It is 1940. Life along the Norwegian coast is hard. Between deep fjords and majestic mountains lies the small village Sykkylven. Farmers start to build furniture in barns and cellars to provide a livelihood. Among them is Lars Karl Hjelle. He has the desire to create jobs and in the middle of this time he founds his own furniture factory LK Hjelle.

Until today the family business, now in its third generation, produces furniture and sells it internationally. The Hjelle product range includes sofas, armchairs, small chairs and tables. In cooperation with young Norwegian and international designers like Hallgeir Homstvedt or Andersson & Voll, the pieces of Norwegian craftsmanship are created, which claim to be timeless and combine quality and durability.
