Short of Karl Andersson & Söner
" to produce genuine good quality furniture " was the concept of the cabinet-maker Karl Andersson, when he started his company in 1898. This is still an important part of our company profile. Karl Andersson & Söner is a well-known family company, which produces furniture for contract and private markets. We cooperate with Scandinavien designers and export to big parts of Europe, USA and Japan.
The furniture is made of veneered blockboard, which we produce ourselves. Our cabinet-makers have excellent knowledge about wood and feel very strongly for their jobs. We are convinced that you will sense that in our furniture.
A piece of furniture from Karl Andersson & Söner should be beautiful and functional, fit in varied habitats and give a feeling of sober elegance.
