Sustainable quality

We don’t just care about our designs; we care about how they come to be. We are picky when it comes to materials, craftsmanship and sustainability. Materials must be fine and luxurious, crafted environmentally right and socially responsible. Our leather is traceable and contains no harmful chemicals. We use only feathers from animal production. Our wood adheres to the EU timber regulation, EUTR. We cover your sofa in wool that is IWTO certified ensuring quality and good working environments.

 

To us, New Scandinavian Design is not just what we do, it’s also where we do it. The majority of our collection is designed and crafted in Denmark and Europe. More than 20% of our volume is produced in Denmark and more than 70% in other European countries.

We are big fans of natural materials such as wood, leather, marble, veneer, metal, concrete, resin and wool, and we love to create contrasts with colours, details, humour and surprising combinations to create unique and exciting designs.

 

Our aim is to create high quality furniture that will last for many years. We minimise the usage of low-durability materials such as chipboard, laminated chipboard, board-on-frame etc. These low cost materials are heavily used in the furniture business, but are not entirely environmentally friendly because of their low quality, durability and high waste rate.

    • Beautiful on the inside and outside
