WHO ARE WE
Warm Nordic is a Danish design brand that embraces the warm, Nordic aesthetics and feeling. With a strong Scandinavian design tradition as a basis, Warm Nordic builds a bridge between past and present, between tradition and renewal.

THE IDEA BEHIND WARM NORDIC
Frantz Longhi, the founder of Warm Nordic, has collected antique Scandinavian designs for many years.
The antique designs were used to furnish his Kähler Design restaurants in Aarhus. Here, many guests showed great interest in the classic designs that were no longer in production.
When Frantz discovered that others saw the beauty and quality of the classic furniture, he could not bear the thought that iconic chairs by Hans Olsen and Knud Færch would only live out their lives at international auctions.
And so an idea began to take shape for Frantz, who then contacted the designers' descendants.
In close cooperation with the designers' families, Warm Nordic today takes care of the design heritage and brings the classic designs into the present.
”Warm Nordic pays tribute to the great Scandinavian furniture architects and designers who appear at international auctions. We lift classic design into the present, combine them with new, curated designs and refine the quality, the warm atmosphere of colors and shapes that express the Nordic design heritage.”
– Frantz Longhi.
a message from
Warm Nordic is a matter of the heart and a passion. For me and many others, the Scandinavian style and way of life is full of warmth. It is anything but 'Cool Nordic', as it is often called. It may be cold outside, but the atmosphere inside is warm. The style is not over-decorated, but with a warm, genuine expression and maybe even fire in the fireplace. It is the style that has made Danish hygge famous throughout the world.
The old masters are united with the best contemporary designers, so Warm Nordic offers both a Classic Collection and a Contemporary Collection. The two collections together make clear the quality of Scandinavian design and its independence from time and generations. With the founding of Warm Nordic, I want to give design lovers, with a penchant for classic Scandinavian interiors, new high-quality choices.
I hope that many will find joy in a fully-cast, curated universe that unfolds the warm and unpretentious atmosphere that characterizes Scandinavian design. We are not cool. We are Warm Nordic.
