The History of Konstsmide

Konstsmide are the manufacturer and distributor of indoor and outdoor lighting. The company was established in 1942 by bus driver Gunnar Johansson who had one clear vision - Start his own company and manufacture plant frames and garden decorations made of wrought iron. Quality and design is and has always has been a focal point for Konstsmide.

The company soon grew and new premises were built in the Gnosjö, Sweden.

Konstsmide At Christmas

The same high standards are carried across to the Christmas lighting ranges which are generally developed in house by their design team. They may not be as well known as IKEA but they have the same thorough attention to planning, style and development. They are often first to show innovative Christmas products, often to find them quickly copied by the competition. Amongst discerning Christmas shoppers this quality control is soon noted. Konstsmide Christmas products bought today will be collectables tomorrow.

By combing a form of spun acrylic, and embedding LEDs which shine through, they can create figures, animals and motifs that look good during the daytime but come to life when the lights go down. As they are LED driven, they can be battery operated orcabled. Either way they are cheap to run.

Polar Bears are not vegetarians so I definitely recommend a Konstsmide Polar Bear over the real thing if you don’t want to be eaten out of house and home. Penguins and seals fall into the same category. Whether you want to create a scene, or just want to bring Santa to life, their range of acrylic figures are the must have accessories this Christmas. There are no small bits to easily get into a child’s mouth but they are impressive enough to make you swallow. Safety is always important when selling Christmas lines and it should be stressed these creatures are not toys, but decorative Christmas figures.

"Of course we believe in Santa Claus." — Konstsmide
