When in the 1930s British entrepreneur, C.W.F. France went to Denmark to assist a Danish friend to run a mattress factory and got sent to Germany as a war prisoner as WWII exploded, he got to developed a groundbreaking business plan. A plan that met the world 5 years later when the war ended with his comeback to Denmark throughout the 1950s and 60s.

Then, France started partnerships with the foremost promising Danish furniture designer: Finn Juhl. Together both developed high-quality furniture, in industrial scale and sold flat-packed. Changing the furniture business game forever by getting to export several pieces of high quality and not overpriced furniture. 

The success was set from the beginning. Everyone was getting danish pieces from all over the world.

New styles feature on his creations, like shining steel frames and wood feet, were Juhl’s response to the criticism he had received in terms of his artsy sculptural styles and exclusivity.
