It could have been a lamp or a coat stand. It could very easily have been a chair. When we started, our only wish was to make something usable, beautiful and durable – a homage to the Danish design tradition of making functional objects without compromising on craft.
It’s a way of thinking and being that we share with the exceptionally skilled craftspeople at A. Petersen.
Founded in 2014 to honour the Danish design tradition while bringing it into the future, A. Petersen makes furniture slowly. Each piece is crafted in a measured way with an acknowledgement of tradition and a determination to last a lifetime – and beyond.
The philosophies of our two companies are informed by history but inspired by the demands of a sustainable future. Just as our sweaters are knitted to last a lifetime, A. Petersen make furniture with a conscience.
Special thanks to Lærke, Kim, Jon, Gustav and Kari & Anders Petersen
