About Hammel

Since 1961, Hammel Furniture has manufactured furniture based on proud Danish craftsmanship traditions. Production takes place at our factories in Hammel (central Jutland) and Skærbæk (southern Jutland). In Hammel, the factory manufactures dining tables, coffee tables and shelving (including the well-known Mistral shelving, which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021). The factory in Skærbæk, which joined the Hammel family in 2018, has been manufacturing beautiful dining tables and lounge chairs since 1946.


Hammel Furniture’s mission is to contribute to a life in harmony.  The furniture factory manufactures furniture that lasts a lifetime. Timeless furniture with a twist. Furniture that can be composed to create harmony in the home, and which can be adapted depending on which stage of life you’re at. Furniture that lasts for years.
All Hammel furniture is manufactured in Denmark, and sustainably wherever possible.
It epitomises harmony.



At Hammel we strive to contribute to more harmony both internally among our colleagues and externally with our partners. We are on a journey where we want to grow, but in a harmonious way. It requires common values that are defined from within - a strong culture that is passed on to new colleagues, suppliers and customers. Hammel has therefore been through a process where we have had a taste of the DNA of Hammel together, discussed in smaller and larger internal forums, drawn, told, laughed and assessed. All these discussions have resulted in 3 values which are Hammel’s very own DNA, born of own employees:

We are decent

  • Adheres with agreements
  • Long-term and proactive relations
  • Quality is key
  • Facts rather than emotions

We are open towards:

  • Tasks
  • People
  • Opportunities
  • Change

We stand together and are:

  • Ambitious
  • Brave
  • Strong-willed
  • Helpful
  • Proud
