Nordophile was in search of Scandinavian modern furniture to showcase to you something which wasn’t on the cusp of extortionate, nor for it to be one of the masses, which adorn the homes of a majority of Scandinavian furniture searching Nordophiles.
So we were delighted to find in the depths of Hackney, East London, Chase & Sorensen. Created by duo Brent Chase and Signe Sorensen who have realised that the middle of these two extremes is a realistic need for customers, when in search of Scandinavian wares, for their home.
In the midst of very high interest in all Nordic genres, this established shop is the place to come to, whether by foot or internet.
Scandinavian luxury needn’t be out of reach. From the 1940’s to the New Nordic, Chase & Sorensen is bringing to this retro part of London a different slice of Scandinavia to indulge in.
CHASE & SORENSEN is a contemporary and mid 20th century Scandinavian modern furniture and home décor retailer. Founded in 2010 by American/Danish duo Brent Chase and Signe Sorensen and based in Hackney, East London, their mission is to offer a sensible alternative to the prohibitively expensive vintage furniture stores dotted across London as well as the low-quality, flat-packed, identikit furniture retailers.
Chase & Sorensen initially began trading in August 2010 with a successful stall in London’s iconic Brick Lane weekend market and an online store at chaseandsorensen.com In September 2011 the company opened it’s doors to their showroom in the heart of Hackney, offering up all of the quality design pieces they had garnered a reputation for. Prices are kept competitive by eliminating the middleman in the stock sourcing process as the owners make monthly trips to Denmark where they handpick the entire inventory. All items are carefully selected for their keeping with the Scandinavian modern design aesthetic and not simply for the designer name attached.
Chase & Sorensen has a mixed offering of 20th-century furniture and home décor. The ever-changing collection includes a variety of reasonably priced sofas, lounge chairs, dining sets and storage units, through to lighting, ceramics and art.
All items in-store generally date from the 1940s to the 1970s and typically hail from Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Contemporary Scandinavian design Chase & Sorensen also stocks a growing range of modern design from Scandinavia. Established brands such as Royal Copenhagen and ArchitectMade are available alongside smaller indie brands such as FramaCPH, H Skjalm P and Zweed. Their collection of contemporary design continues to grow rapidly location summary set in East London’s Hackney Downs area,
CHASE & SORENSEN is centrally located between Dalston, London Fields and Clapton. The location is also easily accessed via public transport (multiple bus and overground train links minutes away).
