Dinner is served
Whenever and wherever possible, the communicative living room opens into the kitchen. This trend is supported by designing the interior and furnishing in styles, materials and colours that harmonize with each other.
To this end, the available materials are wood (solid and veneer), glass, lacquer, stone (especially marble or slate in this instance), metal, ceramic and concrete. Naturally, realistic decors in matching colours and textures are available along with their counterparts in real materials. As well as oak, whether rustic, plain, light or dark, we also offer larch, walnut, pine and elm, all of which are easy to combine with plain colours or the second main focus of the current looks in concrete and marble decor. There is a trend towards matt surfaces, including an ultra-matt nanotech material that is extremely tough, wear and scratch-resistant. The feel of the surfaces is extremely important, whether wood grain or the unevenness of e.g. slate, the coolness of glass or metal, or the softness of matt lacquer. A material mix creates a lively, homely effect, such as wood with e.g. stone, plain lacquered surfaces or glass and the various effects.
Metal is seen as a delicate, brushed aluminium front with polished edges that emphasise the contrast between matt and gloss, or as a coated surface in brushed stainless steel effect that offers an extremely matt Soft Touch surface thanks to the electron-beam hardening of acrylic resins. In addition to light aluminium, there is also the choice of bronze, copper, brass, pewter, gold and platinum-coloured highlights. Surface textures for metals range from smooth and brushed to textile effects.
With regard to plain colours, white, black and grey in every variation are as popular as ever. A new soft grey-beige tone matches all the current grey and black tones, stone decors and wood finishes. It correlates to the development to warm shades for woods as well. This also applies to grey, which is extremely popular in numerous shades.
