Our Story

Our Idea

A smart alternative for city-dwellers

Life in the city is ever-evolving. It’s made up of endless stories. We move, we make, we love. There’s a modular nature to this lifestyle. Yet most furniture is static. We believe it’s time to re-think furniture.

We design for now and for tomorrow. Thoughtful pieces of furniture for the urban lifestyle. The kind of pieces that live and change with you as your life evolves into new spaces and places: Modular furniture for modular people. 

Our collections are designed in collaboration with leading designers and made in the world’s finest furniture workshops to make sure each piece will stand the test of time.

Debunking the price myth

When you buy luxury furniture less than 25% of what you pay is typically used to make the product.

A significant proportion goes into traditional sales and delivery methods. Not the quality. To get the best in furniture, it’s simply a reality you’ve had to accept. Or if it’s affordability you want, there’s a compromise on quality.

At CIVIL, there are no corners cut. We invest the same in quality as the traditional luxury brands. Instead we sell our collections exclusively through our online store and pop-up spaces.

We're persistent in our pursuit to make the best in furniture more accessible. You’ll never foot the bill for importers, distributors, retailers, showrooms, sales personnel or other middlemen.

Smart luxury for the design conscious city-dweller.

A Few Words From Our Founder

Both my grandfathers started making furniture in Norway in the 1950s. As a child, I’d spend hours by my grandfathers’ sides in their workshops. Watching as raw materials were magically crafted into beautiful pieces of furniture. It gave me an eye for genuine craftsmanship at a young age.

My grandfathers had a simple focus: unbeatable quality. A staple of Nordic design. My paternal grandfather’s workshop grew into the leading Scandinavian manufacturer of furniture for towns, parks and outdoor public spaces. Creating social meeting places for millions of people.

These early experiences sparked a passion for beautiful furniture. For building a company that makes a difference. We combine this legacy of fine furniture making with the functionality that the urban lifestyle calls for.

I hope our furniture brings a civil state of mind to your dynamic city life.

Kristoffer Vestre, Founder
