So, clearly, you are a busy guy these days...
That’s right. Besides Handcraftedcph, I also own three shops around the city that deal in vintage furniture and Danish Design pieces. Work is a huge part of my life but, I have to say, for the most part I love what I do. I enjoy that each day for me is different.
Speaking of that, how would you describe a ‘normal’ day in the life of Handcraftedcph?
A ‘normal’ day has a bit of everything around here: a mix of customers and clients, working with my hands, as well as taking care of a lot of repetitive tasks that just need to get done. Honestly, I spend a lot of my day communicating - either face to face or via email, so I’m using people skills a lot, which makes life and work really interesting. Everyday is full, it's never boring.
So, no time for coffee breaks then?
There’s always time for coffee. In fact, I try to make a point everyday to go out of the workshop or showroom and take a coffee break at a café or meet up with a friend. Even meeting up for five or tens minutes is totally worth it. That little bit of distance from work always refreshes me and gives me a creative boost. Besides, I love experiencing Copenhagen by walking around, I try to get out and about in the city a little bit each day.
Hard for you to sit still is it?
Yeah, you could say that.
