My name is Emma and I did a one-week internship at Helma Interior Design in Heidelberg. During that time, I was able to get a good overview of the services Helma Interior is offering their clients. The store offers high quality furnishings in a modern style as well as some selected antiques. Furthermore, they provide a custom project planning with an interior architect. The entire store has a very pleasing and elegant atmosphere.
During the course of my internship, I was able to get an initiation of vending at a retail store. I learned some useful things, which are also very handy to know for everyday life. For me personally, it was very much fun to get in contact with clients. Due to the fact that every client is different and you get in contact with interesting people.
Later in that week I got to meet Kristine Schober, who is one of the interior architects at Helma interior. She shared some of her expert knowledge with me and explained the main substance of her current projects. One of them included a window decoration. Therefor she taught me many things, for example what different types of pleat tape you can get. The following day I then participated in one of her counselling interviews, which was very fun.
Ultimately I can say, that the store offers a wide spectrum of interior furniture and accessories. From wooden furniture to thin, exclusive fabrics and custom service you can get there everything an interior enthusiast could ask for.
It was a pleasure that Helma Interior offered me the opportunity to gain an insight into this job.
