Simplicity and brightness proposal are the result of careful research that led to the combination of exotic materials and advanced technologies. The onyx and ebony used for the embodiments of the walls confer particular shades of color that change depending on the reflect light. Mies creates specifically many of the furnishings of the Villa, including "Brno chair" in two versions and "tugendhat chair". Both pieces are made of steel as to resume the structure of the house and to return to the simplicity, that doesn't miss any details, as tipically of the designer.

Particulary impressive is the wall made of Macassar ebony which limits the dining room. The curved line that divides the living room from the library reflects and emphasizes the effects without solution of continuity with which Mies wanted to cover the whole house. Another impressive element inside the Villa are the huge windows that overlook the center of Brno that allow the entrance of all the light needed to render the atmosphere studied by Mies.
