– craftsmanship since 1910
Farstrup Furniture A/S has its roots in the village of Farstrup, and well-established sawmilling traditions. The company was founded as a sawmill in 1910, and after some years the production was expanded to comprice furniture – since 1960 in a significant volume.
We have continuously expanded and modernized the production in Farstrup, and can therefore guarantee that all the furniture is 100%.
"Made in Denmark"
Farstrup Møbler is Danish Design and crafts through and through. In other words, we make furniture from scratch: we cut the wood, process it in our joinery workshop, apply the finish and assemble it.
We also have our own stitching and upholstery workshops. This keeps us in complete control of the high quality that has been our hallmark for decades and which our customers expect of us.
I have been smitten with Farstrup chairs ever since I have laid eyes on them! My first find was the little black #216 classic stick back. It was in poor condition and there were huge chips of paint missing from it. I felt it needed to be saved. After a lot of stripping and sanding, it has been fully restored and it absolutely gorgeous! The 216 model has been reintroduced by Farstrup and is back in production for their European market. Alas, they are not imported to the US. The only option you have to obtain one of these lovelies is to find a vintage one. I will tell you they are out there, but unfortunately, finding a full set in one blow may prove difficult! That is one of the reasons I pick them up. I do find a lot of my single and pair chairs go to homes that are looking to add them to a set already in use! That makes me super happy! This chair does have a doppleganger, though!
I do not know much about FDB Mobler other than they had some very well known designers working with them. Construction and quality seems similar to Farstrup. You cannot go wrong adding any of these to your home. They add a certain charm and mix well with other period furniture, if you aren't a pure modernist.
I have 3 styles of Farstrup chairs in stock now as you will see at the top of the page. Please have a look in the shop to check them out!
