Interior design and urban living
Diversity is a lifestyle choice and the main attraction of modern big cities. Diversity in the sense of accommodation options, career opportunities and the ability to enjoy a great variety of cultural and entertainment offers. This exciting mix becomes apparent in the way how people shape their living spaces.

Come and have a look for yourself!
Urban Aachen – warm and authentic
What does an urban Aachen interior design look like? Our team has found a creative answer to that question. The interior features a clear, no-frills styling idiom for authenticity. Anyone, who has ever strolled along the streets of Aachen knows about the genuine warmth and kindness of Aachen natives. This warmth translates into a warm colour scheme with a characteristically warm living ambiance. The exciting interplay of authentic tradition and modernity is repeated in the selection of the rug. Classic patterns combine into geometric shapes created with traditional hand-made craftsmanship.
Paris chic – elegant and opulent
Paris is the style icon of the world for many. A capital of culture, fashion and the typical French joie de vivre. Inspired by the fascinating urbanity of that metropolis, we have created our own interior vision to reflect Parisian flair. Stylish yet warm, with an emotional use of golden yellow hues, the interior concept reveals Parisian exuberance for life at first glance. You can picture yourself on a Sunday afternoon full of indulgence on the chaise longue. We see life in the French capital as a mix of comfort and elegance.
Young Stockholm – purist and fresh
Scandinavian furniture design speaks its own, modern language. That is why our take on an urban interior theme in Stockholm has a nimble and fresh appeal. The chairs and couch share a lightweight appearance. The purist look of the interior is interspersed with the warmth of various woods. Earthy, muted colour accents underline the Nordic style with cool understatements – reduced to essentials, yet luxurious.
