    Vendor Info

    Life along the elongated Norwegian coast was tough in the 1940s. Located between deep fjords and majestic mountains the farmers in the small village of Sykkylven started to build furniture in barns or cellars to ensure their own livelihood. The wish to provide more jobs led Sykkylven's Lars Karl Hjelle to start up his own furniture factory in 1940 and found LK Hjelle. Hjelle's aim is to create beautiful, timeless Scandinavian pieces. Being a Norwegian family business producing furniture to an international market requires courage. Maybe even a little heroism. Hjelle's close cooperation with both young Norwegian and international designers has made Hjelle known for innovative furniture design. Despite the scale of theirTheir furniture is still made at their own factory in Sykkylven, Norway.
