Feel at home!

Our kela brand story is manifested in the new claim "Fühl Dich Zuhause” (Feel at home) and in all elements of the kela brand image. We want you to fulfil your desires within your own four walls, realise your interior dreams and reinvent yourself again and again. And that your home is always YOUR home. A place in which you feel comfortable and that appeals to all your senses..

Michael Kasper brings comprehensive expertise from years of industry experience.
