Fredericia notches up to 110 years old

Its creative credo is based on the search for extremely high quality. Right from the start. From 1911, in fact, when it began its life as a chair factory, Fredericia Stolefabrik, taking its name from the historic Danish industrial town in Jutland, where a leading furniture fair had taken place from the previous year until 1983. With NP Ravnsø at the helm, followed by his heirs, all stick to the diktat of the patriarch: love of precision and the perfection of craftsmanship. One page from the 1924 catalog trenchantly states: "Only quality craftsmanship will give you the longevity you desire." In 1955, the new owner and CEO of the company Andreas Graversen, who remained in the role for 40 years, continued the credo: “It is of great importance that the things we buy and live with do not. need to be changed, but rather to grow old with dignity and charm

The company is an industrial player in constant evolution. The Complements collection was launched last September, and is a range of very high quality material parts. They are functional but very beautiful and decorative collectibles to lift the spirits of our daily life and be passed on to future generations. Also in the fall of 2020, the company acquired the historic Erik Jørgensen Møbelfabrik, sharing his passion for traditional design and craftsmanship, as well as the desire to create durable and sustainable furniture. The acquisition allowed Fredericia to complete her portfolio of excellent classic and modern pieces, including the Ox and Corona chairs, respectively by Hans J. Wegner and Poul M. Volther, the Delphi sofa by Hannes Wettstein and the EJ 220 sofa by Jørgensen himself.
