With only a little money and by replacing a few pieces of furniture, lamps or accessories, you can get a great new appearance and change the entire look of the place. Through a healthy mixture of well-established and innovative elements that are either restrained or obviously extravagant in their appearance, you can achieve not only a completely new comfortable atmosphere at home but also a wow-effect for your guests.
Italian designer sofa: Uncle Jack from Kartell
The Italian Uncle Jack designer sofa from the Italian furniture manufacturer, Kartell, is not only a real looker, but is a genuine piece of art. It is the result of a special injection moulding process that has been further developed for furnishings. Through this unique technology, it is possible to make a piece of furniture out of a single 30 kg block of polycarbonate. This piece of furniture that is created out of a, so-to-say, single moulding step has no joints or transitions that can be discerned. The design for the designer sofa that has a transparent and soft surface was created by the French designer, Philippe Starck. Due to the plastic raw material used for its manufacture, the designer sofa is extremely light but is still very strong and is therefore suitable for outside use, too. Its lines flow into each other and the well-proportioned design gives a striking but classy feel to your living room. With a width of 1.90 m, the crystalline Uncle Jack designer sofa has a lot of seating space. Philippe Starck has completed the family by supplementing the Uncle Jack sofa with an armchair called Uncle Jim, which he has also designed. The two together meet every requirement for a unified, aesthetic appearance. A really great twosome!

How about a new interpretation of the age-old chandelier? The Mesh lamp provides you just this look and gives your room and the atmosphere in it, a feel of the dramatic.

These LEDs can be switched on or off alternately. If you so desire, you can switch on only the upper, the lower or the LEDs that are arranged in the shape of rings along the sides. This amount of flexibility in operation gives you spectacular and a variety of results in the lighting, which is only possible because of the innovative LED technology. A real classic in a modern style.

TULIP – Fire and flames for outside your house
A fireplace that gives light and heat is not only particularly delightful in winter, but also in warm summer evenings when it creates a pleasant mood in your own garden at home. The TULIP fire ring designed by Andreas Reichlin provides light for a cosy atmosphere, provides warmth in colder evenings outside and can also be used as a barbecue at the same time. Its outer shell is made of untreated steel and it has an inner ring with which all kinds of delicacies can be gently barbecued in flames at temperatures of 150 degrees (up to a maximum of 300 degrees). Due to a special welding process, the ring is seamlessly joined to the shell and this design provides for an even distribution of heat. The TULIP fire ring can be considered a new interpretation of the archaic fireplace. These fireplaces were a common meeting point in many cultures and they spread a comradely atmosphere around them. As time passes, the appearance of the surface of the TULIP fire ring changes naturally due to the effect of weathering. This only serves to emphasize its archaic origins. Get the TULIP fire ring for long summer evenings and barbecue parties with your friends and acquaintances, in your garden.
