Bauhaus Design and Decor; Spontaneous Minimalism by Rockin Cushions

c:Bauhaus Design

“[Bauhaus is a design movement that embodies the spirit of the modern age … it had come from an era of economic turmoil and cultural conservatism, and it offered a truly radical, international and optimistic vision of the future…”


The Bauhaus Style is more than 100 years old but continues to inspire the most current artists – from architecture to painters to interior designers. Started in 1913 by German Modernist Walter Gropius, the movement aimed to make art functional. The Bauhaus influence is no dollhouse aesthetic; minimalist in its practicality but bold with its colors, the Bauhaus style imbeds spontaneity into simplicity and transforms the every day into a whimsical feast. 


The Bauhaus Influence reimagines minimalism with a keen sense of joy that make simple shapes pop with vivid colors. And today, this vision of sustainable conservatism paired with an individualistic and unapologetic flair perfectly embodies our present mindset: that design and fashion must create with as little waste as possible help the planet they inhabit. And the Bauhaus style is both responsible and convivial. The stark, geometric shapes in bold colors give homeowners the chance to be daring and personal with their design. Even after a hundred years, the Bauhaus mission of functional art from the heart continues to ring true. 


We at Rockin Cushions uphold bold and sustainable design as our primary design mission, so we are obsessed with the Bauhaus Influence. To those wanting to embrace the loud yet straightforward techniques without breaking the bank on outrageous, non-minimalist prices, we’re here to help. 


Here are some Rockin Cushions + IKEA arrangements that embody the Bauhaus style to give you bold colors and shapes without excessive costs.
