Rocking Chair by Morten Stenbæk in the making

Introducing a Nordic version of the Rocking Chair in the making
Origin is perhaps the most respected element when it comes to Scandinavian furniture. But what if a Dane take on an all American icon like the Rocking Chair? The great thing about Scandinavian designers and craftsmen are the ability to take an International challenge and create a all Nordic take on a classic. This skilled craftsman did not choose an easy challenge – nevertheless Morten Stenbæk delivered a new take on the Rocking Chair that even turn a passionate all American fan towards the Danish version of this iconic piece of furniture. Every Chair that Morten Stenbaek produces is one of the kind limited editions. We believe in the importance in bridging culture and design and are very happy to promote Mortens beautiful furniture line on Northernmakers. Look for more in the same category here

Welcome to a true furniture craftsman

It’s not every day a true furniture craftsman and Dane decide to make an interpretation on the all american rocking chair. First and foremost because american craft is between the worlds finest, but also because that most don’t like us to mess with tradition and the quality that has been developed over many years. But being part of the strong Scandinavian heritage in furniture design and craft, it is no wonder that Morten took upon himself to make the Scandinavian version of the good old rocking chair. And perhaps because of the legacy it is no wonder that this version came out even better that even the proud americans would have imagine.

Being part of the great traditions of Scandinavian Design and Scandinavian Living made us realize how important it is to present makers to the people around the world who can appreciate some of the more distinguish designers and products available – hence Today it’s not just Scandinavian makers we celebrate but makers and designers from all in the Nordic region.

We are happy to present such a great craftsman to Northernmakers. We strive to collect the greatest designers and craftsman from all of Scandinavia under one roof.

All of which hold proud Scandinavian traditions both in terms of design, product and production.

This latest introduction to a member in the furniture category of Northernmakers just point to the fact that the Nordic region still supplies quality and well thought icons Internationally, all of which makes us passionate to bring more of these skilled people, their brands and beautiful products to the visitors of our web shop.

We can’t all visit the workshop and experience the manmade development at hand. But being the fortunate ones, we love to follow the designs as they unfold and learn to respect the attention to detail. After more than 4 years close to local makers and craftsmen we know how much story there is behind every product and material selected – and we are so proud to bring them to your attention.

We hope you can appreciate the makers that we present here on the platform
