Our history began in 1953, when Börje Johanson came up with the idea to sew cushions, and then began a company. Through the years, we have reached an international audience by focusing on Scandinavian design and sterling furniture craftsmanship. Public spaces worldwide are our home territory.
We are expanding our collections in close collaboration with some of Europe’s foremost furniture designers. Their ideas combined with our handicraft tradition from Småland imbue our products with a truly special style and feel.
Virtually all of our production takes place in our modern production plants in Markaryd. As a result, we have total control over frame manufacturing, cutting, sewing, upholstery, assembly and metalwork. We also oﬀer an enormous selection of upholstery designsand 399 diﬀerent RAL colours for our furniture’s metal parts. Together, this gives our customers wide freedom of choice, short delivery times, and most importantly, high quality.
Quality and environment are essential key words for us. That is why our company is certiﬁed according to ISO 14001, our products are Nordic Ecolabelled, and the criteria for Möbelfakta are fulﬁlled. We also meet the highest EU standards for testing and durability in public spaces. Soundabsorbing qualities are tested according to EU standards and all of our products are tested for durability by the RISE Research Institute of Sweden AB.
Today, Johanson is an international company with 60 employees and annual sales of SEK 170 million. Our timeless Scandinavian designs are in high demand worldwide, and we have faithful customers in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Our goal is to grow while maintaining quality and delivery performance – with the same dedication and service that we give our customers today.
