The Danish design duo behind Lumière Bricoleur has curated an airy Copenhagen penthouse where the country’s furniture icons brush shoulders with emerging designer pieces. Featuring the likes of Børge Morgensen’s Hunting Chair and Hans Wegner’s Y-Chair—alongside whimsical pieces such as Sabine Marcelis and Brit van Nerven’s off-round Hue mirror—the 2,000-square-foot interior resembles a live-in art installation that is both functional and comfortable.

“Our primary challenge was to create a balance between high aesthetics and the comfort which makes you feel at home,” says Lumière Bricoleur co-founder Nikoline Henningsen, who juxtaposed tactile materials like ceramics and wood with a more polished aesthetic. “The end result is a dreamy oasis, where substance, sustainability, and considered compositions set the stage.”
