KARE celebrates 100 shops worldwide!
With 100 shops worldwide, KARE celebrates bold, surprising and highly individual interior design. Jürgen Reiter and Peter Schönhofen were students when they founded their first store in Munich in 1981. They realized that the world of interior needed more rock and roll! Today KARE is in more than 40 countries and stands for unique interior design ideas in an infinite variety of styles. Beyond boredom and always full of inspiration.
Bienvenido a Mallorca!
Let’s start a perfect day at Mallorca and get surprised by the hidden treasures of the island.
For breakfast we will have typical delicacies: Coca de Patata, rolls made of potatoes, still warm and covered with powdered sugar. Dip it into hot chocolate! Or try Ensaimadas, sweet yeast pastries filled with pumpkin jam, with a cup of Café con Leche. Don’t miss!
Our island tour starts – of course – at our brand new KARE store at Santa Ponsa, just 15 minutes away from Mallorca’s capital Palma. At our store we provide all the ingredients to create the new Majorcan furnishing style. Furniture made of olive wood, colorful floor tiles, natural stone walls and upholstery in light colors characterize the roots of Mediterranean furnishing style. But today Majorcans love to mix traditional elements with modern living themes such as the Scandinavian look or industrial chic. Surprised?

Mallorca is Europe’s most desirable destination for pleasure seekers and individualists, and the internationality of Mallorca’s audience is reflected by the interior design of romantic old town retreats and rural Fincas.
Here is our personal tour for you:
The other side of Palma: Visit Es Jonquet, the historic windmill district close to Santa Catalina. Discover cosy bars and nice restaurants or visit the farmers’ market. Try “Tunel de Mallorca” a herbal infusion which is a traditional digestif. Take a walk around the well-known cathedral of Palma de Mallorca and check out small boutiques for shopping. While strolling around you will be surprised by the art nouveau ornaments at some rows of houses.
If you like visiting markets, take a trip to Santanyi in the South or Sineu in the heartland of the island where the locals and farmers meet in a layed back atmosphere. You may find nice handicraft between stalls with vegetables, fruits and livestock.
Are you more into picture-perfect beaches?
One of the most beautiful beaches of Europe is Es Trenc in the South of Mallorca. Six kilometers of natural, white sandy beaches, dunes and turquoise blue sea. Best time to visit the popular destination is the low season – it’s worth the while. Close to Es Trenc the Majorcans harvest sea salt which is very popular among gourmets pure or flavoured with herbs –and also a great souvenir.
As an alternative programme to the beach we recommend the UNESCO world heritage Tramuntana. The wild mountain range in the East of our island offers Mallorca’s highest mountain Puig Major with a gorgeous view, lonely valleys and cliffs falling away sharply to the sea. Visit the picturesque mountain villages of Orient and Alaro.
Rafa’s furnishing tipps
Use white to your advantage. White is the perfect partner to whatever style you pick for your home. It has the power to enlighten your spaces and matches perfectly to different colors and patterns.
Take a risk! There is always something inside you that wants to make a bold move, but normally you overthink it. There are plenty of furnishing options that will make it easy for you to take that risk and give your home a personality.
Fall in love with natural materials and let the warmth of nature take over your house. Wood is a must for every home. There is always some wooden furnishing piece that will fit perfectly with your style at home.
Our recommendations for clubbing, food and drinks at Palma
The Duke restaurant in Santa Catalina: Feel the laid back surfer vibe while enjoying exquisite food
Canlea restaurant in Calle San Jaume: If you like to try some new and amazing combinations, this is the place to visit
Clubbing: There’s no other place to be as the famous Pacha
If you fancy some great cocktails, you’ll have to go to Brassclub, no one creates better ones than the well-known barman Rafa Martín.
