"First impressions count" - so they say, and let's be honest, that's how it is. This saying applies not only to people, but also to the entrance area at home and especially in companies. We have redesigned our reception area: Furniture and decoration where moved and added, with the aim of making our entrance more inviting. Our eye-catcher is and remains the orange couch, which is highlighted by bright tables and stylish accessories from our own range.

...and how quickly a small household mirror or a pocket mirror can set something on fire, we tested and recorded under supervision. A pocket mirror, a toilet paper roll and the sun, that's all it took to cause a fire in less than 15 minutes. Unattended or in a room, it could have quickly caused major damage. Even through a window, under certain circumstances a mirror can scorch the window frame or scorch the decorative wooden shell.
Therefore, always take care not to place the mirror directly against the window (whether open or closed) and always protect the mirror surface from direct sunlight.

What many people don't know... for many, many years we and nature have enjoyed the advantages of green roofing. At that time, plants were planted on the roof of one of our warehouses to provide natural protection against heat and cold. Visually, of course, it fits perfectly into the countryside, where we have our headquarter.
And if it weren't a bit cumbersome to climb up there, we would certainly enjoy the odd lunch break or two up there in peace and quiet.
