The best online interior design shops in Germany
Over the course of the last year we have spent more and more time inside our own four walls, and with new interior trends providing inspiration, it's time to redecorate. While Berlin has many unique and contemporary interior design shops, online shopping is convenient for wherever you may live in Germany. So if you're ready to bring your interior vision to life, without further ado, we present our favourite online interior shops:
Westwing offers its newsletter subscribers daily information about the latest interior trends, furniture lines, and decorating tips - delivered straight to your inbox. In addition to its own decor and furniture collections, the Munich-based online interior design shop also offers interior decor lines from well-known labels such as Madame Stoltz or Broste Copenhagen, covering all tastes. However, while the newsletter offers are limited in time, the Westwing Now shop gives you permanent access to their versatile product range and helps you to give your home a new shine with velvet armchairs, tableware series, or textiles.
Online furniture store behemoth XXXLutz offers customers thousands of decor, textiles, furniture, and kitchen appliances. With so much to choose from, and at a large range of prices, you are sure to find something worthwhile. And the best part is their service: from sewing to fabric samples to installation, XXXLutz has you covered. They will even dispose of your old electronic devices such as fridges and washing machines for free. The Austrian-based brand also commits itself to sustainability by providing customers with designated ecolabels indicating organic materials and environmentally friendly products.
This is what a modern 360° design range looks like. MADE sees itself as a multifunctional platform which, in the form of the in-house talent factory, not only offers young designers a chance to achieve success with their unique designs, but also provides information on current interior trends or DIY ideas and, last but not least, sells furniture and decoration. But you won't find off-the-peg products at MADE. Here everything is refreshingly different, beautiful, and especially popular with interior trendsetters.
Maisons du Monde
French design export: The online interior shop Maisons du Monde not only meets the taste of the famously cultivated and refined French, but also enjoys great popularity around the world. Since 1996, it has been offering multi-faceted furniture and accessory collections, which can now also be admired and tested in a number of retail shops - one of which is located at Schlossstrasse 10-15 in Berlin. Whether lovers of country style, industrial chic, or mid-century minimalism, Maison du Monde has something for everyone.
If sustainability, considerate manufacturing processes and natural materials are important to you, you will love Urbanara. The bed linen, crockery or carpets of this online interior design shop, located in Berlin, are subject to the strictest quality controls and are manufactured in an environmentally friendly way, as well as mostly by hand. A desirable company ethos, which is clearly reflected in the lovingly compiled product range and should inspire other design companies to become more environmentally conscious.
Whether Vitra or Hay, established traditional company or aspiring young designer: Connox has them all. The online design shop founded in Hanover sells lighting, furniture, and accessories from well-known and up-and-coming designers and artisans, and surprises with an original A-Z of interior design that brings together background knowledge, furnishing tips, and product suggestions. Always wanted to know more about cereal bowls or poufs? Then you've come to the right place.
Not everyone may be aware that behind the famous Spanish fashion company Zara there is also a no-less-stylish sub-brand selling interior design collections. You won't find any solid sofas or beds here, but Zara Home inspires with feminine tableware, textiles, small furniture and decoration. Just as trendy as its clothing brand, here you will find the latest must-have styles for homes.
Now one of the largest online furniture stores in Europe, home24 was started more than ten years ago with the goal to make shopping for interiors more accessible. The German company offers contemporary furniture designed and manufactured by internationally renowned designers, established brands, local family businesses to provide customers with a broad selection of choices and prices. Home24 has both showrooms and outlet stores with bargain prices in cities all over Germany.
Nordic design par excellence: At Bolia, lovers of the Scandinavian design language get their money's worth. The fact that the Danish company's founders are particularly concerned about value and originality is expressed in the form of the Bolia Design Award, which has been awarded for over 13 years and honours exceptional creations and talent. The results of this respectful treatment of young creative minds and their pool of ideas? Minimalist lamps, vases, textiles or modular sofas, which can be combined according to individual needs, preferences for shapes and fabrics.
One particularly useful resource that does not come directly to mind for many people when they search for furniture and decoration online is eBay classified ads. Not only can you buy used items here, benefiting the environment, the highly-frequented online portal also offers real vintage treasures that nobody else really has. Check the site regularly and be quick so you don't miss out on a one-of-a-kind bargain.
