About Hjort Knudsen
Hjort Knudsen is a Danish family owned furniture business based on innovation and good craftsmanship. Established in 1973 they now employ 2,300 people and manufacture all their products in Denmark. They have a reputation for producing stylish products and are constantly striving to improve users comfort.
The mission is to create furniture in a modern, classic design that brings pleasure and comfort into people’s lives.
The company is known in the furniture industry as being highly innovative, and as the developer and owner of various patented techniques that improve the user’s comfort.
A wide range of customisation options are available for each piece of furniture, in terms of both design and comfort.
At Hjort Knudsen, optimising production is always a high priority. This applies across the board, from the first sketches to purchasing, manufacture and delivery. We are constantly focused on achieving the best possible quality for the best possible price. This is how we create value for our customers – both now and in the future.
The manufacture of a piece of upholstered furniture is still carried out according to traditional artisan principles.
All our furniture is produced at Hjort Knudsen’s own manufacturing plants in Europe, where 2300 skilled employees daily create chairs, sofas and beds from start to finish. This is also where we test our furniture and sub-components for long-term durability.
Our employees follow our high standards and the final quality control checks ensure that the furniture passes these high standards. An upholstered piece of furniture that partially consists of cold cure foam and fabrics can however have small variations – this is a sign of true craftsmanship.
Hjort Knudsen has chosen to manufacture components for the furniture itself, in order to control the quality and security of supply as best as possible. This is why we produce our own moulded seats/cushions, for example, as well as our own steel and wooden frames.
We regularly invest in the latest technologies, machinery, production facilities and not least skilled employees to future-proof quality and durability in the products.
Hjort Knudsen 5078 Recliner Chair
Hjort Knudsen has made quality furniture at its own manufacturing plants for over 45 years. Here we have experienced, highly trained specialists who work side by side with hi-tech machinery. We know that experience and expertise is crucial to the quality and finish of the furniture. A good finish and proper quality control require both an expert hand and a trained eye. A large-scale production base means we can offer furniture at attractive prices. Hjort Knudsen manufactures many of the sub-components itself. This enables us to control both quality and security of supply. This applies to moulded foam, for example, as well as all metal and wooden frames.
Hjort Knudsen 2701 Modular Seating
Furniture from Hjort Knudsen is built to last. The basic elements are either solid wood or birch cross-veneer plywood and a frame of steel with tough ‘No-sag’ springs in the back. With the exception of a few individual models, all sofas contain cold cure foam in the seat, back and armrests.
The armchairs also have cold cure foam and No-sag springs in both seat and back. Unlike the sofas, the armrests for the chairs are manufactured in birch plywood.
