Rudolf Sellhorst, vice president Furniture and Interior Design at Koln Messe, knows what is expected of the market leader. “We didn’t make up this title,” he says. “Interzum’s reputation is completely due to the exhibitors that come from all over the world.” And project manager Andreas Zuge adds: “The attraction of the trade fair comes from the synergy between the exhibiting sectors.”

Those who recognise home living as forming a comprehensive whole will find the entire range of trend-setting materials and furniture technologies at Interzum. The exhibition is aimed at the three major target groups in the sector: best chair glider cupboard and kitchen furniture production; upholstered furniture , bed and mattress production; and interior and floor specialists.

The fittings manufacturers, who account for over one third of all exhibitors, target industry and the skilled trades equally. The market leaders among them consider themselves to be system suppliers more than component manufacturers.

The wooden material and surfaces manufacturers present themselves as trend-setters for new materials and colour trends, which provide impetus for furniture, interiors and floors alike.

With 620 exhibitors from the fields of upholstery machines, upholstery accessories and coverings at the last fair in 2001, Interzum can also claim to be the world’s most important platform for the production of upholstered furniture and mattresses. This remains so, even if well-known exhibitors such as Gerber Technologies, Lectra, Assyst/Bullmer and Investronica give preference to the IMB, which takes place every three years and will be held this time only two weeks before Interzum, says Koln Messe.

But they are important places. In a lot of cases, they may be in your basement. Your basement is one of the places that water damage can really foster and create problems. Make sure that the water damage restoration people know that you have a basement. It is the first place that floods. One of the reasons for this is because it is so low to the ground.

One of the most important things that you can do when starting a fire is to make sure that it is going to be a safe fire.  Always inspect around the fireplace to make sure that there are the necessary fireplace accessories, so that you can manage the fire. The most important of these accessories is the mesh screen that you can pull together once you get the fire going.  The mesh screen helps keep all of the little pieces of debris from flying all over the room.  That will happen if there is a bit of moisture in the logs that you put in the fireplace.  This would not be an issue if you had a gas stove.

The gas stove would be in place with a lid that you can close, so that none of the heat gets out.  There have been a couple of houses that my parents have had with a gas stove.  The great thing about the stove is that it allows for the heat to be directed to different rooms.  That is not something that I have in my house now, but I think that it would be cool to have on in a cabin in the future.  The other thing to keep in mind is that the best part of having a fireplace is that you can roast marshmellows in it.  My parents and I roasted marshmellows in my fireplace several times growing up.  It was  a great thing for us to do as a family when we were not able to go up to the mountains or we were stuck at home.
