‘Fredericia began as a thoroughly Danish design house, born of a proud heritage. A heritage of unfaltering dedication to the perfection and progression of the design craft.‘
The company was established in 1911 as Fredericia Stolefabrik (Fredericia Chair Factory), by entrepreneur N. P. Ravnsø. From its beginning, the company wanted to be known for having only products of an an extremely high quality, so only the most skilled craftsmen worked for the company– something that quickly lead Fredericia Stolefabrik to become known for its high quality furniture in different styles.
‘It is of great importance that the things we purchase and live with, do not need to be changed but instead grow old with dignity and charm’. – Andreas Graversen, Managing Director of FREDERICIA, 1955-1995
Fredericia has a friendly environmental policy, being concern about the sustainability of the environment. The company produces furniture that is made to last, but not only this. The life-time and the quality of the pieces are a priority, but the environmental impact it is also a concern for them.

The brand has collaborations with international designers, all known for their design integrity. ‘I want to reinstate everyday forms, simple and accurate’- Auélien Barbry, designer of the ‘Barbry Collection’
The Barbry Collection is a series of barstools and side tables. The pieces are created from sections of bended steel frames in three sizes, that are combined to form the bases. Consequently, in the barstool footrests of different heights are created where two frames meet. Then, by combining frames of identical size, the design concept is continued to create bases for sides tables of different heights.
