Products we love: Handmade Limoges Porcelain

Products we love: Handmade Limoges Porcelain 2252 1481 Julia Ochsenreither

We are excited to announce the arrival of new handmade Limoges Porcelain.

The unique scents of the candles are produced by a master perfumer in the south of France and the wax is plant oil based. The porcelain housing can be reused once the candle has burnt out. The designs are simple, elegant and timeless and are heavily influenced by French heritage. Each piece has a unique story behind the design. Take the Tuilerries for example (First image below), which clearly hints at Paris` intricate wrought iron balconies that the city is known for. Tumblers are another popular item. They can serve as a: Teacup, coffee cup, plant holder, or pencil holder.

Behind the Scenes: Neptune Furniture Production

Behind the Scenes: Neptune Furniture Production 4032 3024 Julia Ochsenreither

Our team visited Neptune’s headquarters in Swindon, England and we were all thoroughly impressed. We had the opportunity to visit the Neptune furniture production, office, storage, and showroom spaces. The headquarter is beautifully designed and creates an atmosphere that you don’t want to leave, it truly feels like home.

On the first day, one of the things we learned about was the types of wood that are used as well as joinery techniques for the Neptune furniture production. Afterwards we took a tour of the big showroom space, where we were able to identify what elements made each kitchen collection unique, and what production methods were used.

After the wood has been delivered, most of which comes from North America, the magic begins in the large carpenters workshop next to the headquarters. The furniture pieces are tested, customized and perfected here. There are experts in every field, which makes the overall atmosphere of the space very inspiring.

The Suffolk Kitchen by Neptune

The Suffolk Kitchen by Neptune 3971 2978 Julia Ochsenreither

One of many areas of focus at Helma Interior is Kitchens. We have recently renovated the store as mentioned in previous posts, and as a major element we now have the Kitchen area with all of the furniture components from Neptune ltd. We value spaces that you can live in and want to spend time in, so the concept of slow living is something we strongly believe in. Neptune´s design philosophy encompasses similar principles, which is also evident in their kitchen designs, e.g. with the Suffolk collection. They build their kitchens around the principle that they should not only look good, but also cater to daily life and making it as easy as possible.

Their kitchen cabinetry is comprised solely of solid timber, which allows it to withstand anything without shrinking or warping. The material is renewable, natural, and versatile.  The counter surfaces are also made from high quality material including natural stone, man made composites, or pure oak.

Take a look for yourself at the details and craftsmanship of the beautiful kitchen that is displayed in our store, from Neptune´s Suffolk collection:

Spring Renovations: Store

Spring Renovations: Store 2016 1512 Julia Ochsenreither

We are really excited about the changes that are underway at our Helma-Interior store at Brückenkopf 1/2 Heidelberg! We are renovating the store itself, as well as an additional office space which will be occupied by our in house interior architect, Jannet Butzinger. Check out her website: www.butzinger.com

With the help of Jannet Butzinger, we have designed a new concept that incorporates beautiful furniture from Neptune, a company we have loved and valued for many years! The entrance is one of the areas that we are in the process of renovating. On one side of the new wall addition we will be showcasing a kitchen, from the Neptune Suffolk Collection. On the other side there will be pieces from Neptune’s Chichester collection, more on that later! All furniture pieces will get a beautiful paint finish, that will tie everything together nicely.
