On 13 and 14 September, you can once again meet up in Brussels Expo for Decosit Brussels. The fair takes place in Hall 10 and is organized by Fedustria, the professional association of companies from the textile industry in Belgium, which is developing the fair together with some of its members.
Decosit only targets professionals from the worlds of furniture and decorative fabrics and window and wall coverings, and they find a good range of products among some 20 exhibitors. It is a meeting point between professionals at an ideal time to view the autumn collections of leading companies in the sector. All of this in the heart of Europe, in the shadow of the Atomium.
Libeco and Davis Fabrics
For our preview, we approached a number of exhibitors who know Decosit Brussels inside out and who have participated for many years. After all, who better to assess the importance of an organization than companies that know the ropes?
“We hope that in time Decosit will regain the momentum of the nineties, when the fair was a benchmark for the furniture industry”, responds Bart Vandamme, co-CEO at Libeco-Lagae NV. “Today, however, the trade fair landscape is disrupted and people are looking for a balance, with Decosit having to reclaim its place, which is no easy task in these post-covid times.”
“Ideally, Libeco takes part in three interesting trade shows to present our linen fabrics: Heimtex in January, Proposte in April and Decosit in September. It gives us the opportunity to enter into a dialogue with our customers three times a year and to use that dialogue to adapt our collections. Hence our support for the organization of Decosit to make the next editions a success.”
At Davis Fabrics, people realize the importance of Decosit too. Area sales manager Ward van Vugt: “Over the past few years, Davis Fabrics has invested heavily in new collections. In addition to our basic collections, we have also for some time now been offering the Smart Edition (affordable furniture fabrics with an exclusive look and feel) and Smart Fabrics (furniture fabrics with added value, such as fabrics made from recycled polyester, pet-friendly fabrics, products with an easy-clean finish, etc.). Everything we offer can be delivered on full rolls or cut lengths from our central warehouse in Poland or shipped from one of the various warehouses across Europe.”
“Because the Netherlands, Belgium and France are major markets, we feel it is important to present our company and products here. At Decosit, we hope to show our latest collections to existing customers, as well as introduce our company to new contacts. Because of the presence of similar companies, the central location within the Benelux and the good general organization of the fair, we simply cannot miss participating. It is also a good time to put our confectionary department – Davis Home – in the spotlight: here we are responsible for the production of all kinds of finished products such as decorative cushions, plaids and even dog baskets tailored to the customer.”
Leotex, Green Street Fabrics and Weverij Van Neder
Leotex is also a well-known name on the exhibition floor. For more than 40 years, this company has been developing upholstery fabrics with a mix of beautiful design, wonderful hand feel, good quality and excellent functionality.
“The Leotex collection not only looks fantastic, but also fulfils what the market demands,” we are told. “The versatility of the collections makes them suitable for seating, accessories and beds, and we will demonstrate this once again at Decosit. It is no coincidence at all that we have been working together with satisfied customers all over the world for over 40 years.”
At Green Street Fabrics, visitors will find the usual mix of surfaces and designs. There is a focus on bouclé yarns and/or recycled yarns.
“We not only developed these in Belgium, but also made them here to the highest standards and with respect for man and nature. Anyone looking for a reliable supplier of reliable fabrics with a flexible service and fast deliveries has come to the right place at Green Street Fabrics”, states a company spokesperson.
Finally, Weverij Van Neder will also be put in the spotlight. Van Neder will be showing a new and exciting range of furniture fabrics.
“In two different collections we are showing our latest developments in jacquard velvet and chenille fabrics: ‘Boho’ contains a mix and match of distressed fabrics with slub effects, coordinating surfaces and large abstract graphic patterns”, reports the design service. “City Modern’ includes the perfect look for contemporary living, with strong geometric accents combined with cool new plain fabrics.”
Organized according to the fixed stand concept
We would further like to mention that Decosit Brussels is once again organizing according to its well-known all-in, uniform stand concept. This serves to unburden the exhibitor and put the focus on contacts.
