New Scandinavian Flatpack Furniture Line Offers Glam Ikea Alternative

Gorgeous, clean-lines and plush upholstery, some assembly required

Though Ikea may have the flatpack furniture game locked down, another Scandinavian company is jumping into the action on that front: At Milan Design Week earlier this month, Danish brand Normann Copenhagen announced a new line of self-assembled flatpack furnishings.

The collection, called "Ace," and designed in collaboration by Danish designer Hans Hornemann, includes lounge chairs and sofas with bent plywood frames upholstered in a variety of fabrics and leathers, as well as a dining table and a footstool. Norman Copenhagen says each item of furniture in the collection can be put together "in minutes" and images of the components of each seat—like the one seen below—seem to support that claim.

No word yet on when the line will be available to consumers in the U.S., but we will keep you updated. Meanwhile, you can take a look at the full catalog here.

Fellow Danish brand HAY also debuted a line of flatpack seating at Milan Design Week, created with French frères Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec, which are also available now for shipment to the U.S.
