Made.com opens an apartment in Amsterdam for influencers to take Instagram pictures
Above its showroom in Amsterdam sits a Made.com 'instapartment' - an Instagram-friendly apartment which it describes as 'a haven for instagrammers.'
Featuring bright red arched doorways, two-tone walls and stained glass partitions, the immersive space has been erected to show how Made.com's furniture sits in a real home. It features a double bedroom overlooking a courtyard, an en suite bathroom, a sitting room and lounge.
The instapartment will also be used for events and workshops, as well as offering an overnight stays.

Beyond Amsterdam, Made.com hopes to roll out more instapartments as a way to give real context to its furniture.
The move is Made.com's most recent foray into influencer marketing. Back in October, it put out a call to arms for content producers to become part of its advertising campaign, in a bid to create an army of brand advocates.
As part of a number of internal changes, the furniture online-retailer created a Europe-wide influencer ream back in January.
Discussing the opening of its Amsterdam instapartmen, Jo Jackson, chief creative officer for the brand said: “We wanted a space that we could invite people into - in the same way you would your own home - this apartment is the Made home. We kept a lot of the original personality of the building and gave it the Made treatment.
