Design & Innovation Spotlight
Sustainability and climate change are of rising importance, so this new dedicated feature will shine a spotlight on how the flooring industry can really make a difference. Trend forecaster, Sally Angharad, will curate the most pioneering products on display at the exhibition. Samples will be on display to help retailers, architects, designers, and contractors make selections to help with the autumn buying season.
Floor Art Gallery
Master fitters from McNicholas Flooring and Peter Jones Carpets & Beds, will produce two dramatic pieces of art created from LVT and carpet at the brand-new Floor Art feature. Enhance your skills in LVT and carpet fitting, learn about working with new products, and understand how to create unique and bespoke designs using the latest carpet and flooring products. After watching these talented master fitters at work, join them for the final reveal of their amazing creations at the end of the show.
The Wool Trends Centre
British Wool are teaming up with wool specialists Adam Carpets, Axminster, Brockway, Cavalier, Penthouse, Ulster and Westex to champion the benefits of wool flooring products.
Wool carpets are a natural foundation for our homes and the green palette, the colour of nature, is the colour trend of the season. Be inspired by the impressive ’50 Shades of Green’ display which is this year’s focus of The Wool Trends Centre, and will showcase a collection of sea greens, fir greens, olive greens, grey greens and grass green colours of varying patterns and textures.
New floor laying techniques and insights into working with the latest products will be found at the Demo Zone, run by the Flooring Industry Training Association (FITA) and supported by the Contract Flooring Association (CFA) and National Institute of Carpet & Floorlayers (NICF). Positioned in Hall B, these live demonstrations will focus on best practice installation techniques covering a wide range of flooring types within the domestic and commercial sectors. See below for the full programme listing:
