Stouby, the story of 100 years in Danish modern furniture:
It all began back in 1902 in a small Danish village, aptly named Stouby, with twenty pounds, half a leather hide, a chaise lounge frame, and some linen. That was all Stouby founder, Marius J. Blirup needed to take the first step. And despite the humble conditions and few capital resources, the furniture manufacturer’s desire to create was great. And Marius Blirup quickly established himself as a frequent exhibitor at “Købestævne” – the renowned international exhibition of the time.
A family tale: In 1944 son in law Børge Hansen took over and the family business continued. The company grew, and Stouby furniture was exported to all corners of the world, Austria, England, Kuwait, and the USA. In 1965 The New York Times praised Stoubys chair nr.13 for its sublime functionality and not least the exclusive design. And that same year, Børge Hansen states that: “I started out running a business. Now the business is running me.”
