All furniture elements were made by the drawings of the designer, in cooperation with established partners. For example, the kitchen and wardrobes are made by a small Estonian furniture company, Zacman.
The DAS HAUS sample apartment was designed in harmony with the architectural style and location of the building. In the truest sense of the word, both the location and the style of the building are metropolitan on one hand and beautifully historic on the other. That’s why the interior design of the apartment is luxurious in detail and modern in form, yet cozy and warm in nature.
The interior of this sample apartment in DAS HAUS, the new exclusive commercial and apartment building in the heart of Tallinn, was designed by renowned fashion designer Katrin Kuldma, who is the creator and head of the Amanjeda brand. Katrin Kuldma’s work as an interior architect and furniture designer is less known, but she has been active in this field for more than a decade, since her studies at the Faculty of Interior Architecture at the Estonian Academy of Arts. In addition to AMANJEDA by Katrin Kuldma men’s and women’s collections, a soft furniture collection, Amanjeda Home, is available for lovers of luxurious quality.
The newly completed three-room sample DAS HAUS apartment features an Amanjeda Home sofa, plus wardrobes and a kitchen designed by Katrin Kuldma. The apartment is furnished in harmony with the building’s architecture and location. The modernist DAS HAUS at the intersection of Süda Street and Pärnu Road gives an elite impression. At the same time the cozy and sunny small-town atmosphere, with an opening towards Süda Street, is well featured. That’s why the interior design of the apartment is luxurious in details, modern in form, yet cozy and warm in nature. Just like in clothing, Katrin Kuldma is not swayed in her interior design by instantaneously passing trends. Lasting style, a perfect match of the classics, the environment and the client are what matters. The DAS HAUS apartment possesses a selection of warm tones of camel and sand, as well as white, gray and a little delicate mint. The choice of materials is as natural as possible. The white, high-gloss kitchen adds an extra airiness to the rather spacious apartment. Despite plentiful cabinets and drawers the kitchen does not seem heavy or overstated. The furniture elements are reinforced with metal edges and a kitchen island of stone, which are designed to last for decades. An oak veneer, finished with natural white oil, has been used in the wardrobes. The curtains are lush, the extra length piles onto the floor. The pure white colour of the walls is the perfect background for the carefully selected art.
The works of art, chosen for the apartment, also play an important role in the interior. The large bedroom walls feature a photo series of owls by internationally renowned Estonian nature photographer Sven Začek. The cityscapes, pictures from the joint exhibition of Arne Maasik and Mare Vint, are an excellent fit for the living room.
This sample apartment, designed by Katrin Kuldma, is the perfect luxurious home for an individual person, but can also be a comfortable spot for a couple or a small family. This apartment is ideal for hosting guests, as well as for cozy, private relaxation. The smaller of the two bedrooms is furnished in a way in which it can be used either as a comfortable home office or a schoolchild’s room.
Cooperating with the best Estonian furniture manufacturers has been very important for Katrin Kuldma. According to the designer’s drawings, the furniture elements were made by established partners. For example, the kitchen and wardrobe manufacturer is a small Estonian furniture company that has focused on producing high-quality kitchen furniture for nearly 30 years. Zacman is a family business, a father-and-son furniture factory, located in Valga, in picturesque South Estonia. The founders and owners of the company make most sample models and special orders with their own hands. All of the upholstered furniture is also made by Estonian craftsmen – the bed in the larger bedroom is from Viljandi Delux, the small bedroom’s sofa bed is one of the classics of the legendary Estonian soft furniture brand MANG
The upholstered furniture set from the AMANJEDA Home collection is finished with Loro Piana Interiors’ soft velvet cotton fabric. The furniture modules are comfortably wide and deep. The sofa and pillows are stuffed with feathers.
The living room’s luxury sofa, Bern Lux, comes from Katrin Kuldma’s own Amanjeda Home collection. The Bern Lux sofa is made in cooperation with the Estonian high-quality sofa manufacturer Neiser. Equivalent to world-class sofas, this model is especially notable for its wide, deep proportions, high-quality feather padding and body-friendly and durable fabric. The Amanjeda Home models are characterized by luxurious volumes and world-class fabric selection. Like in the Amanjeda clothing collections, the textiles for Amanjeda Home sofas come mainly from Loro Pina Interiors, the flagship of the fabric industry in the Biella region in Italy. High-quality materials are natural, soft and durable, in radiant colours that are rich in shades.
All of the upholstered furniture is made by Estonian crafters – the bed in the large bedroom is from Viljandi Delux, and the sofa bed in the small bedroom is a classic from the legendary Estonian upholstered furniture brand MANG.

