visual impact, inspired by the patchwork technique, obtained by collecting scraps of classical fabrics in vibrant and bright shades within the same visual, and by inserting the ‘Florence lily’ as a paradigm of the city of Florence.
Inside the over 11,000 square metres of Spadolini Pavilion’s lower floor, visitors will be able to admire the new collections of household linen, the latest proposals for upholstery, curtains, home, spa, marine, contract & hotel textiles, textile publishing and fragrances. On show, a wide and articulated range of home and indoor and outdoor products, with a special focus on ethic and sustainable processes and materials.
FIRENZE HOME TEXSTYLE is aimed at all the key players of the living and home décor world, in a period marked by a new way of living our own habitat, where people’s well-being is placed at the centre of attention as the real heart and soul of each project.
Thanks to the support of ICE – the Italian Trade Agency for the promotion of Made in Italy abroad and the internationalisation of Italian businesses, and Promofirenze – Special Agency of the Chamber of Commerce in Florence – for four days, the Fortezza da Basso will become a meeting point for selected companies and buyers, retailers, interior designers, concept stores, furniture stores, the main distribution channels, in addition to journalists, and industry influencers and bloggers.
The exhibition section will be completed by a full programme of side events, including seminars and workshops, featuring figures of international prestige coming from the living and interior décor world.
Continuing the path already traced by the Stanza delle meraviglie (Room of Wonders) – the event successfully held during the 2021 edition and dedicated to the excellence of Tuscan textiles – woven masterpieces will be on show at the exhibition, on loan from prestigious Italian museums and cultural institutions, such as the Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio (a foundation to preserve the silk art fabric weaving tradition), the Textile Museum in Prato, the Straw Hat and Straw Weaving Museum in Signa, and others.
“Innovation, sustainability and the culture of textiles will be the key points of the next edition of Firenze Home Texstyle which, in 2022, will open the season of the exhibitions directly organized by Firenze Fiera – said Lorenzo Becattini, President of Firenze Fiera – staging the excellence of textile products by presenting the new collections and organising side events mixing the heritage of Italian masters of art and the future-oriented impetus of design and home décor”.
Admission is exclusively reserved for industry professionals upon registration.
Opening times: Every day from 9:00 to 18:00 – On the last day: from 9:00 to 16:00
