New ideas, exceptional furniture – We provide incentives for an individual way of living

Reinhard Gerling

The furniture and design industry is a world that has its own rules. We know the rules and know how to apply them on our own journey to success. We want to give ideas a chance, those ideas that you can’t find on every street corner, in order to market home furnishings that promise novelty in design and function. The traits of the individual should be reflected in the character of where he lives.

From little helper to interior design

The exciting story of the commercialization of new ideas begins with the founding of Gerling Living in the German town of Rheda-Wiedenbrück in Westphalia. Two creative minds, one of them belonging to the Managing Director, Reinhard Gerling, risked a new way of marketing to provide unknown but innovative products a successful market launch. This set everything in motion; the exciting development of the business and how the products found their way to the marketplace.
