Worlds of Design with Timeless Elegance!
Tip: Click the blue underline links to find out more.
Have you ever heard of MS – Möbel Style? it is one of the top home furnishings department stores in Germany. Now, as a rule, I don’t froth at the mouth over home furnishings, but I am impressed with what Möbel Style has to offer. They call it ‘Worlds of Design with Timeless Elegance’, and I agree.
Möbel Style has such a massive inventory that it would be easy to wander aimlessly, or at least not see all they have to offer within the bounds of what you are looking for, were it not for the three main methods they employ to help you navigate their website.
Basically, it would be easier to tell you what they do not sell, but that would be cheating, so here is a rough list with the German translation in brackets, if the meaning is unclear: dining tables (Esstische), tables (Tische), sofas, stools (Stuhle), beds (Betten), diningroom suites (Essgruppen) and chairs and seats (Sessel) of every description
On top of that lot, there are also individual items, and whole suites for the home office!
So, how can you find your way around this myriad of luxury?
I will name them in order of how easy they were for me.
1) By item: There is a banner of images with links to beds, sofas, tables, and chairs etc. This makes narrowing down the choice of furniture very easy. However, the range of images is limited to the size of the banner.
2) By item: Clicking Möbel (furniture) will cause a list to drop down. This list of home furnishings is quite something, and can appear overwhelming.
3) By style: If you already own a few pieces of one of MS – Möbel furniture, you will probably want new items to match the old ones. Clicking ‘Trends’ will reveal at least eleven pre-designed styles.
4) By search engine: There is a site-wide search engine for you to zero in on precisely what you want, if you are lucky enough to already know which piece of furniture you want. This method cuts out a lot of distraction.
5) Sales and discounts: Clicking Rabatt (discount) or Möbel Style Rabatt) will take you to end-of-line discounted furniture.
If you have never heard of this company before, and want to find out more about them, you can. The firm encourages shoppers to write about their MS – Möbel Style experiences (MS Möbel Style Erfahrungen) in MS Möbel Style reviews (MS Möbel Style Bewertungen).
I haven’t put any illustrations in this piece, because, frankly, there are too many on the MS – Möbel site to choose from, so go and have a look. Take the challenge and see if you can come away within an hour!
