Swedish furniture design conquers the world A conscious and consistent focus on modern, timeless design with clean, Scandinavian lines has made Johanson Design a strong global brand. Working with some of the most highly skilled designers in Sweden and Europe, Johanson Design has created a wide, stylish furniture collection that has focused the attention of architects and interior designers across the world on Markaryd in Småland, southern Sweden, where Johanson Design has been based since the company began back in 1953. Virtually all the manufacturing takes place at Markaryd in a new, modern production plant. Most of the company’s manufacturing is founded on skilled craftsmanship and traditional furniture manufacturing methods. No furniture leaves the premises until the staff, with years of sound furniture expertise under their belt, have checked that the quality is absolutely world class. Johanson Design operates worldwide and in the past five years has exported furniture to an impressive 52 countries.
