Which furniture suits me?
The individual living style vividly reflects the personal life situation, the way of life and the special preferences. The furnishing of one's own four walls thus says a lot about the personality of the inhabitant.
When designing living spaces, one should give oneself enough time. It is important to first find out which furnishing style suits you best.
Do you particularly like Scandinavian design or do you prefer industrial furniture? Perhaps the vintage style is also right for you.
Take the following principle to heart when making your decision: there is no right and no wrong furnishing. Above all, stay authentic when choosing your living room furniture and accessories. Furnish your living room or bedroom the way you really like it best. Only if you feel at home in your ambience will you feel comfortable there.
The choice of furniture is very large
No matter which style of living you ultimately decide on - the decisive factor for whether a flat looks cosy and comfortable is the harmonious personal touch you give your home.

Nordic furniture: simple design with a feel-good guarantee
The Scandinavian furnishing style has enjoyed great popularity for many years. A characteristic feature of the Nordic style of living is its simple, unadorned design. Not only the Danes like it "hyggelig", which means "cosy". You too can bring a bit of cosiness and Nordic joie de vivre into your own four walls.
A lot of wood and other natural materials play an important role in Nordic-style furnishings. Preference is given to furnishings made of light woods, mostly native to Scandinavia.
The often natural look and the lively grain of the wood make up the special charm of Scandinavian furniture. In combination with the very popular colour white, the interior looks fresh and light.
Everyone immediately feels at home in a living room furnished in Scandinavian style. The light wood radiates warmth and cosiness. Furniture covers and home textiles made of cosy natural materials and cuddly furs also contribute to an extremely homely living atmosphere.
Of course, beautiful candles are a must among the home accessories. Hygge without candlelight is impossible!
Urban Furniture: Trendy Design with a Slightly Tart Charm
Industrial furniture is typical of the urban style. Rough but still cosy - that's how you could describe this trendy living style in simple words.
Straight lines and a minimalist design are a characteristic feature of the industrial look. Objects made of cool-looking glass, metal and concrete as well as rather warm-looking wood and leather - preferably in a contrasting mix of materials - create a cool loft atmosphere. Dark colours such as brown, black or anthracite underline the austere charm of this furnishing style.
Industrial furniture should not look perfect. Rather, it should look like furnishings from turn-of-the-century factory floors. Scraped-off layers of paint, rust or visible welding seams are the "trademark" of the Industrial Look.
Home accessories such as old scales, rusty gears or weathered tin cans complete the factory hall look. The furnishing style, which appears very cool at first glance, is in fact an expression of a modern and individual way of life.
Solid wood furniture is not just for nature lovers
Wood has always been a popular material for all kinds of furnishings. Solid wood furniture is a particularly good choice.
Furniture made of solid wood is unique. Differences in the colour and structure of the surfaces, knots or other irregularities add to the special charm of solid wood furniture.
However, anyone choosing solid wood furniture should be aware that wood, as a natural material, lives and works. Fluctuating room temperatures should be avoided or compensated for as far as possible in order to minimise undesirable reactions - such as expansion or shrinkage of the wood.
On the other hand, the fact that solid wood is alive is a great advantage. Solid wood furniture stores moisture and also releases it again. In this way, they have a positive influence on the indoor climate.
In addition, the solidly built furnishings are an acquisition for life. Future generations will also be able to enjoy it.
Vintage furniture: old and yet fashionable
Vintage means old or old-fashioned. Genuine vintage furniture is a rarity that is usually available at horrendous prices, especially at flea markets.
Vintage furniture is often also called Shabby Chic furniture. Traces of use, scratches and scuffs - the so-called used look - are typical of the Shabby Chic look.
Real antiques are unfortunately very hard to come by. That's why nowadays furniture in the Shabby Chic look is manufactured industrially. New furniture is thus trimmed to look old.
Accessories such as tarnished silver cutlery, worn brass candlesticks, filigree porcelain with a floral design or tablecloths with nature motifs go well with furniture in the Shabby Chic look. The shabby-chic look exudes a touch of romance paired with nostalgic flair.
Outdoor furniture: the second living room in the countryside
In spring and summer, life prefers to take place outdoors. Balconies, terraces and gardens are then in full swing.
To ensure that you enjoy your outdoor furniture for a long time, it should be made of weatherproof, robust and easy-care material. Garden furniture made of teak or rattan has proven to be particularly hard-wearing. However, metal and plastic are also ideally suited as materials for garden furniture.
