Danish design company Vipp unveils its latest hotel destination, set within a 1775 farmhouse on the island of Lolland, Denmark. This is the fourth of Vipp’s hotels, part of a portfolio that includes a diverse range of architectures and locations (added to in 2024 with the Vipp Cold Hawaii Guesthouse in Denmark). Showcasing the versatility of the company’s minimalist products and furniture, the untraditional hotels also offer guests a place to experience exclusive locations in an immersive setting. Previous Vipp hotels have included a loft and a chimney house in Copenhagen, as well as the ‘Shelter’, a cabin located on Lake Immeln, Sweden. Each property is furnished with distinctive Vipp collections, also a great way, the company explains to ‘test drive your Vipp kitchen’ or designs before buying.

Part of the Søllestedgaard estate and nestled within a 1400-acre forest, the traditional farmhouse was a formed gardener’s residence and it combines vernacular countryside architecture with Vipp’s modernity. ‘During lock-down we have rediscovered nature and the charm of the Danish countryside, and now we share it with you,’ says Jette Egelund, 2nd generation Vipp owner. ‘Vipp’s fourth hotel destination offers a convenient escape to nature, a taste of farm life.’

The Farmhouse project was created in collaboration with Ulrik Th. Jørgensen, owner of the estate, and commissioned to interior designer Julie Cloos Mølsgaard who was tasked to give a contemporary feel to the ancient location through furniture, artworks and objects.

The house’s interiors combine traditional architecture and design elements with the contemporary, functional pieces commonly associated with Vipp, with some of the company’s most distinctive pieces – from the original pedal bin to its kitchen design – found throughout the spaces. The refurbishment left features such as whitewashed façades and thatched roof intact, while the interiors merge Vipp’s Scandinavian minimalism with a palette of calming natural hues. 

The Farmhouse’s immediate surroundings promise a nature-filled stay with exciting amenities such as the largest private greenery in Denmark (‘Den Grønne Verden’) and Spiseriet, a Michelin Starred restaurant using fresh local produce.
