It’s Waynette Goodson with your end-of-day wrap video sponsored by Boyteks. I’m going to kick it off today by talking about BekaertDeslee and the beautiful presentation they’re making now with their Casa collection, which is inspired by the latest interior design trends. They have this beautiful, nuanced Casa collection with these bold purples. And that’s about empowering women and women’s inclusiveness in design.

And they have this gorgeous, classic collection: luxury stretch woven black fabric with beautiful pots of Lorac gold thread—just super luxury. Speaking of Boyteks, Boyteks has brought its bio-green concept to market, and that is, of course, all-natural on the sustainability trends part. I have a cheat sheet. They developed their bio-green mattress ticking using all bio-based raw materials.

Waynette Goodson
It’s a very innovative concept involving natural products with herbal ingredients. So, Kathryn, what do you have? What’s next?

Kathryn Greene
Well, speaking on the kind of a bit natural side, I went to Enkev, and they have a polyurethane foam alternative that actually uses less CO2 in the production process and can be swapped out totally for that material in mattresses. So, I thought that was pretty cool. It’s fully recyclable, and it’s a totally circular product.

Kathryn Greene
And I know that circular design is a hot topic these days, so that was cool to see. Speaking of foam, I stopped by Carpenter, and they are also big on circularity right now. So they have figured out a way to make the same foam product with fewer materials so that it has less density, which reduces the number of trucks on the road and, so is to say, sustainable products all around.

Waynette Goodson
I think the keyword of the day might be sustainability. So Beth, what do you have?

Beth English
I was going to say we did not plan this, but I was going to say I saw several adhesives guys today. Saba, Worthen, and Jowat are all offering bio-based glues. Some of them have attributed this to some ideas they got at the sustainability conference, which is very exciting. I also stopped in and saw Nestor Springs.

Beth English
They exclusively make pocketed coils, and their newest product is a ten-inch pocketed coil. They’re calling it the Everest, and they have a prototype. Speaking of natural, it is made with cotton and hand-sewn. Yes, handmade.
