About the Design:
There is a science behind Danish Modern design. The world famous school of design in Copenhagen have made numbers of studies from the perfect height of a chair to how deep a cabinet should be. They also found out, that if a desk is placed against a wall, the thought process and work efficiency will lower. This is the reason why so many Danish desks are duel sided, so they can be place in the middle of a room, or facing the side against the wall.
Original Danish Modern designs made in the 1950’s-60’s and feature classic mid-century designs and craftsmanship. We personally refurbish all the teak and rosewood pieces in our workshop in Jersey City.
We source all our products from private homes in Denmark. Our owner Lars, travels across his native country, knocking on doors, meeting people on the street, going to markets and building a network of personal sellers.
