Living bliss

A comfortable home makes you happy

Interior design trends

Interior design is increasingly focused on comfortable home-style living. Now it is no longer a matter of how hip or impressive your home looks, but what feels comfortable and right for you as an individual. A good example of this trend is the changing role of sofa cushions. In the past, they were always symmetrically arranged and there would have been exactly one cushion per seat. Today, the mountains of cushions and blankets found on sofas are not only an expression of personal preference, but have become a standard design feature.

Accessories & colours

Oak continues to be the wood of the season – stained in a number of different colours – planed smooth or with a special finish. When it comes to colours, plain teals, yellows, reds and purples are currently very ‘in’ for furnishings, and Pantone’s earthy wine red “Marsala” has now topped the chart as the trendiest colour of 2015. This red will completely change the ambience of any interior – and interiors are set to be designed for a warmer and comfier feel. Trend experts are furthermore predicting that copper orange is going to play an important role, particularly so in interior design. But calmer and more natural colours such as grey and warm earth tones also continue to be a must.

Bed trends

Comfort, luxury and a good night’s sleep – divan beds have many positive associations. They are currently all the rage on the German furniture market. One of their main characteristics is the high level of comfort they provide and the fact that their mattress bases are at a higher level. Added to which comes the fact that their padded headboard also makes them look very cosy. Here at Stiegelmeyer, we firmly believe that this trend is also going to make its way into care facilities in the future. At the “Altenpflege 2015”, Stiegelmeyer will be launching its new “Venta” care bed, which will add an element of cosiness to any room.
