Being significant for the new GMK x OTTO Home & Living F/W 2020/21 collection “Cosy Structure” are sophisticated pieces of furniture that are perfectly suitable for both modern but also classy furnishings. The whole collection comprises a bunch of highly desirable pieces, some of our personal favourites are stylish sofas that are often paired with coffee tables. Due to their restrained colour choice (dove grey, cream white, beige and anthracite are preferably applied) they are the perfect choice for every style. Additionally, rust-colored and green nuances build incredibly interesting highlights. The subtle use of golden hues reminds us of bygone days.
A key piece of this line is a modular sofa titled “Marble“. Sustainability plays a major role in this collection and thus, this product was awarded with the “GOODproduct” sustainability seal by OTTO. The wood of this item comes from environmentally friendly forestry and got FSC certificated with the “Forest Stewardship Council“. That guarantees the strict compliance of social, ecological and economical standards. Furthermore it advocates for the protection of precious forest lands and against overexploitation of our nature. Therefore this compelling collection perfectly combines a stylish interior line with a good cause.
Another must-have item of this range is an endlessly elegant, night black closet with a golden substructure. In addition to this, you find a console and sideboard in the same style. Due to its nostalgic flair, this combination literally let our hearts beat some seconds faster.
However what must not be missing in this collection are home textiles and bed linen. The living accessories convince us due to a wide range of fabric- and pattern inspirations: teddy fabric, corduroy and houndstooth are repeatedly applied. The first mentioned have already been successfully presented during IMM Cologne. For the German stardesigner, the wide range of fabrics and pattern is the centerpiece of the collection. As he stated, like in fashion, the feelgood factor plays a central role for his interior designs. Due to their comfortable, soft processing you can spend many relaxed hours on these charming creations. Moreover he mentioned you can perfectly combine the colours of this line among each other.
Charming design objects, such as a nostalgic plant basket, serving trolley and several other items, such as golden decoration thistles, wand plates and pineapples round off this line. For those of you who are looking for a gift, this collection certainly has a plenty of interesting suggestions to offer.
Along with a classy-modern note, clear lines and precious details, Guido Maria Kretschmer is creating a stylish living ambiance. Both the optic and the feelgood factor play a major role.
