The history of Danish Homestore
Danish Homestore dates back to 1986 when the first dedicated shop opened it's doors in Wellington St, Leicester.
Founded by Roger Harrison, who had been supplying smaller second-hand dealers, after it was evident there was a hunger for quality Danish furniture. The Leicester shop soon became the go to place for shoppers wanting a different look and quality at a price they could afford.
Since then the whole market for second-hand furniture has changed and what we now know as Vintage was in no small part started by Roger.
Today the shop occupies a large building in the centre of Nottingham after moving there in 1991 and closing the Leicester store.
Roger is still a large part of the business but is no longer travelling to the UK as this role has been taken over by Simon, his son.
The shop is still a go to place for collectors and admirers of vintage Danish furniture from the period 1940s to Modern day as Danish homestore has built a reputation for quality and above all beautiful restored furniture from the likes of Hans Wegner, Illum Wikkelso, Finn Juhl, Niels Koefoed and many many more.
A large shipment arrives from Roger in Denmark to the Nottingham showroom, which has a large workshop, where each piece is cleaned and restored so you can enjoy them in your home.
The website is updated every day so you can be confident that the items you browse online are also available to view in the Nottingham showroom.
Danish Homestore is independent and are NOT listing items on other sites like 1st dibs, pamono, Vinterior etc as the prices I can offer you are much better value!
These other sites charge a large commission without making it clear, YOU pay this HIDDEN charge.
I welcome you in the store where I am always available to help and advise in all aspects of your furniture needs.
I look forward to your visit.
