SUMMER 2018 OUTDOOR TEXTILES TRENDS: NATURAL EXTERIOR IDEAS
High-tech fabrics are blended with natural textiles and handcrafted finishes. Innovation and tradition, mixed and well avenues is one of the proposals of the foreign textile firms, which combines the warmth of the spot with flame retardant fibers, giving a high resistance and expanding their possibilities of use.
The return to the roots is mixed with the fusion of cultures and customs of a global and cosmopolitan world. The exaltation of the striking and the exotic to create a fascinating, dynamic and full of experiences is combined with organic textures, smoothly irregular that root with the earth. So it is common to see collections based on fabrics inspired by the African continent, versioned in different ways in terms of design and quality: prints, jacquards, embroidery … But we will see in detail the materials, textures, colors and star prints of this season.
THE MATERIALS: BETWEEN THE AVANT-GARDE AND THE TRADITION
As we have already pointed out, this summer there is a real fusion between lifelong and more technological matters. If the denim and the fresh tricot are of rabiosa actuality, the classics, like the cotton and the washed linen are not abandoned in any moment. The combination of both currents results in environments that transmit naturalness.
The importance of choosing resistant and washable fabrics is of special relevance in the exterior. So, for tablecloths we can select similar fabrics to the interior ones, although the option of tablecloths will give us an added functionality, being very easy to clean. As for cushions and upholstery, opt for parts with finishes that are resistant to humidity and that do not change color by the action of the sun.
Although neutral and light colors will always have a place in decorating textiles as a wardrobe background, experts agree that 2018 will be the year of color in fabrics and even more in summer. Bright, contrasting colors, fascinating in their diversity, that transport us to evocative spaces are the key to an exterior with its own life. Blue in all versions, yellow or pink are some of the colors of summer 2018, as well as greens, such as Greenery, the Pantone color of the year.
The new collections of the companies are betting on a vivid color palette, with lime green, pink or orange. Mention aside it deserves the rose, which we like so much in El Mueble, which also makes a hole in balconies and terraces in romantic and bright style.
THE TEXTURES: BACK TO THE ROOTS
Natural, organic fibers, jacquards and embroidery make up the universe in the fabrics of this summer. All to favor a pleasant touch and a timeless appearance. The artisanal elaboration of some pieces is the icing on the cake tasty for all the senses.
And if the iron is not your thing, we have good news. Fabrics with a wrinkled stitch are topical. That “wrinkle is beautiful” is applied on tablecloths and summer plaids, without shame, transmitting wealth and volume to the more relaxed atmospheres.
THE STAMPED PROTAGONISTS
The prints continue to climb in the protagonism that they had already begun to take in the last seasons, next to smooth enriched with different textures. In prints, batik is one of those that stand out for their ethnic inspiration, while in woven designs you can see all kinds of textures made with natural fibers, which give a lot of personality to the fabric. Both in print and in fabric, the designs most demanded are geometric drawings, spikes, zigzag and many ethnic and floral motifs.
