These offer a tactile insert with rich textural organic atmosphere for a luxurious space by incorporating velvet upholstery, curtains, jute furniture, plywood, and wicker and jute furniture in earth tones.

In 2021 upholstered furniture in soft velvet with subtle elements of gold, brass legged tables and brass fitting in bathrooms and kitchens will be seen.

Bedrooms are designed focusing on simplicity. Designed now for relaxation, sleep and working. Tall windows are a must as attention is paid to natural light. The space is divided into conditional small zones in which a sleeping place, dressing table, armchair and other furnishings are located, while preserving the open nature of the interior.
