Who we are

Erik Jørgensen delivers furniture to countries all over the world, and the brand is associated with a sound aesthetic that is more than a passing fad. An aesthetic that rests on tradition and craftsmanship, but which is also nurtured by innovative furniture designs by both young and more established designers.

Founded in 1954

The Erik Jørgensen story started in the town of Svendborg on the southern coast of the Danish island of Funen. Erik Jørgensen, who originally trained as a saddler and upholsterer, started to pursue his passion for furniture professionally, and in 1954 he started a workshop in town. Erik Jørgensen’s in-depth knowledge of materials and sense of form drive his professional development along with his curiosity and his flair for spotting new market trends. To this day, this understanding of customer demands and needs forms the foundation of Erik Jørgensen.

Erik Jørgensen’s vast network and constructive dialogue with the staff of Danish architects also help bring a steady flow of work to the workshop, which by now has become an actual furniture factory and earned a loyal following of fans who appreciate the sublime craftsmanship and simplicity of design that the factory’s skilled craftspeople deliver. This high level of craftsmanship remains one of the keys to Erik Jørgensen’s success.


Today, Erik Jørgensen is run by Niels and Ole Jørgensen, and it continues to be driven by the same ambitions of renewal and quality. By visions of perfection and provocation. Of the tangible expression of sublime comfort and quality craftsmanship.
