A natural way of thinking
The parish of Horreds lies to the south of Gothenburg near the west coast of Sweden covering 153 hectares of land, which is a beautiful patchwork of lakes, meadows, arable land and forests. Here, nature and the countryside are part of everyday life.
Close to our hearts
Our surroundings have naturally influenced us and our way of thinking when we make furniture. Words like “local” and “long-term” have been embedded in our company’s culture since its inception in 1936. Generations of styles and material trends have come and gone, but our foundation remains the same. We are still crafting furniture to last a lifetime and make a strong impression, yet have as little impact on our natural environment as possible.
All our furniture comes with a ten-year guarantee but has a much longer life time than that. So if you want to make some changes over the year,without buying a new item or furniter, you can ask us to replace a table top, re-varnish some doors or perform some other transformation.
We manufacture bespoke items, which means minimal waste and imact on the environment. For the same reason, we only use green electricity, produced within a 10-kilometer radius of Horreds. Our company holds accreditation to the ISO 9001: 2008 standard and most of our products bear the Nordic Ecolabel and Möbelfakta label; three fundamental pillars for our company. We want to manufacture our furniture with pride.
Just as we have always done.
Horreds is ISO 9001:2015 certified and the majority of our products are labeled with the Swan and Möbelfakta, which are three very important cornerstones for us. Our strong and natural commitment to sustainable development goes all the way back to our start in 1936. We work in line with the UN Agenda 2030 and focus on areas that are relevant to us. This is part of our commitment to contribute to a more sustainable future.
Our local area, in the middle of the Halland countryside, influences us and our approach to furniture manufacturing. Concepts like “local” and “long-term” have been deeply rooted in our corporate culture since the beginning. Our mission is to create furniture that lasts and serves a lifelong purpose.
We aim to design products that make an impact while minimizing our impact on nature.
We only use green electricity from hydropower plants produced within a 10 kilometer radius of Horred. The wood waste we generate is reused as energy in our district heating plant, which heats schools, retirement homes, health centers, apartments and houses in Horred. In this way, we can reduce our environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable local community development. By utilizing local recycling and renewable energy, we strive to create a positive impact on our surroundings and reduce our carbon footprint.
Therefore, Horred’s furniture is the obvious environmental choice.
