The effect of white

The color white makes small rooms appear larger, because the contours are no longer so clearly perceived by the eye. White looks clear and pure, however, when designing the living space, you should also set other color accents, otherwise the room can appear sterile and this is not very cozy. The color is very popular for furniture, as it can be combined with all other colors and is timeless. It gives furniture a neat and clean look. White looks friendly and inviting and is suitable for all rooms. Pure white furniture is best for a bright and radiant ambience.

Not all white is the same

White comes in many different designs and variations. Different materials make these tones look different. You can distinguish many different types of white. If you compare different color gradations, you will notice that some have a slight yellow tint, some appear more radiant and luminous than others, and others have a gray tinge. Cream white appears warmer and cozier than pure white because of the yellowish tinge. White with a gray tinge, does not appear as bright and is therefore more inconspicuous.

There are various white materials to choose from in our diverse online store. For example, our Finnish birch veneer laminated wood is available with an opaque or transparent melamine resin coating. In the variant with the transparent coating, you can still see the grain of the wood well and is therefore perfect for all nature lovers. An inexpensive alternative is our edged chipboard in white. Our medium density fiberboard (MDF) is available in pure white with a natural edge, but also solid black. The contrast with the black edge makes your unique piece of furniture a contemporary eye-catcher and provides a modern flair. Find the material that suits you the most and fits your home best.

Combination with other colors

White can be perfectly combined with light pastel tones. This combination is inviting and brings freshness into your home. But also with dark colors you can combine white very well, thereby the bright furniture is excellently emphasized. A white wall combined with a gray or anthracite-colored living room landscape or with a black sideboard looks modern and stylish. If you want exclusively white furniture, then you can set individual colored accents, so as not to make the room look too sterile and make it more cozy. For example, a colorful bouquet of flowers is very suitable for this, but also appealing paintings or extravagant sculptures. In children's rooms, white shelves with colorful doors will bring order and at the same time will be a child-friendly furniture in any playroom.

White with wood

White and wood- is a perfect duo. The warm and characteristic grain of the wood makes the ambience look more cozy and comfortable. Oak is particularly popular, but beech also comes out perfectly in combination with white. In general, you should make sure that the design of the living room does not look too monotonous and cool. A table with a tabletop made of classic oak with a light table frame gets a modern look through the interaction of the different materials.

Scandinavian style

Typical for the scandinavian style are friendly colors, many light sources, natural materials and clear forms. Discreet furniture in white is very popular and therefore often combined with other furniture made of wood. Straightforward and simple design is the be-all and end-all for this style, playful details are very rarely found. Bright open spaces with straight furniture in white are standard for scandinavian style. Contrasts are set with pure colors, these are classically a warm red or a strong royal blue. Cushions or tablecloths with graphic patterns in bold colors serve as decorative elements. However, these are used only very reduced, because the style is oriented entirely on the principle of simplicity. The motto less is more is writ large. Individual color accents can also be created in pastel tones. To round off the scandinavian style, lambskins or cozy plaids are draped on the sofa.

Country house look furniture

A house decorated in the country style definitely includes white light furniture. These are often with elaborate details, such as detailed floral decorations.

In general, natural colors as well as muted tones are predominant here. In Shabby Chic, traces of use are desired on furniture. Natural colors and simple patterns provide the nostalgic charm of the country style. In the decorative elements, traditional patterns such as checks or floral patterns are picked up.

Industrial look

Rough rugged materials, metal elements and untreated wood bring the charm of a factory into your home. Shelves with clear forms made of metal emphasize the style. A chest with an eye-catching pattern in rust red and mustard yellow follow the same pattern. A dining table with clear signs of use is joined by white chairs and a large dark gray ceiling lamp. The design here is clean and oriented to straight unobtrusive forms. For the authentic look, concrete is chosen as the flooring. Predominant colors are gray, natural tones and dark colors.

Mediterranean flair

Characteristic of the Mediterranean style of interior are terracotta-colored walls, striking wooden beams, high-quality leather furniture combined with light furniture. For example, a large oval wooden table in white is combined with matching leather chairs. In a living room painted with earthy natural tones, a bright sofa set with a coffee table with eye-catching floral flourishes can be found. To complete the style, large houseplants and opulent vases and bowls are showcased. Precious marble floors added a certain elegance to the room. Elaborate paintings in bold warm colors are part of the wall design. Typical for the Mediterranean style are royal blue mosaics, as well as the wood species pine or olive. The decorative elements are made of natural materials such as wood or stone.

Maritime interior style

Maritime style is inspired by seafaring and that's why the main colors there are white, red and blue. Furniture made of untreated wood looks very authentic. In this style, light furniture is combined with decorations made of natural materials. Other design elements include nets, driftwood, sand, shells and stones. For a personal touch, shared vacation photos are particularly suitable.

Purist white

Minimalist furniture in white with a clear design provides order and tranquility in your home. Linear design elements, generous window fronts and light furniture give living rooms a modern and airy ambience. Furniture with doors and drawers keep things tidy and support the style. For a natural look, plants and coordinated decorative elements are perfect. Here, less is more: therefore, decoration is used sparingly. The main focus is on the functionality of the furniture, which is part of design. Therefore, furniture that is adapted to the particular living situation is excellent, but also furniture that can be used in many ways is very popular here. For example, a small dining table in the kitchen can be used for breakfast and at the same time serves as an additional work surface in a small kitchen.
