Life around our furniture
Carl Hansen & Søn creates furniture for those who share our passion for lasting quality and timeless style. Our furniture forms a unique relationship with the surrounding environment, evoking an air of classic elegance and establishing a framework for a life well-lived.
Designing this space was extremely considered. We amended the architectural drawings several times as we saw how the light interacted with the rooms, Louisa Grey, founder of interior design studio House of Grey, explains. She continues: Functionality was important but so too was creating a haven that is both calming and energizing. We invested in the bones, using natural materials and a variety of textures to humanize the spaces and engage all five senses. It needed to stand the test of time, not only though materiality but also by evolving as we use it.
In my practice, we apply seven design principles for wellbeing, one is the immersive experience – we know good design feeds the senses.
We consider each piece of furniture for its intrinsic value and how it engages with the surrounding environment.
In making our home, we wanted to celebrate family and the social environment. Living with chairs of organic functionality, you feel so supported and comfortable. Hans J. Wegner's CH25 lounge chair is such a wonderful addition to our living space: the oak is tactile and aging beautifully from natural oils as we use it. It helps to ground us and bring us closer to nature.
Our kitchen space is a hub for many social gatherings, from weekend yoga to healing sessions. The natural warmth of the Douglas fir and its noise-calming qualities are huge wellness attributes.
I combined Wegner’s CH46 and CH47 dining chairs in natural oak and black to mix tones and soften the look.
Marble brings natural patination combined with a practical surface. Having a variety of textures changes the pace of different areas and humanizes the design.

Louisa Grey, Founder of House of Grey:
“My style is one of quiet, understated luxury. It’s an ethos derived from a love of slow living and a choice to enhance our environment through good, functional design. This, in turn, gives us more time: the ultimate luxury.”
“My background is in weaving, so I’m drawn to the natural woven seat of Wegner’s CH25 lounge chair. I sit in the chair often and find this very restorative and supportive.” – Louisa Grey.
