Farstrup Furniture was founded more than 100 years ago in the village of Farstrup, just a stone’s throw from Odense. Having started out as a sawmill in 1910, the production was expanded to include furniture after just a few years, and in 2000 the sawmill closed down. What was once a flourishing business has suffered greatly in the last few years, but with five new owners that is hopefully about to change. “The company needs to be entirely rebranded. It has had a budget deficit for years, and honestly the business was ailing,” says Lyhne-Johansen, co-owner and managing director of Farstrup Furniture. “This is going to be a huge turn-around. It will take some time but we will get there.”
