Embracing its rich history, Koleksiyon envisions its future on the basis of the history and geography to which it belongs.

Art and craft constitute the field of design, and therein lays the essence and value of design.
All of the interior elements that go to make up our homes should work in harmony. The furniture, curtains, lighting, beds and bedding, each should help to create a living space that is inviting, calming, attractive and comfortable. We should all be able to enjoy durable, high quality materials in well matched colours. While the things with which we surround ourselves should provide us with a harmonious, even poetic home, we should also be free to express ourselves with spontaneity and imagination. Our homes should reflect our individual style and the story of our lives. Our homes should reflect our tastes and interests, whether that is for music, wine, books or art. These are the things from which the story of our life is woven and these are the ideals that Koleksiyon Home represents.

The design of display and exhibiting has gained a new edge for Koleksiyon, as a direct medium to develop a communication between the visitors and the spirit of the brand. The main theme is to present stages of the creative process that leads to the
realization of Koleksiyon products.
The process of exhibiting, viewing, displaying at a contemporary level of perception are the core values of the theme, rather than a stylistic enthusiasm to fit into the fashionable “ism”s. The Projection of the details, dimensions and technical information on the solid or glazed walls are only the part of the thematic texture
Another central idea to the development of new showrooms is to experiment on ways of display, trying to recreate the relation between the object and the place, in each new display territory. In this regard each new shop is a new adventure, connected to the existing stores only in the main theme of the brand spirit. Rather than repeating the existing formulas in each new shop, the idea is to propose new ways of perception in every realized project. The final agenda is to edit a neutral design language, where every individual can feel inspired to create a place of their own.
Koleksiyon today has 3 different stores in İstanbul Büyükdere set up within a 15 thousand meter square area where home and office products are displayed. There are also 12 points of sale in 7 cities in Turkey.