Based on the modern and comfortable environment of the entire building, the interior has been designed with modern features that meet the serene milieu of the historic city centre. With a contemporary, yet contrasting interior design and a large, carefully planned kitchen, everything in this apartment has its purpose.
DAS HAUS is located in a stately surrounding, and therefore each and every detail in the apartment has been carefully selected with the help of a personal designer. This home is designed for people who like to enjoy life and live it playfully. It is a home where modern meets sophisticated chic.
“My Home” is just two simple words, but they possess a big and personal world within – a feeling of security, privacy and happiness. This apartment is designed for people who like to enjoy life and live it playfully.
The entire interior design of the apartment is unpretentious, clean and modern. There’s enough space and opportunity for new owners to give their apartment their own take and make it their home. A place where it’s hard to leave and where it’s fun to come back after a busy day.
Natural shades were used in the interior design. The whole interior design is unpretentious, clean and modern. It incorporates elements from the hottest interior trends right now and fit with a modern lifestyle.
The main emphasis in the interior design was on functionality and thoughtful furniture design. The OCCO selection includes over 300 brands from Europe, including Scandinavia. This provided ample room for creativity and experimenting with various interior design products. For example, the kitchen area was separated from the hallway by a monolithic rectangular structure, on one side of which lies a kitchen stand with fully integrated appliances, while on the other side there is a well-designed wardrobe with decorative open shelves. In order to avoid the impression of a room overloaded with furniture, yet still create a possibility for the family to dine together, a round glass dining table was chosen, which can accommodate up to six people.
The bedroom has a very spacious recessed wardrobe with oak handles, which can accommodate clothes, footwear and household items. A custom-made headboard for the bed, by designer OCCO, provides additional lighting and storage, as well as decorative value.
OCCO has once again proven that creating with pleasure provides a unique and memorable result.
Living Room: trendy pink velvet Calligaris chairs, a custom-made high-quality Italian sofa, a harmoniously matched Italian custom-made wardrobe, and a TV-cabinet in the same colour, as well as custom-made paintings.
Bedroom: concrete imitation wallpaper, luxury bed with quilted velvet, LED strip behind the headboard. Custom-made wardrobe with integrated oak handles.
For an accent, both rooms feature unique high-quality fine wool Zuver rugs.

Solid wood acoustic panels on the walls of the living room to create a playful effect
The kitchen furniture, in coffee tones, by Italian brand Scic, is combined with De Dietrich integrated kitchen technology, ceramic work surfaces, by Marazzi
The new, three-room DAS HAUS sample apartment combines luxurious and modern design with comfortable and homey coziness. Contrasting colors and carefully selected materials create a stylish interior that is thought through to the last detail by OCCO designers. Details that are worthy enough to support both the architecture and location of the building.
In order to achieve the conformity of design throughout the interior, we kept the tonality of design elements in harmony with the tones of its finishing. There are dark parquet floors, while the bathroom has luxurious marble imitation tiles and other elements finished in bronze. Altogether, it is solid and refined.
The kitchen furniture, in coffee tones, by Italian brand Scic, is combined with De Dietrich integrated kitchen technology, highlighted by luxurious metallic elements. Ceramic work surfaces, by Marazzi, add extra grandeur. The eye-catching marble dining table, from Potocco, harmonizes perfectly with the stone of the kitchen island. It can comfortably accommodate a larger number of company as well.
In order to balance the dark tones, we have chosen upholstered furniture, ceiling lights, carpets, and window coverings in light tones. Giving an overall warmth to the apartment. Such a combination has a relaxing, soothing effect, and makes the home a place to feel great. Floor-to-ceiling curtains give you privacy, if you wish, but when these are open, sunlight fills the room. We have used solid wood acoustic panels on the walls of the living room to create a playful effect. Of particular note are the luxurious Saba armchairs with Art Deco legs and fluffy white velvet upholstering. Coziness is added with the custom handmade patterned rugs from the well-known Portuguese manufacturer Ferrera De Sa.
An impressive black wall panel covers a bedroom wall, supplemented by leather bedside tables in a cognac tone, as well as a Tom Dixon designed light hanging from the ceiling. The centerpiece of the bedroom is a solid wood bed with a geometric headboard, from the quality brand Praddy.
Every home needs discreet solutions for storing clothes, shoes and other important items, which is why the spacious wardrobe cabinets of the Italian brand Sangiacomo are integrated into the bedroom and hallway wall. There is also a comfortable functional home office in the sample apartment, furnished with Bolia products. That lets you feel really great while working from home.
