The solid wood and veneer are selected with respect and consideration for the environment. The furniture is produced so that the color and structure match in the individual piece of furniture. We cut the individual pieces of wood ourselves to minimize waste and ensure the best utilization of the raw materials. Our furniture is manufactured on advanced machines, but according to classic principles. Drawers are made of solid wood. All furniture parts are polished by hand to ensure a high-quality finish. An ongoing quality control ensures that furniture from Aksel Kjersgaard A/S can be used for many generations

The furniture factory was founded in 1952 in Odder by master cabinetmaker Aksel Kjersgaard, who, after working for more than 3 years as a naver(travelling craftman) in Europe and Morocco, wanted to try out his own ideas. In 1955, the production of chests of drawers, mirrors and accountant furniture began. The furniture designed by Kai Kristiansen. In the following years, the furniture factory grew and gained many international customers. In 1973, we started working with the architects Ebbe Gehl and Søren Nissen. In 1989, carpenter Jørgen Kjersgaard, 2nd generation, became master cabinetmaker of the company and has been the owner of the company since 1992. In 1992, we launched a Shaker line in cherry wood designed by Ebbe Gehl and Søren Nissen, which later became the starting point for the Naver Collection.

Designer Ebbe Gehl

"The joy of working with wood, seeing the possibilities in the material and giving it function and form, is challenging and incredibly inspiring and the whole basis for creating unique, beautiful and modern furniture. We are constantly working on the development of new designs, and it is in the close collaboration with master cabinetmaker Jørgen Kjersgaard and the company's skilled cabinetmakers, that we have been able to develop the best and most exciting products with many new and unique details. A good product must not only be functional and well-proportioned, but also have its own character and charm" says Ebbe Gehl.
