The furniture factory was founded by Niels father, Einar Koefoed in the 1920s. The city of Hornslet boasted three furniture makers at the end of the 20th century, each specialized in different areas of the design industry: upscale furniture, upholstery and cabinets. Koefoeds Hornslet was involved in the production of the first – elegant furniture. In 1964, Koefoed designed the modernist Eva chair, which had three vertical slats on the backrest, and was manufactured by Koefoeds in teak or rosewood. Eventually, the rosewood was withdrawn and replaced with cherry.
