I have written a few times about German design on Happy Interior Blog. I’ve been living in this country for eight years now yet my eye was mostly directed towards other countries and their respective design scenes. Germany has quite an interesting design scene and it’s largely a country of numerous small to medium sized furniture makers – such as KFF, a furniture maker from a small German town in the northwest of the country.

KFF has been producing furniture for more than 30 years. Germany is the biggest and most important market for KFF, but they also export their furniture to more than 30 countries worldwide – and yet it is a humble, quiet and successful company. Also another German characteristic I would say. So even though I am based in Germany myself, I did not know about KFF – until recently.

Now I can not only say I know KFF, but I can also say I have one of their latest furniture designs in my home too: the  quirky and cool side table named YCKS, designed by Detlef Fischer. This side table is both cool looking and practical – it comes in various finishings but I have opted for the bright version made of light maple wood. What I like in particular about this side table is its sassy shape: its three perky legs are crossed and create a sort of balancing counterpart to the oval tabletop and the connecting link is made of a black metal joint.

YCKS was inspired by the mid-century kidney-shaped tables of the 1950s and 1960s. It refers to the shape but interprets it in a very contemporary way thus making it a great addition to any modern home. I need not mention that it comes in handy for my growing plant collection, right? Happy weekend everybody!

    Oh Igor der Tisch ist so toll! Wir brauchen auch noch einen Beistelltisch, aber der hier ist ein wenig zu groß! Mal sehen was ich so finde! 🙂 Liebe Grüße, Kathrin

    Hi Igor. I hadn’t heard of them before either, it’s a lovely design and looks great in your home. One thing that is almost guaranteed with anything that comes out of Germany is the quality. Have a great week!

    Το μοβ φυτό (που ποτε δεν θυμαμαι το ονομά του) μου θυμιζει τοσο πολύ τα παιδικά μου χρονια σε κήπους εξοχικών σπιτιών κοντά στην Αθήνα!!!

    Love the simplicity of that table. Can you please tell me, what is the name of that interesting purple plant? I’ve never seen anything like that. Thanks!

      Sure Ali! It’s called Purple Heart or more precisely Tradescantia pallida.

    It’s an interesting side table. One thing that attracts me is it’s base legs, which is placed differently. Thinking of getting such interior piece placed besides my sofa just like in the image. Great work.
