Urban Nature
Urban Nature soothes the soul and invites you to walk barefoot as if you were on the beach, except that you're at home, walking on wool and cotton carpets in sandy tones with discreet ethnic patterns. The shape of the wicker armchair resembles that of a casual lounge chair from a club in Ibiza. Glass accessories and simple brass frames surrounding round mirrors create a modern, cool twist. Freshness is contributed by features such as a white lacquered table with a tulip foot. Last but not least, this trend shows an appreciation of the craftsmanship whose traces can be seen in many Urban Nature pieces. Light-colored wood looks best in its natural, only slightly smoothed state, and combines harmoniously with materials such as basket ware and rattan – preferably woven and braided. Not heavy, but airy, in light shades with a few touches of color Urban Nature by Kare design

Soft Glam
Soft Glam focuses on high-quality statement furniture that can survive more than a single season. The window sill and the sideboard become the stage for individual, often large-sized decorative objects with an artistic touch, such as hand-welded geometric objects on a marble plinth. Showy pieces are frowned upon – instead the shooting star in living rooms and dining rooms is soft glamour, casual and unobtrusive. Features such as brass-colored pedestals signal prestige and bring a warm glow into the home. The comeback of warm metal tones and velvet as a favorite material express the desire for sensuousness. Instead of elaborate chandeliers, interstellar-looking lamps with glass spheres in a satin finish float above the dining table on matt, brass-colored rods. Here you will find comfortably upholstered chairs with a cuddly soft cover in shades of dark blue and green that would be at home in a five-star restaurant. Soft Glam by Kare Design

Modern Pop
The backdrop to this collection might be a cube-style Sixties bungalow with its floor-to-ceiling windows and open living spaces. Here variants of the stylish furniture design of the 1960s to 1980s meet Pop Art splashes of color in an unconventional and sophisticated mix. Shelves become gallery spaces and a collection of decorative objects tells the life of a cosmopolitan with a soft spot for Andy Warhol and the Memphis Group. Sideboards and console tables - often made of oak - are visually in harmony with their function and remain classically modern in their treasure trove of forms. Chairs, armchairs and sofas take on the role of star soloists, catch the eye as organically rounded upholstered landscapes in velvety orange or as straight-lined armchairs in violet, and promise a fascinating clash of styles with thickly stitched upholstery in luxurious leather. Large-format photographs in black and white and graceful, constructivist side tables in black lacquered steel complement the look with graphic contrasts.

Retro Elegance
Art or practical cabinet furniture? The fronts of the straight-lined sideboard 'Oxy' look like an abstract painting in oxidized metal colors. This handcrafted furniture is a key piece in the stylish furnishing world of Retro Elegance, where the best Mid-century design feels at home and which makes a surprising connection with the wealth of Art Deco forms. Furniture, lamps and accessories make you think of art-loving people who turn their home into a modern salon where they can philosophize with friends about art events and new jazz. Elegant, neutral tones from grey to brown, leather, velvet, dark wood and transparent features in glass combine with armchairs, console tables with a grey stone top and solid wooden furniture.
