DESIGN THAT MOVES

FROM DENMARK. TO YOU. 

 

Danish furniture making has a long tradition of designs that are tailored to the requirements of the body. We pride ourselves in collaborating with designers that advance this approach and help us bring progressive, good looking and comfortable furniture to the world. To move furniture design forward while allowing you to move into your own individual comfort zone. That’s designs rooted in the Danish furniture tradition optimised for you.

Because, what is more relaxing than knowing that the design is crafted for functionality, endurance and comfort – without compromising on look? Below we explore this approach to design, interview Frans Schrofer, the designer behind the Athena and Parma recliner designs and give you tips on investing in design that moves – both in a literal and figurative sense.

The time for levers and clunky functionality is over

When you hear the word recliner, your mind might drift to big clunky leather furniture that might be comfortable but where compromises on design and functionality have been made. That time is over. With electricity and smooth transitions, now’s the time for beautiful design without compromise.

The Parma sofa by Frans Schrofer is a great example of this approach. The electric motion mechanisms in the headrest and the footrest are independent, allowing you to adjust the comfort precisely to your present need. The sofa can be placed against the wall without limiting its functionality, and the buttons for both the headrest and the footrest are hidden but still very easy to use.

Available in 100+ different fabrics and leathers that encapsulates and in their own way plays off the slim lines and exclusive stitching details of the sofa, Parma is more than great individual comfort – it’s a beautiful addition to the modern home.

How to get the best seat in the house

The personalized comfort of a recliner sofa or chair quickly will make it a favourite in the home. With added functionality and many design options, here are a few tips to pick your right design.

Make it fit you and your home

You’re unique and you deserve furniture that fits your body, your style and your purpose. If it is a recliner chair, consider whether a swivel function to make it easy to turn is needed. Consider if the sofa will stand against the wall or freely in the room and ensure that it looks good no matter what. Tall or short? Make sure that the design fits your body type and that you benefit from the neck, lumbar and leg support.

Visit the store

Visit the store, try it, recline it and see if you can find your individual comfort epitome. Be thorough and once you have zeroed in on the design, have the staff help you in picking the fabric or leather to make the design fit your home and your lifestyle. And if you need an expert in your home, why not have an interior designer come visit you?

Remember its different purposes

A recliner sofa or chair should be your go-to place to for cuddling up with a book, for watching a movie, relaxing or even taking a nap. When trying out the designs remember all its purposes and sit, slouch, recline and try it in all the ways you would use it in your home. Get in and out of the designs and make sure that they are easy to use over and over again.

Sunnie, Interior Designer

The Lucca recliner chair is one of my favourite designs this year. It has a real mid-century modern feel about it, especially with the veneer side panels.

Lucca

Designer Anders Nørgaard found his inspiration to the Lucca recliner chair in music. Like the dynamic and personal nature of music, Lucca can be composed to fit your personal taste.

Functionality all around

Having furniture that adapts to the situation is not only about comfort. A coffee table where the table top can be raised for a meal in front of the TV, dining tables that seamlessly extend when friends are coming over and different furniture with integrated storage make life easier and more flexible.
