A new way of thinking
SOFACOMPANY began in 2012 with the idea of making high-quality Danish design furniture available to all. How did we succeed? By focusing on value, design, high-quality production, customised solutions and the bold vision of a completely sustainable future.
What we’re all about
In 2012 our founders Christian and Cathrine Rudolph set out to challenge the furniture industry. Until then, high-quality design at low prices was hard to come across, and when the prices were in fact low – so was the design aesthetics and the quality of the materials used. Their idea was then to offer high-quality design at fair prices, thus challenging the way we buy design furniture.
How we make it possible
Creating high-quality design at fair prices continues to be our mission affecting everything we do. And for this to come true, we carefully handle all steps in the process and deliver our products directly from our own factory. Such a concept removes any non-value-adding links from the supply chain, breaking down the costs. Controlling the entire production chain furthermore makes us so agile that we can offer customised solutions to fit any surrounding and any need.
We make everywhere
feel like home
The sofa is no longer reserved for the private home only but has become a centrepiece in offices, public spaces and hotels as well, evoking a warm, informal and more homely atmosphere wherever situated. But in a professional setting, one cannot assume a “one size fits all”-approach, which is why our SOFACOMPANY design team is here to help bring your ideas to life through unique customised solutions.
“We chose Vietnam as the place for our production, because it is known for its well-established tradition for furniture making passed down through generations, resulting in an enormous pride that goes into each hand-build piece of furniture.”
To succeed with a concept such as ours, you need a reliable, high-quality production and extremely skilled craftsmen. And all of this, Christian and Cathrine Rudolph found in Vietnam and the Hoang family, who to this day still run the production at our factory, where our furniture is skilfully build by more than 1.000 local craftsmen. But there is more to it than just craftsmanship. Proud of our workforce, we show our utmost gratitude by supporting local establishments such as schools and orphanages.
A sustainable future
We decided to make SOFACOMPANY sustainable and carbon-neutral, inviting us to rethink everything as we go. From furniture parts to materials, transportation, durability and the production itself. From solar power at our factory, support of carbon offset projects and environmental NGO’s to developing new furniture fabric made out of recycled, biodegradable and sustainable materials. But being a sustainable company is a state of flux, and we intend to keep improving in every way possible towards a shared sustainable future.
“A sofa can’t change the world. But it’s our firm belief that every step we take towards a more sustainable future, others will be inspired to follow.” – Henrik Andersen, CEO
