- Trine Andersen
Rooted in Denmark, Ferm Living draws upon Scandinavian design traditions to design and manufacture objects with a distinctive graphic edge. Trine Andersen started the company as a graphic design studio, soon expanding into wallpaper. The range has since expanded to include textiles, decorative objects, and kitchen products in materials such as organic cotton, recycled paper, leather, wood, porcelain, and metals.
The name “Ferm” was inspired by the founder’s grandmother. “When she said that someone was ferm på fingrene—skilled with their hands, literally “good with their fingers”—it was high praise indeed,” explains Andersen. “I like to think that she would approve of the Ferm Living range—it is modern, but also has a reassuring, home-like quality, and we try to make sure that every piece is made well.”
