Since 1948

Classic furniture brought back to life

The former company “Møbelintarsia” has been re-established under the name Intarsia Furniture. Møbelintarsia was founded in 1948 by carpenter and furniture designer, Jørgen Aakjær Jørgensen and his wife Lis Aakjær Jørgensen. Together they dedicated their lives to Møbelintarsia, which became a fast-growing family business.

What the couple did not know at the time, was that their granddaughter, Nanna Aakjær Svendsen, almost 75 years later would recreate Møbelintarsia, with the vision of continuing the carpentry legacy from the golden age of danish furniture – combined with today’s trends and traditions.

Intarsia Furniture designs stylish quality furniture that create homes with elegance.

The designer, Jørgen Aakjær Jørgensen

Founder of Møbelintarsia in 1948

Jørgen Aakjær Jørgensen (1920 – 2008) was an old school carpenter and furniture designer. Jørgen received his diploma at the Danish Technological Institute, and was awarded for great work. He later traveled to Sweden, where he specialized in the unique and ancient craft technique, Intarsia, from which the inspiration for the name came.

Furniture in focus

Jørgen Aakjær Jørgensen was a modest man who certainly did not like to be the center of attention. It was his furniture that was in focus, and he wanted them to be perfect. This modesty is the reason why his name was never associated with the furniture, but simply got the production stamp “Møbelintarsia”.

Jørgen Aakjær Jørgensen was a classic craftsman who designed directly from his thoughts to his hands, and was very preoccupied with the craft. Jørgen Aakjær Jørgensen’s design DNA is seen in the many small details, the applied marquetry technique, which was combined with the Danish design tradition, where simplicity and functionality dominated.
