Product Story

In 1944, Niels Otto Moller began his cabinetry company, where old craft traditions are still used today. Danish cord seats are known for their durability – easily withstanding decades of frequent use – and the strength of this material made it a smart substitute for tires when rubber was in short supply during WWII. What’s amazing about that history is that Danish cord is made of tightly twisted paper. Being a natural material, Danish cord is very pleasant to sit on and the way that it’s woven provides lasting comfort. Møllers is still a small family-owned business and is now managaged by Niels’ son, Jørgen Henrik Møller. These chairs are authentic, fully licensed products of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. Made in Denmark.

The seat is woven by hand from one continuous 425-foot-long piece of cord.
To make the frames, the company selects the raw wood themselves from environmentally friendly areas.
Machines are never used for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and can’t replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand.

Brand Info

The underlying strength of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik is its proud tradition of classic craftsmanship. And we never compromise. Anything second-best has to go - because only the best quality is good enough. This principle applies all down the line, from the selection of the raw wood to the finished item of furniture. Our furniture is assembled at our own factory, where we train our own workers in the cabinetmaker's art. In that way we ensure the continuity of the high quality which is at all times our ultimate goal.
