Our story

It's no coincidence that the swing has been around for nearly 3,500 years. A classic piece of furniture and toy; loved by children and adults around the world. A product that has stood the test of time, and isn't going out of style anytime soon.

Our story starts in the summer of 2010 when Anton Stenfors, the founder of Lillagunga, had a hard time trying to find a stylish quality swing for his two sons. Anton decided to make one himself and ended up taking the first steps towards designing the first model of Lillagunga Classic.

After an in-depth period of market research, Anton realised that the first prototype was not just the answer to a father's need but addressed a gap in the market for families looking for functional and appealing swings. In 2013, Lillagunga was established with a vision to become the leading producer of reinvented design classics for every home.

The first year of operation totally relied on great market feedback on the Lillagunga Classic, and gradually it became evident that there was room for similar products to complete the product portfolio. In 2013 Lillagunga Classic won the Interior Design Reporters competition aimed at promoting carefully made design products that suit people’s everyday lives.

A year later in 2014, Lillagunga Grand - the swing for grown-up kids and adults -was designed, and the idea of developing a product line of swings for people of all ages was taken further.

In September 2015 Lillagunga Toddler was introduced at Helsinki Design Week with immediate success. With its beautiful shape and double-folded genuine leather seat Lillagunga Toddler soon became the flagship product for the company. 

Just before Christmas in 2015 the current bestseller Lillagunga Rings were added to the collection, and it took not long before they proved to become a instant hit in the children's room. 

In late 2016 Lillagunga formed a collaboration with Japanese company DRILL DESIGN, and started to work on a rocking horse which originally was designed by DRILL DESIGN, but never launched commercially. After elaborating the design to better match the visual identity of Lillagunga Reindeer was launched a year later.

Today Lillagunga has physical shops in Finland and online retailers all over the world. Our aim is to continue developing new products of exceptional quality and become an internationally recognised brand in the global design market.
