Fredericia was founded in 1911 as Fredericia Chair Factory by entrepreneur NP Ravnsø, who successfully ran the company until his death in 1936. From the beginning, Ravnsø wanted his new company to be known for its extremely high quality and throughout During his tenure, he hired only the most experienced craftsmen – which quickly led Fredericia Stolefabrik to become known for its high-quality furniture in a variety of styles. The Ravnsø family owned and operated Fredericia Stolefabrik until 1955.
Fredericia Furniture began as a thoroughly Danish design house, born of a proud heritage. A heritage of unwavering commitment to the perfection and advancement of design craftsmanship.
This quickly became known as a buzzword for the furniture industry when the small western Danish industrial town of Fredericia was the setting for Denmark’s international furniture exhibition. So it was no coincidence that Ravnsø chose Fredericia for his company. At the time, it was hosting the Nordic International Furniture Exhibition, also known as “The Fair,” which was first held in 1910. Until 1983, Fredericia was the venue for the fair, where manufacturers presented a wide range of Danish designs that would be developed during the mid-century.
Nordic Urban Berlin sells the complete range of Fredericia Furniture.
