Hobbs Germany Bordeaux Wine Crate Furniture : The Story

Hobbs Germany Bordeaux Collection FurnitureIn my last post I explained that EuroLuxHome.com is now the a US distributor for Hobbs Germany Bordeaux Wine-Inspired Furniture. These pieces are very cool. The European reclaimed oak wood furniture is very high-quality and it is unique as it features drawers made from genuine upcycled wine crates from the Bordeaux region of France.

Hobbs Germany Custom Restaurant Wine furniture

This was a custom order of the Hobbs Germany Bordeaux cabinets for a restaurant. It looks amazing, and the upcycled wine crate drawers are sturdily mounted on a steel base. I explained more about the furniture construction in my previous post.

This is another shot of the custom order for the restaurant. If it is strong enough to stand up to restaurant use, it certainly has the muscle to last a long time in a domestic kitchen!

David & HenryIIThe designer, David Hobbs, is a British gentleman who moved to Germany in 1971 on active duty with the British military. He met Angelika, who is from Ramstein in Rheinland Pfalz. They married and decided to settle in Germany. They began importing British antiques into Germany in the 1970s and then moved into French antiques, specializing in sales to the US military community. Over time, David also began designing furniture and built his own company, Lifestyle Furniture, in 1981.

However, the Bordeaux Collection, launched three years ago, has become his true love and passion. The Hobbs Germany Bordeaux Collection is currently available in seven Finke stores throughout Germany. Finke is a high-end home goods and design store. David and Angelika are actively expanding distribution throughout Europe.

LeoHobbsEuroLux Home is now a distributor for Hobbs Germany in the United States.

On a personal note, David and Angelika also are animal lovers and they have just adopted two baby brother kittens. Their 16-year old Siamese, Kerri-Lee, will most likely not be happy! The kitten making himself at home in this photograph is Leo Hobbs.
Apparently Leo likes crystal!

Angelika

Angelika Hobbs is also a gourmet hobby cook who almost made it to the US TV show Iron Chef! She came in 2nd place in a competition of hobby chefs in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

Angelika says cooking is her absolute favorite thing to do! We can’t wait until we have a chance to visit David and Angelika at their home next year and enjoy a gourmet meal!

Until then, we hope you enjoy browsing the new Hobbs Germany Bordeaux collection on our website. Feel free to ask any questions too… we love to talk about this gorgeous new wine-inspired line!
