Originally H.Skjalm P. was established as a retail store during 1953 in the historical old town of Copenhagen by Hagbarth Skjalm Petersen and his wife Lisbeth Westergaard.
It wasn’t long before design conscious cafes frequented the store to peruse and purchase the latest trends in textiles, kitchenware and accessories. Hagbarth Skjalm Petersen provided products that were functional but were also innovative. He introduced colours, shapes and graphic expressions that were all new at the time.
The company has since grown and evolved into a recognized design brand. H.Skjalm P. has its own design team who are always mindful of the founder’s philosophy “innovative design made from natural materials of high quality with a Scandinavian look”.
