On 5 and 6 September, you have an appointment to the next edition of Decosit Brussels, at Brussels Expo (hall 10). If you are a professional looking to keep up to date with the latest trends in furniture and decorative fabrics, this is not to be missed. Don’t forget Francq Color’s colour trends seminar on 5 September. Online pre-registration for this has closed, but the organisers report that it is still possible to register on site (limited places!).

As always, Decosit, which is organized on initiative of the Belgian sector federation Fedustria, offers manufacturers and buyers a unique opportunity for personal contact. Here you will view the autumn collections of a number of leading companies, keeping you abreast of the very latest developments in the industry. The offer will be displayed in stands, with areas ranging from 10 to 40 m².

Decosit is growing slightly this year. Indeed, during this edition, no fewer than 20 participants are signing up, with a variety of nationalities.

A selection of what is on offer

Looking at the offering, we see a number of big names. One of them is the Belgian Weverij Van Neder, a manufacturer of high-quality seating furniture fabrics. This family-owned company will demonstrate how it relies on a collaboration with textile experts, which enables them to come up with a wide range in both jacquard and flat weave furniture fabrics.

Another interesting Belgian family business is perennial favourite Libeco, which has been around since 1858 and is the largest flax weaving company in the country. Here you will notice how a conscious decision is made to keep high-quality linen production for furniture fabrics and decoration local, with a focus on the smallest possible ecological footprint. Libeco has already been certified as a carbon-neutral company since 2014 and holds the quality labels Masters of Linen®, European Flax® and Belgian Linen™, among others.

A third firm is the – also Belgian – vertically integrated weaving company Ter Molst. It specializes in the design, production and distribution of interior textiles for upholstery and curtains. By housing design, yarn production, fabric manufacturing and finishing under one roof, Ter Molst offers fabrics that have been tested for top quality from the start. In addition to its Belgian headquarters, Ter Molst also has divisions in North Carolina in the US and Coimbatore in India and can thus be described as a true global player.

As an example of an international exhibitor, we can highlight Turkish company Tosunoğlu Tekstil, which will be present with sub-brand Integro. Tosunoğlu Tekstil targets the industrial and wholesale fabrics sector with modern and colourful high-quality upholstery fabric collections. Elegance and comfort stand in natural harmony by combining rich and original details in each piece.

Trend seminar and panel discussion

As if all of this were not enough, there is an additional crowd-pleaser during the fair: a colour trends seminar on 5 September by Francq Color. During this seminar Hilde Francq will guide you through the interior trends for autumn and winter 2024/2025. After the seminar, designer Axel Enthoven and doctor Frank Goes will share their insights on how to deal with colours from an economic and medical point of view. They will do so during an interactive panel discussion moderated by Annik Vandercruyssen. This event will be followed by a networking dinner.
