The event for furnishing fabrics and curtains
From 3 to 5 May, over 115 exhibitors descended upon Villa Erba in Cernobbio to take part in the 25th edition of Proposte 2017 – the event which brings together the leading companies in mid to high-end furnishing fabrics and curtains. Canepa presented a new collection designed for open air furnishing, remaining faithful to the company’s key principles. As well as the interior selection, the collection featured a range of items in acrylic and propylene, reminiscent of some of the traditional classics such as ikat and chevron fabrics. The fair provided an overview of the current situation in the furnishing fabrics sector: there is a growing market in the nautical and hotel sectors, and a burgeoning trend for upgrading in the residential market. This positive development was confirmed by the last Salone del Mobile with stakeholders increasing their focus on sustainability which looks set to become a key business driver for players in the market.
