Inspired by Norwegian Nature Since 1941
We have designed and manufactured furniture for 70 years. Two brothers, Otto and Mindor Hjellegjerde, started it all in the fjord village Sykkylven in Norway. In 1946 their third brother, Ingvar, joined the business. With fierce dedication and great skill, the brothers managed to build a business that has become one of the largest furniture companies in Norway. We have grown from a small family business in a basement to what we are today, a company spread over four continents.
Fjords Relax Recliners:
Quality and Craftsmanship
Through all these years, we have produced comfortable quality furniture based on good craftsmanship and Norwegian design. We are proud that the furniture from Fjords are produced with the same dedication and skill as in 1941.
What is it that makes us different from other furniture manufacturers elsewhere in the world? Is it the contrasts landscape that surrounds us, where the endless motion of the ocean meets the strength of the mountains? Or is it the light in Norway - constantly changing - sometimes light, sometimes dark, unable to exist without the other? Both yes and no. The nature around us is robust and what we make is solid. The nature around us is generous - our furniture are made for generous comfort.
Tradition and Innovation
The main key to our philosophy, is to find the combination between tradition and innovation, the point where yesterday's knowledge meets modern technology. This makes us reliable and trustworthy, from product quality to delivery, just like the ocean, we move constantly towards the goal, and like the mountains we will always have our roots in the past.
It makes us unique
It makes us Fjords.
With knowledge about our needs for rest and movement, as well as for using modern technology, we design furniture that will make your everyday life better and easier. The functionality in our furniture is customized to suit your needs for ergonomics and your body's need for rest and movement.
We transcend the barriers, and through knowledge and expertise in design and function, we challenge the possibilities in every part of the furniture.
We have a clear goal when we design furniture:
To improve your living!
