Fredericia was established in 1911 as Fredericia Stolefabrik (Fredericia Chair Factory), by entrepreneur N. P. Ravnsø, who successfully led the venture until his death in 1936. From the very start, Ravnsø wanted his new venture to be known for extremely high quality, and throughout his tenure, he hired only the most skilled craftsmen – something that quickly lead Fredericia Stolefabrik to become renown for its high-quality furniture in various styles. Today Fredericia undertakes collaborations with carefully chosen circle of international designers, all renown for their exceptional level of design integrity. All with the ambition of creating contemporary design that is always beautifully crafted, relevant and aesthetically intriguing. Fredericia's design DNA includes the creations of Borge Mogensen, Hans Wegner and Nanna Ditzel. Mogensen's own sofa even takes center place at their Copenhagen flagship showroom.
