Welcome to a design universe inspired by nature’s finest and most durable materials. A place where you can retreat, close the door to the hectic world and immerse yourself in natural tactility and beautiful, earthy shades. A place where both your eyes and mind can find peace, among beautiful interpretations of Scandinavian design. Developed by renowned designers, made from natural materials and produced by some of Europe’s most skilled cabinetmakers.
We are not a traditional design and furniture company; we are on an ever-changing, sustainable journey. A journey towards something new and better. We are an international design company that loves to develop new Scandinavian design, and to create beautiful spaces in homes, workplaces and everywhere in between. We are a creative company with the ambition of taking an active part in global sustainable development while sharing our creativity and passion for making better choices.
Let us take you on the journey in this film that tells you more about us, our design philosophy and our new collection.
Inspired by nature
The beautiful and changing nature around us is our biggest source of inspiration, and along with the Scandinavian design legacy based on simplicity, craftsmanship and authentic materials, we create design collections that have one goal from the initial sketches to the final product; to create designs that last for generations.
Like the Scandinavian seasons, our collective of designers is not afraid of change. They are united by a shared passion for natural materials, sustainable solutions and New Scandinavian Design.
The seasons, the colours, the raw materials and the tactility. All tailor-made and perfected by hand, and transformed into beautiful timeless designs that appeal to all your senses and invite you to touch, feel and fall in love.
Sustainability is the starting point for the development of every new design. Right from the first sketches to the final design, we make more and more sustainable choices. And together we focus on creativity when writing the next chapter on new Scandinavian design.
Our design collections are created from nature's best materials, its tranquil tones and peaceful breathing spaces. Tailor-made and perfected into beautiful timeless designs, where tactile details and long-lasting quality are brought to life in a peaceful universe designed to create calm, luxurious and beautiful spaces.
Our designs are manufactured by some of Europe's best manufacturers and several are thoroughly tested in collaboration with Bureau Veritas in Germany, who are world leaders in quality certification. We are proud that our designs are tested to the highest quality standards – as well as meeting European and global standards for strength, durability, stability and safety – and that our manufacturers follow the BSCI code of conduct. We love the fact that the majority of our wood is FSC® certified, that all our leather is traceable and that our furniture fabrics are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. And all designs in our collection come with a special 10-year guarantee.
A change for the better
We are more passionate, reflective and selective as consumers than ever before. We seek out quality, craftsmanship and timeless design in our quest for things that will last for many years. We love clever and sustainable solutions, and we don't like to waste resources.
At Bolia, we have a passion for natural materials, craftsmanship and longevity, and every design in our collection is made to order. This means that we don't have large levels of stock hanging around and because our furniture designs aren't mass-produced, we minimise the amount of waste material by being flexible and consistent in our use of local European manufacturers and their raw materials and components.
Just like the world around us, professional workspaces are undergoing rapid changes. And thankfully for the better. Our new professional collection is the ideal choice for professional workspaces, designer restaurants and luxury hotels. That's why we love our collaboration with our friends from Steelcase, where together we can create inspiring, flexible and healthy spaces. With people-centric solutions all over the world. So that we can make each working day more inspiring, fun and productive, creating environments that promote job satisfaction, successful cooperation and allow creativity to flow freely.
At Bolia, all spaces, surroundings and stores are a peaceful oasis, designed to make you feel at home. So please, come on in and leave the fast-paced world behind you. Explore, discover and experience our world of design at your own pace, in your own city. In their own way, Bolia's stores are a tribute to the buildings' culture and origins, as well as the beautiful surroundings around them. And every single city has a story to tell.
We have design stores in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria and France, as well as web shops in over 32 European countries. In addition, we work with 600 passionate retailers in over 50 countries around the world.
Meet our CEO
My story includes a long and inspiring career in international retail and e-commerce, where I worked in Europe, the Middle East and Asia before my family and I returned home to Denmark, where I took over as CEO of Bolia back in 2005. Here I am incredibly proud to be part of Bolia’s creative journey together with many brilliant international colleagues, designers, manufacturers, trade agents, dealers and partners.
In addition to a great passion for Scandinavian design and creativity in all form, I also have a passion for electronic music, and I have climbed a number of high mountains around the world. I am grateful for being able to enjoy life with my wife, our three children and two dogs, and my working life with almost a thousand wonderful Bolia colleagues.
