Hey friends! Let me just tell you that I am typing these words on my sofa, window wide open, fan placed directly in front of me in full speed and I am sighing – after an entire month of rain (at least it felt like that) we are now in the midst of a heat wave with temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius and above (that is like 95 degrees Fahrenheit). Hence, my rooftop apartment has turned into a boiling terrarium and my succulents and cacti seem to feel very much at home. Unlike my body. Luckily, I was in the happy position to follow a few press invitations over the last few days and evicted my home for some interior design fun.
Last week I was invited by the design furniture online shop ‘Fashion for Home’ to attend the press opening party of their Munich showroom. Some of you know that I myself have a beautiful coffee table from ‘Fashion for Home’ in my home and love it dearly – I blogged about it HERE. So I was pretty happy to avoid my terrarium and roam a fresh and new showroom instead (with chilled drinks in my hand).
The opening party with 150 guests was kicked-off with a speech by the two young founders Marc Appelhoff and Christoph Cordes and the deputy chief editor of the German Elle Decoration. After the official speech I used the opportunity to chat with the founders and I was super surprised to learn that they founded the company a mere three years ago and the idea was born in what I would refer to ‘happy home’ – it was their shared apartment where they realized that the market needs an online shop offering design furniture ‘on demand’. The German company runs now online stores in the UK, the Netherlands, Austria and the USA, too. What a great success for two young guys (sort of my age!!).
The event itself was very easy-going and relaxed, lots of chitchatting, meeting other blogger friends like Anette of ‘Look! Pimp Your Room’ and fresh drinks. Since I was juggling too many things, I hardly snapped any pics. Moreover, the lighting was more than uncharming to my camera so sorry for the poor photo quality. Oh, and I’ve put together some of my favorite pieces from their shop. A fine retro vibe, don’t you agree (yes, the yellow chair was inevitable LOL)? Happy Thursday!
