The versus story…..   Our background – our strength….   Versus – craftsmanship…..   The details…..
Versus is a design company based in Denmark - a country world famous for its clean uncompromising aesthetics in both architecture and furniture design.

Founded in 2010 by Peter Barreth and Henrik Lerche.

Strong roots in traditional construction techniques and craftsmanship, our style has evolved into a niche of its own, interpreting previous design aesthetics from the 1950´s and 60´s and renewing them to fit a modern lifestyle.

Versus design and produce high-end contemporary furniture with versus identity – using tough lasting materials aiming for a strong price point.


Peter is a third generation upholsterer crafted in old school techniques with several years experience from traditional upholstery work, product development, production and design.
Henrik is educated in commerce and trade with experience in purchase, design, administration, management and also owner of an upholstery production unit in Denmark.

Between us we have over 30 years experience in design – and development of upholstery furniture, construction techniques, materials and production.


We work with strong leading fabric suppliers Kvadrat and Gabriel from Denmark, Camira from UK, Mahan from USA and also a young new vibrant company like Febrik.

Our sofa frames are hand build from European plywood and seat frames used are built from solid European pine. Each seat frame is mounted with steel Nosag springs creating the toughest and most durable solution.

We only use Eco-Tex labelled high-density cold cured foam from leading European suppliers. All foam qualities are fire retardant for your safety.

Versus upholstery are hand built in EU and comes with a 5-year warranty.


Each new model is tested in the private homes of the founders.
It is important to know how the upholstery and construction reacts to everyday use.

Shape is important – and comfort is essential.
We include small comfort details into our products. We implement small details that makes a difference, and always detect and correct mistakes by testing intensively before release for your benefit and joy.
