About

A Maker Brand With an Interesting History

LOPFURNITURE produces and markets furniture designed by LUND & PAARMANN.

Behind LOPFURNITURE you will find the very same persons, that is Oluf Lund and Eva Paarmann.
LOPFURNITURE hunts the good ideas - without glancing at trends, common sense and market movements.
LOPFURNITURE is fantasy and innovation, but we are quite "old-school" when it comes to prioritizing craftmanship, quality and service to the highest degree.
All our designs are produced in Denmark - at Oluf 's old sawmill, Naarup Savværk.

Oluf is the 4th generation of the ”sawmill family”.
It all started in 1876 when Oluf's great grandfather, Hans Hansen, bought the property by the little river. He dammed the river and built a water wheel to power a grain mill. There was, however, more power in the creek than he needed for his grain mill so in 1896 he decided to establish a sawmill and he set up a big logsaw. That logsaw is still here and is used frequently. There was a great demand for lumber and the sawmill grew. Hans' son, Oluf Hansen, took over the sawmill in 1907 after returning from Russia where he had worked in the sawmill business.

Oluf Hansen installed a steam engine to supplement the waterwheel and the sawmill developed into a big and important business in the local community.

A lot of lumber was cut out of logs, hauled in by two teams of horses from the local forest in Krengerup and Hesbjerg.

In 1937, Hans and Jens Hansen – Oluf Lund's uncles – took over what was then a large and well trimmed business with 12 employed men.
The increasing demand for lumber also called for more power so they installed a big diesel engine, which along with the steam engine from 1910 is still present at the sawmill.

Hans and Jens Hansen never changed much as they ran the sawmill until 1997 when Hans Hansen died.

Therefore the mill, Oluf Lund took over in 1998, was like taken out of the 1930s, and it offers an interesting glance into the past.
Now the aim is to maintain the mill and present it as a unique piece of industrial history with the old machines in the old surroundings.
The core in Oluf Lund's activity has since 1978 been furniture design and production. Oluf is a skilled carpenter and he has a degree from the School of Architecture in Aarhus specializing in furniture.
