Furniture design classics producer Carl Hansen & Søn has this week opened a first UK showroom.

The Danish company — which produces designs spanning upholstered to cabinet furniture from well-known Scandinavian designers of the past century — has taken a three-storey space at 16A Bowling Green Lane in London.

It has opened the showroom to coincide with Clerkenwell Design Week, and joins other flagship showrooms in selected cities worldwide.

Carl Hansen & Søn sells mainly in the UK through third-party stockists nationwide, and in London through retailers including Geoffrey Drayton, Conran Shop, Skandium and Chaplins.
