Andersen was founded in 1916 by the carpenter I. C. A. Jensen and for more than 100 years has combined traditional craftsmanship with timeless Scandinavian design. Initially a traditional carpentry workshop, Andersen has gradually developed into a producer for furniture designed by architects. In 1978 the brothers Knud and Vagn Andersen bought the company and founded the Brødrene Andersen Møbelsnedkeri, which continued the production of designer furniture. Fourteen years later, the next generation came in the shape of Jørgen Andersen, who took care of marketing and sales, before his younger brother Henrik began to deal with IT and finance, and in 2007 Brødrene Andersen Møbelsnedkeri moved into their new base in Hinnerup, near Aarhus. In 2012, Poul Frandsen joined the management team, and today, together with Jørgen and Henrik, heads the company. Having long since moved beyond their Danish borders, today Andersen sells its furniture, including tables, chairs, sideboards, and shelving throughout Asia and Europe.
