Unique Furniture – Made in Germany

Beautiful handmade details.

Solid wood furniture ensures a good indoor climate.

The German furniture label Möbelwerke A. Decker is already over 100 years old. What started as a modest basketry has turned into a firmly established expert for sophisticated solid wood furniture. Today, it’s led by Andreas Decker – the third generation to run it. “Tradition comes with obligation. Experience requires history,” Decker says. “Though by no means are we romanticising or idealising the past. Quite the opposite, we transfer the commitment, experience and knowledge from previous generations to the now and hence create processes, behaviours and products which are fit for the future.” 10 |

The family-friendly company sees wood as the most ‘honest’ material because nature’s power and beauty rests in it. Lavish designs are not on the agenda here. Instead, you will find contemporary furniture that is durable and brings out the material’s unpretentious beauty with a focus on skilfully crafted details. This perfect symbiosis promotes a sense of well-being and security. “For our customers, being at home means to live with honest values and to feel at ease,” Decker adds. At the heart of the state-of-the-art climate-neutral production is the protection of the climate and the environment. All woods

come from certified sustainable forestry and sustainability is transparently incorporated into the entire supply chain. Decker’s eco-design has no expiry date – it fulfils the cradle-to-cradle concept also thanks to the longevity of the innovative toxin-free products with smart features. The new office furniture series ‘Homeoffice’, specifically designed for working from home, shows that Decker frees solid wood furniture from its heavy, Baroque design image. In a few simple steps, any space can be turned into a workstation – even if there isn’t really any space to begin with. The calming solid wood counterbalances the world of digital media and cold surfaces, which usually defines our workday. No matter if you are looking for a desk or a smart sleeping system: Decker products stand for sustainability, skilfully crafted details and an individual look throughout.
