Designer

Our own
signature

It is our declared aim to incorporate our own Horst signature into each model development. Not only the visual appearance of a product reflects the skills of a designer, but also the incorporation of a product into an existing range.

The skill of a designer must also bring about the efficient viability of a model, so that the new developments can also be woven into the manufacturing processes.

 

 

The following designers are responsible for the design of our products:

  • Horst Design Group
  • Michael C. Brandis
  • Wolfgang C.R. Mezger
  • Gerald Brandstätter
  • Birgit Hoffmann
  • Mutschler & Winkler

Quality

Guiding principle

"Quality that sits!" ... Three words that include what our premium manufactory can do in Steinen. The consumer should experience the first contact with our upholstered furniture that the quality is unique in processing and seating comfort.

Fundamental concept

As an upholstered furniture manufacturer, we are committed to providing our customers and end users with quality that meets the highest standards. The high flexibility in the individual production is another outstanding feature of our performance. We live this challenge daily!

Quality of workmanship

We understand the words “processing quality” and continuously improve and expand all work processes that we control. Targeted work effort by experts allows us to guarantee a fluctuation-free and outstanding quality.

Final inspection

Every piece of furniture leaving our factory is subject to a final inspection. Experts use a detailed checklist to carry out this inspection before shipment. The result is a structured improvement process that affects the entire service chain and offers the customer a first-class product.

Warranty

Horst AG grants you a five-year warranty on the construction, on the materials used and their processing. Cover materials are subject to a separate warranty.

AVOR

The serious preparation of all work processes increases the standard of quality. The high level of flexibility across all areas, the special production offered and the efficient readiness for delivery, satisfy all customer requirements.

Cut

Here shows where the expert has learned his craft. Only a trained eye can recognize the smallest defects in leather and fabric.
The most modern cutting facilities are very efficient and allow us an efficient industrial production in an upholstered furniture manufactory.

Stitching

Only trained professionals are employed in the important operations. Therefore, you as a customer immediately recognise that it is of high quality. Our staff will do everything to make you satisfied.

Spring configuration

The substructure of our upholstered furniture shows how a great deal of effort can be put into obtaining a very long service life so that the customer can enjoy the furniture for a long time. Only high-quality materials and technically mature techniques are processed here.

White upholstery

To ensure that the high-quality covering materials, whether leather, fabric or microfiber, reach their perfect development, the white upholstery is a crucial link in the entire production process and significantly supports the comfort.

Upholstery

The commission-based production of our products allows an individual response to the specific customer requirements. Proven professionals are working hard every day to make your valuable upholstered furniture.

Shipping

An often-underrated department in the whole process of a company. But not in the Horst AG. We know how important a careful delivery can be. So, we are anxious to deliver our valuable upholstered furniture to the furniture trade firstly in a dust-free plastic film and secondly in a shock-proof thick packaging casing.

Inner workings

Wooden framework

Consisting of solid steamed beech, spruce, multiplex panels and wood fibre panels, combined with high-quality solid wood dowel joints and select metal hinges. All frame edges are broken-down or rounded to prevent chafing of overlying materials or threads. Thus, we can guarantee a very long life, which will withstand any such high "stress test" by family, pets and friends, etc. 

Spring base

Hardened, painted steel springs (Original Nosag System) are used as a basic base suspension. High-quality rubber belts are used in technically feasible and constructively planned model parts, which also guarantee a very high level of comfort.

Seat cushions

The upholstery cushions are processed only with high quality materials. The high air permeability of the lining and also the tear strength of the seams and chambers, as well as the puffability and the refined construction of the seat cushions, are given high attention. Occasionally, innerspring or “Rombo-Fill” fillings are used, if the formal design of the model is desired.

Back cushions

Again, the highest demands are placed on the materials. These also must take on different functions and also offer a high level of seating comfort.
The supportive upholstery such as " Rückenboss " is a sign of a technically mature construction and ensure a long, non-tiring and comfortable sitting.

Features

We purposefully incorporate flexibility, functionality and technical model modifications into the development of new models, so that the user can find an individual application to his needs. Need-based seat heights, armrest adjustability, footrests and recliner variants are just a few examples of our flexible range of models. The development department of Horst AG recognizes the needs and puts "almost" every wish into action.

Covering materials

Leather collection

Horst Collection processes only premium cow hides. Each rawhide is unique in its structure and has different characteristics, such as scarring, which the animal incurred during the course of its life. These natural characteristics, as well as slight variations in colour from hide to hide, are characteristic of genuine leather and can therefore be deliberately incorporated within a furniture set! Natural features, structural differences and slight variations in colour of the leather are no reason for complaint, since they make the leather only more beautiful and unique.

 

 

Product Description L40 Avantgarde

This article is a particularly valuable thick full-grain leather that obtains its remarkable appearance and supple comfortable touch from its thickness and naturalness. In order to keep the Avantgarde leather as natural and breathable as possible, the leather was affected as little as possible during production. The surface of the leather is determined exclusively by the fibre structure within the skin of the animal and is intentionally course and irregular.

Product Description L10 Classic

This collection is a classic embossed and pigmented leather, whose protective finishing makes it especially resistant and easy to clean without affecting the comfort and the softness of the leather.

All leathers meet or exceed the requirements of RAL-GZ 430.
In addition, the entire leather collection fulfils the requirements for British Standards.

Leather care in general

Protect your suite from direct sunlight and heat (e.g. radiators). From time to time, dust your suite with a dry, soft cloth, avoiding excessive rubbing.

When removing dried-on dirt and stains, use only the products recommended and recommended by the manufacturer, following the instructions provided.

Never use detergents or other substances not recommended by the manufacturer.

And always remember that real leather becomes more beautiful and natural through daily use, which is why the motto "less is often more" applies to the care of your suite.

Care instructions

During the daily use of your sofa, dust, crumbs, hair and various other particles accumulate. Just like other everyday items, your sofa should also be cleaned regularly. To remove light soiling such as the above, it is sufficient to vacuum your upholstery regularly with the upholstery nozzle of your vacuum cleaner and with a low suction force. Occasionally it may suffice to brush the fabric in the direction of the nap with a soft brush.

Should major contamination occur, for example by the accidental spilling of drinks, you should react as soon as possible. This involves quickly picking up coarse dirt or liquids with a dry kitchen towel. In the case of further cleaning activities, especially when using cleaning and cleaning agents, it is imperative to take due account of the material-specific properties of the chosen reference material. Otherwise, there may be color deviations as well as deviations in the surface texture and durability of the fabric.
