Our photo of the month in July shows the 8 month old boxer Milo dozing peacefully in our dog bed Cloud, surrounded by a stylishly decorated ambience.
Classic, minimalistic, timeless: home accessories in grey never go out of fashion. Whether for furniture, decoration, dog accessories or entire rooms - grey always creates an ideal stage and, as a neutral base, makes colourful furnishings shine.
And suddenly everything is grey: furniture, fashion, mobile phones. The rehabilitation of a colour that once stood for boredom, bad weather and poor eyesight. In practice it proves the opposite and radiates elegance and cosiness. Thanks to its restrained nature, it is compatible with any other colour without exception and makes colourful things really shine.
But why does color rule living rooms and catwalks all over the world right now? How can it be that a colour group that was once considered dull and unimpressive suddenly dominates the trend reports?
First of all, the current trend is not a completely new phenomenon. As early as the late 1940s, Balmain, Balenciaga and Dior again showed shades of grey in their post-war collections, thus overcoming the association with grey Wehrmacht uniforms. Later, in the 1980s, Giorgio Armani preferred to design the interiors of his boutiques in grey, or more precisely his personal nuance "Greige", a mixture of grey and beige, a colour that is still very popular today.
As Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute explains: "Greys express our need for security and our desire to turn inward and protect ourselves from the hectic and chaotic world in which we live."
With this in mind, we have developed the concept for the Sleep Collection . Our aim was to create a timeless, elegant and gender-neutral collection at the highest possible quality level. We have therefore decided on a handmade production in Germany. Not only because this is the best quality, but also because we always have the aspect of climate in mind. A German production has stricter regulations and in addition, long transport routes are not necessary.
The Dog bed Cloud, on which Milo sleeps so beautifully has a high-quality outer fabric with a fine structure. It feels super soft and comfortable and thus offers a comfortable sleeping place for your four-legged friend. At the same time it is extremely robust against abrasion and is resistant to animal hair, which makes external cleaning very easy. Furthermore, sunlight cannot harm the colour fastness. Therefore the Cloud dog bed is not only ultra stylish but also ultra practical. Now all you need is a beautiful houseplant, framed pictures and the trendy living area is ready.
