An attendee favorite, the Texworld Trend Showcase returns to the show floor with the latest material innovations and color palettes for the Spring/Summer 2024 season, curated by New York-based agency, Doneger | TOBE. Along with spearheading the design for the showcase, Creative Director Kai Chow will offer insight into the four unique themes surrounding his vision during a one-day only seminar and Explore the Floor tour of the trend showcase on Wednesday, February 1. Chow will provide attendees with a deeper understanding of the encompassing theme of ‘SOBRIETY’: “We usher in the dawn of a new state of mind, a collective shift in the ways we live, think, and create. Seeking seamlessness in both life and design, we prioritize body and mind. Now we see value in nature, and we find abundance in simplicity. Innovation goes beyond the ordinary, blending the organic with the human-centric. No longer are we simply recycling the past, we are now reinventing the future.”
