When Henriette Bach, founder of Nordstjerne, back in 2012 as one of the first designers launched marble at Danish interior fairs, customers were attracted to the smooth and elegant material – but didn’t really dare to order it. That all soon changed and today Nordstjerne is not only known to be a pioneer in marble but the latest collections include several other materials including solid brass and coloured suede. The trendy design and genuine materials has caught the attention of bloggers, trendsetters and design lovers around the globe and today the business has spread to more than 30 countries worldwide.
Henriette frequently visits Nordstjerne's suppliers in India and other places to ensure that all products are of the highest quality and that the people producing Nordstjerne's products have acceptable working conditions. "We prefer long term relationships with our suppliers in order to maintain our high level of quality." Actually, even though the weekly shipping counts more than hundreds of boxes, jars, vases etc. around the world, every item is still personally inspected by Henriette and her colleagues before it leaves the warehouse north of Copenhagen.
