Handmade futons since 1972


Karup Design is a combination of minimalistic Scandinavian design and Japanese futon essence in a core, mainly space saving futon furniture for small, unconventional living spaces.

A piece of furniture with personality – funky, unique, colorful and at the same flexible and reliable, outstanding combination of good design and high quality.

All products are made with love, solid wood frames from Scandinavian forests and exceptionally handmade futons that always have high-quality fillings. Always. Karup knows that it is the filling that determines the durability and level of comfort of futon furniture, and that is why it never compromises.



One sofa bed, one bed and two ‘storage & more’-products.


Four magical products have been added to the Karup Design collection.


Karup Design is all about living. About making room for more. In less space.
