RUN BY FAMILY
DRIVEN BY PASSION
Founded in 1961 and rooted in the German tradition of exceptional quality and highly skilled craftsmanship, we have built our success on a firm belief in the honesty of materials, the purity of shape, and the necessity of a passionate approach. This has made blomus a leading provider of interior design and accessories to last and be loved for generations to come.
Run by the fourth generation of the Blome family in the town of Sundern in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany, we carry the legacy of strong family allegiance and a talent for business, but blomus as a brand also tells the story of a geographical area that was once the home of a thriving steel and coal industry. The family business was established in 1921 as a manufacturer of bicycle parts, and in 1961 we branched out into gifts and design items, locally produced from copper, brass, pewter, and stainless steel. Year 2000 marked another shift in our history, when the name blomus was chosen, and the visionary design brand of today was born.
Times have changed, and the region of North Rhine-Westphalia is no longer the industrial hub for steel production; however, our historic roots still play a vital role, and we continue to be known for our devotion to exquisite quality, a highly innovative approach to product development, and a desire to look beyond the mere aesthetics of a product and view its practical properties as equally important. In combination with an overall design philosophy that expresses simplicity and an uncompromising approach to colour, shape, and choice of material, this has positioned us as a strong player on the international design scene.

As a major player, blomus continues to influence and shape the international design scene, captivating audiences with its refined and thoughtful approach to creating products that seamlessly blend aesthetics and utility. This enduring legacy reinforces blomus' standing as a beacon of quality and innovation in the world of design.
QUALITY ABOVE ALL
An uncompromising devotion to quality is the hallmark of blomus, and this has brought our products to the forefront of the international design world. We do not compromise when we choose our materials or mode of manufacturing – and we always strive to improve wherever possible. But to us, quality also extends beyond the actual product into our relations and how we operate as a company in all aspects and on all levels. We want to be known as respectful, honest, reliable, and hard-working partners to the people we work with and the customers we cater to. This is our true dedication to quality.
NEW AND OLD MATERIALS
The timeless beauty of stainless steel
Stainless steel has been an important material for blomus since its foundation, and it continues to play a fundamental part in our success. Today, our product range has grown into a wide variety of objects in an equally diverse selection of materials such as stoneware, smoked cork, linen, concrete, and wood; however, we still treasure the unique qualities of stainless steel – in the company of other materials, or standing alone in all its unobtrusive perfection.
In today’s digitalised world, we need to cultivate all the tangible qualities of life to remind us of where we come from and how we can live in balance with ourselves and with our immediate surroundings. At blomus, therefore, we strive to create objects and pieces of furniture that we can connect with beyond their practical importance in our daily lives. We believe in modern minimalism, curated spaces and strong, simple shapes. However, as we need fewer items of furniture, the remaining ones should carry deeper meanings.
To us, every design starts with defining the right material and determining the ideal shape that makes best use of its qualities. A clear visual presence, clean lines and an often subtle and restrained colour scheme inspired by nature are all key elements of our design ethos. We rely on natural materials and have a sensitivity towards shape and craft that inspires people to decorate spaces as modern sanctuaries full of well-being and tranquillity with a truly homey atmosphere.
A clean and modest shape stripped of any and all unnecessary details, yet infinitely complex and imbued with warmth, elegance, and sensuality. This notion of modern simplicity is at the core of our design philosophy. Only by looking beyond passing trends and by constantly seeking the perfect shape, we will create objects with the desired relevance and longevity – and only by letting simplicity be our guiding principle, we are able to invent modern classics that will gain international appeal and become timeless testaments to the unique blomus aesthetic.
At blomus, our commitment to excellence goes hand in hand with a deep environmental awareness. Our design philosophy, characterized by simplicity, feminine sensibility, and unwavering dedication to quality, extends beyond visual aesthetics to ecological responsibility.
Our material selection follows a rigorous process based on sustainable resources and recyclable materials. This not only extends the lifespan of our products but also minimizes our ecological footprint.
Innovative product developments at blomus combine functionality and environmental friendliness. We invest in energy-efficient manufacturing processes and constantly seek ways to reduce waste and use resources more efficiently. This commitment is reflected not only in product quality but also in our contribution to protecting natural resources.
Our sustainability efforts also include promoting conscious consumer behavior. Through timeless designs, we aim to encourage the choice of aesthetically pleasing products that simultaneously support a sustainable lifestyle.
At blomus, sustainability is not just a responsibility but also a source of inspiration for future innovations that meet both customer needs and environmental requirements.
