Meet Knud Erik Hansen of Carl Hansen & Søn in His Family’s Danish Home

Most architecture and interior books show houses polished to perfection, manicured to the extent that it is hard to imagine anybody actualize lives there: they seem to miss the point that homes are meant to be inhabited. Our recent release The Monocle Guide Cosy Homes tells us how to turn a house into a home in which lives can unfold, children grow up, and dogs run wild.

In the first of two films to celebrate the publication of The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes, we visit the residence of Knud Erik Hansen, managing director of Carl Hansen & Søn and grandson of the company’s iconic founder. Hansen has transformed an impressive Danish estate into a comfortable family home, filling it with beautiful furniture and preserving the property’s charm.

The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes is available at Gestalten Pavillion, Gestalten Space, and the Gestalten online shop.
