Dorothée Hackethal seized the initiative three years ago. The business director of an advertising agency in Cologne, she abandoned her fruitless hunt for attractive furnishings for her little daughter. A project that began with preliminary pencil sketches quickly evolved into a full-fledged passion. Together with a friend – the industrial designer André Wilps – she progressively perfected the sketches until the first collectiwon was ready: Series_01 with armchair, two-seater and daybed.
The brand was given the name “Living Jewels” because these pieces of furniture are indeed little gems for every child’s room. The brand is synonymous with the joy of design, life and play – and, of course, the joy of children. Children can sit, lie, jump and romp on this furniture, or simply cuddle and sleep on it. In addition to their puristic design, these pieces of furniture also uphold the highest standards of quality, ergonomics and safety. Living Jewels furnishings turn a playroom and bedroom into a living room for children.
Only the best materials in the highest qualities are selected and processed for the furniture. The design and the function are optimally combined to create safe, top-quality children’s furniture. Exclusive materials are used throughout, from the covering fabric to the framework. Furthermore, each piece is ecologically safe and absolutely free from toxic substances. Living Jewels furniture is “made in Germany.” The colours and the clear shapes stimulate children’s imagination and creativity.
