Thomas Dinesen doesn’t shy from tradition. He’s the fourth-generation owner of Dinesen, a Danish company that has been specializing in custom wood floors since 1898. In 2004, Thomas and his wife, Heidi, bought a historic Danish longhouse in southern Jutland with the intention of returning it to its former glory. They called on architect Jørgen Overby, a seasoned restorer, to help them reclaim the home’s original character, which, as the architect explains, had been lost over time due to unfortunate interventions. The interior was updated for a “historic minimalism” look, as the owners say. Here’s a look.
N.B.: The house is the former residence of the Dinesen family and is being converted into the Dinesen Country Home, which will be an exclusive guest house for the company.
