The history behind ferm LIVING

ferm LIVING is a Danish interior company that aims at designing and manufacturing interior products with a graphic touch. The product range consists of wallpaper, WallStickers, textiles, kitchen items, a large KIDS collection and much more great stuff to come.

ferm LIVING originates from a graphic design agency in Aarhus, Denmark, founded by Trine Andersen in 2005. The company came to life after Trine, mostly for fun, decided to visit a clairvoyant. Trine was quite astonished when the clairvoyand saw a little bird sitting confused on a branch, not knowing which way to fly. This sight was essential for Trine’s decision to follow her dream of starting her own business. When she then founded ferm, the little bird found knew exactly where to go and now sits on top of the company logo.

The company went from being a graphic design agency to a company designs and selling lifestyle products when Trine was re-decoration her house. She was looking for graphic wallpaper, but just couldn’t find the right pattern – and when she found it, it was way too expensive. Trine decided, that other people probably felt the same way, so she decided to take it upon herself to create graphic wallpaper patterns at an affordable price.

By February 2006, the very first wallpaper collection hit the streets, and since then things have been going fast! ferm LIVING now operates in many markets around the world and has agents/distributors in Australia, USA, Finland, The Netherlands, UK, Spain, France, Italy, Sweden and Japan.

Statement by Trine Andersen:

Wallpaper is like fashion for your home

Favourite objects from different ferm LIVING collections

I’ve had many favourite items the last couple of years, but some just stay in my head and whenever I think og ferm LIVING I think of these things.



KIDS collection

Over the years, I’ve bought quite a few things for my kids from their collections. I love decorating their room with these delicious products. I still got a few things on my to-by-list, but it’ll have to wait till they get separate rooms.

For the ideal office space

Clip boards have become kind of a must-have if you like decorating just a little bit. I find them very useful, and very decorative. Remember the Susanna Vento post a few days ago. Now that was an amazing use of clip boards. Soon I’ll be re-arranging my home office, and I’m pretty sure a clip board or two will find their way to our apartment.

For the living room

I love the big collection of cushions. If you can’t fine one you like in Trine’s collection, I don’t think you’ll find one anywhere.

If you haven’t had enough of Trine Andersen and ferm LIVING, you I’ll enjoy my next post. I’ll show you how she lives. You’ll see how she uses her own design i different rooms in her house.
