PRESS RELEASE – November 2019
Chinese flooring industry turns towards design carpets
Shanghai. DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR has seen a great success with the signature pavilions over its 21 year history. The upcoming edition will continue providing the international audience with visitor-favorite events and will bring new unforgettable experience.
Treasures of the Orient
Oriental carpets have an outstanding quality and a good reputation. Their origin and history always intrigued the Chinese consumers. Previously, they were mostly used in the hospitality and public sectors, but with a growing Chinese interest in interior design, the consumption pattern has changed: carpet market in China is increasing. Chinese consumers are looking for exclusive designs and fabrics. Handmade carpets from India, Afghanistan and Nepal are more and more required by Chinese consumers. To introduce the oriental carpets to the B2C world, DOMOTEX asia /CHINAFLOOR creates the “Treasures of the Orient” - an exclusive area with 650 sqm space in the heart of Hall-W3. The area will have a distinctive design and welcome exhibitors from India, Afghanistan, and Nepal.
Chinese Original Carpet Design Show
With China accounting for one-third of global luxury consumption, Chinese consumers want more premiumisation. It's a trend that extends right across the Chinese consumer sector, including interior design and home decoration. Chinese companies are making the shift from "made in China" to "designed and created in China" as consumers are increasingly more confident with the domestic brands. That is why DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR supports Chinese carpet design and houses the second edition of Chinese Original Carpet Design Show, promoting the works of young Chinese carpet designers. The top 30 carpets will be displayed onsite as a part of a unique installation. Jury selected among prominent and leading figures in design industry; press members, design professionals and associations will choose top-10 works and award the young talents onsite the show.

The DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR team and COVER Magazine are thrilled to announce the fourth edition of the curated Luxury Brands exhibition. VIPs and invited guests can visit the signature marquee in Hall-W5, presenting renowned carpet design firms who indulge visitors with a variety of extravagant products. Each company introduces two of their finest hand-made rugs with the goal of attracting buyers as well as industry professionals interested in collaborating on future design projects.
