The fact that our furniture pieces are welcomed denizens in high-end hotels-from the traditional hotel to the lifestyle resort-speaks for their high-quality design and workmanship. They comfortably weather the strain and stress of frequent use thanks to their solid wood frames, robust upholstering and covers. And since they come with the option of convertibility and provide the full comfort of a bed, they quickly multiply the number of available beds. The design is fully subordinate to your own style, thus representing the individuality and image of your establishment.

To this end, we will gladly work with you to develop holistic design and space conceptssupported by planning know-how, a sensibility for form as well as an appreciation for economics. And not only do we bring our skills in upholstery to the table; we can also call on our partners in the manufacturer's association "die Collection" - and their expertise in everything from tables to cabinetry.

So not only will you find our furniture in Europe's top hotels, in high-end sanatoriums, clinics and retirement homes; you will even find it in exclusively furnished apartment and villa complexes in the United Arab Emirates. And indeed, we see that as a special distinction-quite literally, this is the birthplace of our "sofa". Is that not the epitome of comfort?

Untamed ocean winds, bumpy galloping highways. We've been up to this kind of challenge for over 250 years. Our forefather was already designing mobile, comfortable seating. Saddles for horse and rider. Upholstered furniture for cruise ships, yachts or caravans presents a particular challenge, both technically and functionally. Our quality craftsmanship easily weathers this much rougher strain and stress-even after a trip round the world. And our functional furniture is practically predestined for these usually limited spaces-for example as sofabeds with a linen chest and generous storage area.

We offer tailored solutions, of course-from single sofas or custommade upholstered suites to integrated fitted solutions. As single pieces or entire sets. Our planning team would gladly advise you. After all, space-saving multifunctionality is the underlying idea behind our convertible furniture. But there is one area in which we are by no means conservative-generous comfort, whether sitting, lying down or sleeping. And an ambience in which you feet at home. even when you're at the other end of the world.

about us.

Admittedly, we design beautiful furniture. At least that's what design juries and customers say worldwide. But we think furniture too. Rethink its function again and again. Upholstered furniture as an invitation to relax. A sofa as an invitation to sleep. An armchair as one to lie down. But how to accomplish this without making it unsightly?

How can comfortable seating, lying and sleeping be united in one compact solution? By succeeding at this again and again, often with surprising solutions, we have arguably become the leading manufacturer of high-end convertible upholstered furniture. No wonder that we are sought out as partners for furnishing exelusive hotels, ships and caravans, retirement homes, clinics and sanatoriums. As a competent advisor for planners and architects seeking individualised furniture and space solutions. Simply everywhere where multifunctional, convertible furniture is in demand. And where is it not in this world of constant flux?
