Havila Voyages is to outfit its four new ships with furniture produced by several Norwegian companies.

Chairs and sofas on the new ships will be provided by Brunstad, Fora Form and Ekornes, while passengers and crew will sleep on mattresses from Recticel. All public areas, cafes and restaurants will be outfitted with chairs from these furniture manufactuers, all of which are based on the west coast of Norway.

“We want to show the best Norway has to offer also when it comes to furniture and interior,” said Arild Myrvoll, CEO of Havila Voyages. “This is quality furniture that provides a high degree of comfort for our passengers. It has also been important for us to use furniture from local suppliers, located within a short distance from the coastal route’s ports of call, to make it practical, easy and sustainable also when it comes to service and delivery.”

Also involved in the construction project for the vessels is Norwegian Marine Interior (NMI). Working in collaboration with Danish architects Steen Friis Design, the company has planned, designed, and will deliver and install the furniture and interiors for the four new ships.

“It has been both rewarding and exciting to take part in the construction of such large and brand new passenger ships with the clear message of providing the passengers with both a safe and comfortable trip, as well as reflecting the Norwegian scenery and using Norwegian suppliers,” said Sigurd Viseth, general manager at NMI.
