How to start a capsule interior

“But shouldn’t we choose furniture that will increase in value over time?” asked Maks (you don’t know Maks yet) the other day.

And he got us thinking.

The reality is: we can’t really commit to one “style” and we want to be able to redo our entire home when we get bored with it, without breaking the bank.

That’s just the way things work these days. Or at least they used to work.

Are you familiar with the term “capsule wardrobe”? Even though it tends to get pretty extreme, it’s actually a pretty cool concept.

The same logic could be applied to furniture and small decorative pieces. Instead of dozens of temporary designs, how about we start to work on, basically, a capsule interior?

A capsule interior which would consist of a certain number of perfectly matching pieces, made of high-quality materials, with timeless design and flawless craftsmanship.

Take a few moments to check out a few of our latest favourite ‘small’ furniture/product makers. Their products might easily convince you to start considering this idea. Because the fact is: we should choose furniture that will increase in value over time.

In the modern era, the interior of your home is a part of your personality and your style statement. It reflects your mood and your choices. The most integral part of the furniture is its quality, and life and durability of the furniture depend upon the quality of the materials used. Custom handmade furniture is always prepared with great care in terms of good quality components. Handmade furniture looks artistic and speaks for itself.

The idea of creating furniture that is not necessary for every household wasn’t so popular, but our goal is not to create something that everybody just needs, we want to create something that somebody wants so that every one of our pieces can find a perfect home.

They represent a collection of design objects for your home and office. Their products are inspired by universal symbols that extend through all aspects of life, from nature, art, spirituality or geometry, e.g. concentric circles, pyramids, the golden ratio and duality, and as such are integrated into everyday objects to bring timeless beauty into our surrounding.

By combining function and symbolism, we create new shapes, minimal and characteristic. Our goal is to create timeless products that transcend trends. The energy of a space and the objects within it affect us. We believe there are those who support us in creating harmony and expressing ourselves on a deeper level.
