    Platform Shopware
    Industry Retail
    Country Germany

    In 2011, Das Apartment Living was founded in Germany. Aside from the flagship store in Hamburg, an online store has also been established.

    Since then, the huge assortment of furniture in East Coast and Hamptons design, as well as Belgian rural style, has continued to grow.

    Das Apartment Living is an interior design shop specializing in Hamptons and East Coast-style furniture and home furnishings.


    They have a vast selection of products in their store, organized by brands and living spaces. Customers may easily and quickly assemble new furnishings here and delivered them to homes in a matter of days.

    Furniture Market in Germany

    German shops have begun to offer online best products, which is increasing the demand for furniture. In Germany, the sale of furniture products online is steadily gaining traction, retailers may overcome the opposition with omnichannel designs that integrate physical showrooms with online distribution.

    Moreover, its very simple and user-friendly exchange processes for online purchases. This will pave the way for online furniture sales to flourish, with significant potential for the German furniture business.

    Going From Offline to Online

    In 2022, Das Apartment Living decided to close the Hamburg shop and focus solely on the design of the online shop.


    Das Apartment Living will find high-quality furniture and home accessories from exclusive brands as well as products for a great living ambience lifestyle.


    Starting Online Furniture Store with Shopware

    People are purchasing furniture that they require, such as desks, chairs, tables, and other items, as they spend more time at home.


    Das Apartment Living is an online furniture seller that makes customized furniture and sells its products on its own online store i.e. build on Shopware.

    Managing products and catalogs is an easy process because it’s incredibly simple to manage products and your catalog.


    The Shopware Development services are quickly expanding, with more active users. It also has a lot of versatility, a simple interface, and the ability to customize it as distinct components.

    As a result, anyone can create new plugins to combine third-party programs with it.

    From Online Store to Mobile App

    As we know how people are more comfortable buying products online via a mobile app on the go rather than a web application.

    You can’t afford to lose them at this point. Increase the number of loyal, repeat consumers. Provide a mobile app for your store to increase sales.


    A mobile site, also known as a responsive website, is designed to be used on a mobile phone or tablet, allowing customers to effortlessly shop and make transactions.

    Additionally, features such as push notifications with the newest deals, location-based marketing, loyalty-program integration, and the constant branding of the app icon every time they open their phone ensure that users return twice as quickly and spend more within applications.

    Shopware Mobile App Development

    Das Apartment Living utilized the possibility to develop Shopware mobile app and connected with the Mobikul support team for the ultimate solution.

    The idea of creating an app for Das Apartment Living may seem like an excellent idea. Knowing the difference between hybrid and native apps is the first step to helping and figuring out what type of app would eventually move the business forward.


    Hybrid apps integrate the best aspects of both native and web apps. They are available on app stores to be downloaded and can be viewed using a web browser.

    Moreover, they’re mostly online pages wrapped in a mobile app that uses WebView. They do, however, have access to a device’s built-in features.

    A native app design specifically for a device and its operating system that take advantage of device-specific hardware and software.

    Compared to web apps or mobile cloud apps created to be generic across different devices, native apps can give improved speed and take advantage of the latest technology, such as GPS.

    Then client wanted to develop a Hybrid mobile application for their customers. Nevertheless, Webkul’s in-house mobile development team, Mobikul took the project and delivered the hybrid mobile apps as early as possible.

    As the Das Apartment Living owner mentioned they will need the mobile application of their website. We had a customized app for them so that they will be able to provide all of the features of the website on the mobile app to the customer.


    Mobikul’s development team is proficient in all current mobile app development technologies. However, to give the best user experience and design for app users, frameworks and others are using.

    Moreover, making this app does not need to translate any certain language, it will automatically choose that particular language.

    Process of Application Development

    There are the strategic steps of the mobile application development process.

    Firstly the discovery or inception stage of the mobile app development lifecycle involves fine-tuning the app concept.

    Secondly, the server/back-end technology section contains the database and server-side objects required for your mobile app’s supporting functionalities.

    Thirdly, an Application Programming Interface (API) is a way for an app to communicate with a back-end server or database.

    After that, It works hand in hand with testing to ensure that any problems or errors in the program are detected and fixed as soon as possible.

    For native mobile apps, you have to choose a technology stack required by each mobile OS platform.

    iOS apps can be developed using Kotlin or Swift programming language.

    Germany Language Mobile App

    Webkul mobile apps support all languages, including RTL languages. Multi-language support can be implemented in mobile apps, allowing users to view content in their native language.

    With hybrid mobile app development, we don’t require additional work to translate the XML string file. This saves time and allows retailers to get the mobile app faster than native application development.

    All the German language content that appears on the web store will look and appear identical in the hybrid mobile app.
