Sustainable decorating

In addition to the design and type of decoration, the materials play a role. Wood, glass, porcelain and stainless steel are in tune with each other.

Depending on the mood, the eco fragrance dispensers can be placed in the desired location in the apartment and on the balcony. Organic aromatic oils also ensure that natural scents are dispensed in the room air without emitting pollutants.
