Dyrlund places great emphasis on skilled craftsmanship and experienced employees who work in the old craftsmanship style. “Many of our products are made with precious woods and require expert hand finishing, so we have to be sure we have the right man for the job. Skilled cabinetmakers are the most valuable asset in our company.” explains Mr. Jørgensen. He is deeply involved in the design and production of all the series. “Our designs grow out of the workshop as prototypes – we work directly with the raw material, which gives you a real feel for the possibilities and lets you get straight to the business of making a functional piece of furniture. “Not surprisingly, Jørgensen is just as likely to be found in the factory working on details of a cabinet corner as in his offices, meeting with an important client.
Using only traditional Danish cabinet-making methods from start to finish is Dyrlund’s policy. “We are especially proud of the oil finishes we use on our home furniture” says Jørgensen. Besides the beautiful appearance it gives the wood, the finish is also practical. Minor surface repairs, such as small scratches, can easily be repaired by the owner instead of having to call in an expert or taking the furniture to a workshop.
Dyrlund’s production concentrates on two main areas; home furniture and executive office furniture. Common to all their models is practicality, solid construction, detailing to perfection, and classic design. Because of the special care taken with the finish, all pieces grow more beautiful with time, becoming, as dyrlund boasts, “the antiques of tomorrow.”
