WELCOME

Welcome to our universe.

A universe where Danish personal design and home inspiration at eye level is the focal point.

At DESIGNERS FIRST, will we as the first, help Denmark's newest and most talented designers forward and introduce them to the big designer scene.

It started in the 1950s and 1960s, where Danish designers like Arne Jacobsen and Hans J. Wegner stood in the spotlight with their excellent designs. The characteristics were the Nordic, functional and stylish lines combined with a good and solid Danish craft. Today, we present them as timeless design icons, and as part of our proud design tradition.

At DESIGNERS FIRST, we protect the same values as we stand in the contours of today's design sketches and transform them into a finished product. For Denmark still, have some of the best furniture and interior designers. They need help along the way, so the creative sketches do not stay on the desk, along with unnecessary speculation about production, logistics, sales, branding, and marketing. We take care of them.

With the individual designer as a protagonist, DESIGNERS FIRST contributes with engineering inputs without altering expression, aesthetics, and functionality. We find the right producers together, cut out expensive intermediaries and carry the new personal design all the way to the edge of the stage.

In addition to providing quality and excellent service, we will also assist you with our online magazine, where our skilled stylist, Sanne, continuously updates you with the trends and trends of the time. You will also be able to read exciting articles about the designers, as well as get tips and tricks for the right decor and choice of colors.
