1908: A Company is Born
The Carl Hansen & Søn story begins on October 28th, 1908. In Odense, on the Danish island of Funen, Carl Hansen founds his eponymous company. A trained cabinetmaker, he produces bespoke furniture in the heavy, Victorian style of the era. As all furniture is crafted by hand in a small workshop the size of a two-room apartment, the foundation for Carl Hansen is quality, craftsmanship and tradition.
