Danish craftsmanship since 1902
Bernh. Pedersen & Son is a family owned furniture maker with a strong tradition in high quality cabinetmaking since the company’s start in 1902. Today, fourth generation in the family, Thomas Bernhard Pedersen is focusing on an exclusive selection of the company’s most exquisite sideboards designed by Danish furniture designers, including the world-renowned architect Johannes Andersen. Every piece of furniture is made in Denmark by skilled cabinetmakers and in keeping with the strong Danish craft traditions.

Classic Danish design
The period 1950 – 1970 in particular was characterized by some of the most stunning and well-executed pieces in Bernh. Pedersen & Son’s history. Especially the classic mid-century sideboards designed by Danish furniture designers, including the world-renowned architect Johannes Andersen, were – and still are – highly valued by customers worldwide. Today, fourth generation in the family, Thomas Bernhard Pedersen is leading the company forward by focusing exclusively on relaunching some of the exquisite sideboards designed in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Model 142 with perfect lines, seamless tambour doors and dovetail pull-out trays is the first piece being launched.

Made in Denmark
Every piece of furniture is made in the same factory built by the Bernh. Pedersen family in 1902, located in a small community in the Danish countryside. The workshop and its skilled cabinetmakers are known for their exquisite and dedicated work based on strong Danish craft traditions; traditions recognized around the world for timeless design, high quality craftsmanship and outstanding longevity. Unique techniques, special tools and original machinery are maintained and used to produce the sideboards in keeping with the first original pieces. The sum of it all is captured in the phrase: Made in Denmark.
