Wendelbo: Handcrafted Scandinavian Furniture For Modern Tastes
Wendelbo, an international furniture and design company with Danish roots, follows in the footsteps of the Scandinavian design tradition known for its superior craftsmanship and timeless style.
The history of the family business dates back to 1955 – the year Wendelbo’s founder Tage Petersen opened a small furniture workshop on a street corner in Aarhus, Denmark. In the spirit of continuity, after the production facility moved to Vietnam, the company’s headquarters remained in Aarhus, keeping Wendelbo’s roots firmly planted in Denmark.

Building a legacy
Over the next six decades, the family business was nurtured and grown by Tage Petersen’s descendants. Each consecutive generation brought in a fresh perspective, gradually turning a small furniture workshop into an international success story.
What has remained unchanged for six decades are the values the family credits the company's success to: focusing on the work environment and sustainability and never compromising on quality.

Strong craft tradition
Wendelbo has nurtured a Scandinavian craftsmanship tradition across three generations and given life to innovative and classic designs, set in a modern and contemporary context.
From the very start, Wendelbo´s vision was to develop and produce furniture with a strong visual identity, optimal function and comfort – all the while with an eye for the small details that make a big difference.
Wendelbo´s product palette appeals to both private homeowners and businesses. For businesses, the emphasis is usually on a strong and striking signature piece, an international expression and long-lasting solutions.

For a private home, where style and trends need to be balanced against function and comfort, Wendelbo offers furniture with character while being effortlessly comfortable.
Wendelbo is driven by a strong passion for design and by a conviction that a long-lasting aesthetic is the best path to sustainability.
Designs for the future
Today, Wendelbo´s collections are sold in 60 countries across 6 continents, shipped out of the company's 18.000-sqm facility in Vietnam – a number that is constantly growing as the company is expanding its global network of retail partners and dealers.
Underpinning the expansion are the Wendelbo family values and their passion for producing timeless furniture based on the principles of good design, optimal functionality and high quality.
