Black-on-black leather and veneer bring a sybaritic air to Ferm Living’s capacious lounge chair. Herman has low contours with a generous oval seat and a great sweep of curved backrest to comfortably nestle into. The painted back and aniline leather upholstered seat meld seamlessly with the base in powder-coated metal.

Graphic designer Trine Andersen got inspired one day when she was looking for wallpaper and the choices were dull and too expensive. Figuring other people probably felt the same way, she decided to create it herself. And Danish design company Ferm Living was the result, growing to include home accessories, linens, lighting and furniture for both grown-ups and little ones. “Our biggest ambition and desire is to inspire people to create the kind of space that makes them feel comfortable at home,” Trine says. A home is much more than just beautiful things. We believe it’s a place intimately tied to our emotions, values, and way of thinking.”
With a Nordic style that references the design heritage of the ’50s and ’60s, Ferm Living also offers bolder statement pieces—items that are more colorful and rich. “When you mix these styles, the bolder pieces give energy to the calmer ones,” Trine says. “I love to mix it up. It’s not about being just clean and Scandinavian. We love to add some sparkle!”
