Great Danes: Danish Design by BoConcept

Hong Kong has long had a love affair with Scandinavian design. Its simple lines, use of natural materials and flexible forms seem to be tailor-made for the city’s small spaces. 

It is no wonder Danish brand BoConcept has been a popular choice for those wanting to inject furnishings with flair and practicality into their décor. Established in 1952 by Danish craftsmen Jens Ærthøj Jensen and Tage Mølholm, the company quickly grew from cabinets to encompass dining room furnishings, wall units and much more.

Along with newly launched pieces for some cosy home-time in the fall, BoConcept’s range of accessories and lighting will transport you to the calm serenity of a northern clime.



Inspired by the energy of the Big Apple, the Hampton sofa was designed by Henrik Pedersen to be big and comfortable with the dynamic quality of Manhattan. The modular sofa can be customised to suit different spatial configurations, and features a low base, adjustable back cushions and built-in storage into the arms or ottoman.



One of BoConcept’s most popular rugs, Neat, is easy to clean and its highly textural quality and multitude of colours complement many décor schemes.



A great way to add a focal point to the room is by including the curving Kuta floor lamp. It is available in different colours, including black and brass finishes, and gives off a warm ambience that makes it perfect for reading or candid conversations.



For those who love to entertain, the Milano table quickly and quietly stretches from a compact table for four to fit up to eight people.

With a secret bi-folding central leaf that slots comfortably into the base, Milano has streamlined and elegant good looks. It features leather handles, a one-handed open and shut design, and tapering edges for a sense of timelessness.



Pair Milano with some Adelaide chairs and dine in style. With its one-piece seat and back, Adelaide’s organic lines align with the body’s proportions for effortless comfort. It is available with or without arms, on a wooden base of four legs or on a central base with a swivel function, as well as a lightweight version that can be used outside.



What better way to create a floral centrepiece for the table than with a ceramic vase? Part of BoConcept’s new collection, the vase comes in a bowl or cup shape, with an upper plate to help retain the arrangement’s shape.



Sweet dreams are made of slumbering on a Mezzo bed. The upholstered headboard is an ideal height for some bedside reading, and the base includes a built-in compartment handy for extra storage.



For those who prefer to read in a proper chair, sink into the Athena recliner. The high-back upholstered chair was designed by Frans Schrofer for BoConcept’s fall collection, with a light, contemporary breeziness on a swivel base. It comes with a matching ottoman.
