WHO WE ARE
Shekåbba was founded in 2019 by Dan and Rosanna Chapman, to celebrate new Danish design and quality. They have always enjoyed the diversity of interior design from across the world and appreciate Denmark's flare for design and sustainable craftsmanship. Seeing Denmark’s style first hand and learning of it's rich design heritage led to their resolute confidence in Danish furniture, they believe that, “Denmark has the world-leading edge on furniture design, craftsmanship and sustainability!”
Today, Shekåbba is the increasingly popular Danish design destination, dedicated to curating contemporary Danish furniture and accessories. Shekåbba co-founder Dan discusses ideas behind the brand,
“Danish furniture excites me and has become a bit of an obsession! It embodies an elegance and quality, the like of which I haven’t seen to the same degree elsewhere in the world. Mark Mussari’s book, Danish Modern, Between Art & Design beautifully highlights the richness of Denmark’s design heritage and it’s vast influence on the world stage. I love the cultural priority in Denmark of creating stunning spaces in homes and workplaces, without compromising on style or quality in the process.”
As a brand Shekåbba exists not only to curate the finest of new Danish design, but as a platform to serve busy, hardworking people. With increasingly pressured lives, it can now be impractical to make long trips to showrooms and shops to find the look you are after. This has shaped the decision for Shekåbba to embrace e-commerce, offering a trusted online promise of quality Danish furniture that is professionally delivered to your room of choice.
Of the furniture that Shekåbba source from Denmark, they are heavily influenced by the words of world-renowned Danish furniture designer - Hans Jørgensen Wegner,
"Regardless of where people come from they cannot stop themselves from letting their hands stroke a piece of wood, hold it, smell it and experience the material".
