About ferm LIVING
Life is full of contrasts. As we navigate expectations and dreams in the search for meaning and comfort, we long for a balanced life with room for chaos and calm, moments of reflection and times of joy. A place where we can be ourselves, realise the true value of things, and feel at home. Based on a passion for authentic design and clear functionality, we challenge ourselves to shape the future and take pride in creating products that help you balance the contrasts of life.
Our soft forms, rich textures and deep colours allow you to create an authentic and composed atmosphere, while avant-garde shapes, striking patterns and curious details add a touch of the unexpected. From our base in Copenhagen, we work with artisans around the world, fusing our Scandinavian mindset with global skills and traditions. We take our responsibility to people and the planet seriously, and expect the same of our partners. We create collections of furniture, accessories and lighting, so you can create space to feel comfortably you.
A Note from Our Founder.
It all started with wallpaper, or rather, a lack of it… In 2005, I had just moved into a house with my husband, and just couldn’t seem to find a wallpaper that fit our taste. I therefore decided to make my own, which resulted in ten different wallpaper designs. I applied to exhibit them at a trade fair in Denmark but couldn’t afford to manufacture all ten designs, so with just one wallpaper and a handful of printouts, ferm LIVING was born.
“Most important to me, however, is that ferm LIVING reflects a set of values that we can be proud of.”
Over the past 14 years, ferm LIVING has grown into something I never imagined. It’s as though we’ve been building a house, and that house has become a home, with a lot of talented employees and a great product portfolio that we continue to grow together.
Most important to me, however, is that ferm LIVING reflects a set of values that we can be proud of. Our biggest ambition is, and has always been, to inspire people to create the kind of space that makes them feel comfortable, that allows them to be themselves in their own home. A home, after all, is much more than a collection of beautiful objects – it’s the place where life happens.
“A home, after all, is much more than a collection of beautiful objects – it’s the place where life happens.”
We will continue to put out inspiring, quality designs in honest materials, continue to take care of our house by investing in its upkeep – fostering long-term partnerships with our manufacturers and a company culture that promotes balance and transparency – and more than ever, continue and advance our commitment to ethical and sustainable practices that are kind to our planet.
Thank you for joining us on the journey.
