Crafted to last


Encouraging customers to buy fewer but better products has been at the core of Fredericia’s company ethics, ever since we began in 1911.

Our pioneering work with Børge Mogensen is based on combining timeless, modern aesthetics with durable construction and good materials. With the ultimate goal of creating furniture that becomes more beautiful with age, intended to be passed down from one generation to the next.




These core values are rooted in our sense of responsibility, seen in our use of natural materials, our ethical methods of production and our respect for the people using our furniture every day.

At Fredericia, we take our legacy and responsibility seriously when developing and producing furniture, utilising a modern chain of production geared towards today’s global market.








 




Respect for
nature´s materials


Respect for nature and its materials is at the heart of our company.

”It can take 150 years to grow a big and beautiful oak tree, so you really have an obligation to make the best out of it. To craft the furniture to last.”

— Thomas Graversen, Owner of Fredericia













Wood


All wood from Fredericia comes from responsibly managed forests, where replanting is required.

The FSC Forest Management Certification confirms that a forest is being managed in an environmentally responsible manner that preserves biodiversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers. The FSC standard is gradually being applied to all our products throughout 2021.

The European Union Timber Regulation (EUTR) is a trade mechanism imposed by the EU Parliament and Council to reduce illegal logging by ensuring that no illegal timber or timber products can be harvested or sold in the EU.
