  • Bauhaus Principles: Functionality, Simplicity, and Style

    Bauhaus has always favored simplicity in style, capturing the effortlessly stylish quality of functional furnishings. Find couches, chairs, and other furniture in single tone colors, often black; metal construction, especially steel; and simple finishes, including any wood furnishings. This down to Earth approach drives the heart of Bauhaus and continues to be attractive in the 21st century.

  • Bauhaus style is informed by the idea of a unified work, where all the design elements, from furnishings to architecture, are united an expression of modernity. Centralized spaces with clearly defined functions were the basis for the style. Auxiliary and compartmentalized structures produced a flow related to the main space. This practice is essential to adapting Bauhaus to a contemporary setting. Create interactivity among your spaces with functional furnishings that define the space and purpose of each room.
