The company KARUP was founded in 1972 by the entrepreneur Preben Christensen. Packed with ideas of how to change the way of producing furniture, he started out in an old farm house. As one of the first producers in Europe of knock-down furniture, the business grew rapidly, and soon he had to find new and more efficient locations for the factory. The production was relocated to the city of Karup, right in the centre of Denmark.
In beginning of the 80’s, Preben discovered the Hippie-type futon frame in America, and believed there was also a marked for this type of furniture in Europe, and that’s how the first series-production of futon frames came alive in Europe.
Today, second generation of the family has taken over the management of the company. Some values, how ever, remain sacred to our company. Our product development, which by the way is still lead by the founder, Preben, is still devoted to the space-saving concept. The main-production of the frames remain at factories in Denmark and Estonia, which makes it so much easier to meet the ethical code of conduct of our company ;-)
Our furniture are sold across the globe. Whether you live in Europe, Japan, Singapore, Middle East or the States, we will be able to find you a dealer in your area.
