Through our more than 25 years in the industry, we've gained experience and knowledge of how to manufacture products that last. The designs in DAN-FORM Denmark's range are therefore suitable for both residential and contract use.
What we do to maintain a high quality
- Our production team is highly skilled and well trained. Especially for the handsewn stitches on our chairs, we have a dedicated team with many years of experience.
- All products go through a rigid quality control system during and after production, to test strength and quality.
- We only use quality A+B veneers for our bentwood inside and A1 top grade veneer outside.
- All chair shells are Polyurethane lacquered, which is the strongest lacquer available.
- Leather types used in DAN-FORM's production are top grade leather.
How to identify good quality
Furniture from DAN-FORM is known for its high quality. Here are a few general pointers that you can use to understand the level of quality in a piece of furniture.
It is fairly simple to design a chair, but making sure you can sit comfortably in it for long dinners or meetings, is an art in itself.
DAN-FORM's chairs and bar & counter stools are always constructed with superb comfort in mind and we take great pride in ensuring a high comfort.
DAN-FORM’s chairs have either a bentwood base or a metal frame base. Some would argue that the bentwood gives a better seating comfort. But we'll leave that for you to decide. Make sure to test the chair before you buy so you know it has the right comfort.
You should always look at how well a product's finish appears. Are there any rough edges, loose ends of string etc.
Our website offers a zoom function to allow you to clearly see the details and edges of our furniture and discover the great attention to detail that goes into our furniture.
DAN-FORM furniture often has that "little something extra" in the form of a design feature, and many of our designs have handsewn stitching around the rim or decorative stitcing such as baseball stitches in the seat.
Abrasion Resistance (Martindale)
- and other test scores
The higher the quality of the materials used for upholstery of the products, the longer it obviously lasts and the better it will score on the standardised tests.
For residential use in private homes, 25,000 Martindale is more than enough, however for contract use where furniture is subjected to tougher use, at least 50,000 Martindale is required.
DAN-FORM uses fabric and artificial leather with min. 30,000 Martindale - most have 50,000.
You can see the fabric test scores in our Fabric Classification sheet.
