This is how it all began
Our story began in 1942 when the young couple Evy and Jarl Andersson bought a carpenter’s shop in the small village of Kinnarp, Sweden. Since then the business has grown step by step and children and grandchildren have played their part in its development. Evy often called Jarl “the Optimist”. They were driven by the belief that anything, however good, can always be improved a little. An approach that is still deeply rooted in us as a company today. All so that our customers who use our products and solutions will feel a little better. And get a little more done. In a long-term sustainable way.
Today we are a large international interior design company, still characterised by the same genuine curiosity and down-to-earth spirit of innovation that drove our founders.
Kinnarps delivers interior design solutions for offices, schools and healthcare facilities. The entire value chain is characterised by high quality and low environmental impact – from raw materials to finished workplace solutions.
