Today this style is very close to minimalism. It is also ascetic and pragmatic. Moreover, it is characterized by clear forms and lines; high quality, durable materials; thoughtful arrangement of objects; modest, unobtrusive decor. Wood is the primary material in a home decorated in German style. Its main shades are milky, cream, olive and light coffee tones. The combination of light and dark is a favorite technique used in German style. The aesthetic of things is important, however when choosing furniture, the Germans, first of all, pay attention to durability and functionality. In a German house, everything should be extremely logical: a chair for comfortable sitting, a sofa for a good rest.
