A Multiform kitchen deserves to be used for generations. It is a kitchen classic built to last. Built for everyday and built for living. For a lifetime. Just like the best furniture classics.
Lifelong durability and sustainability are two sides of the same coin as far as we are concerned. It is therefore important, not only to us but also for global resources, that our kitchens can find new homes when a property is re-developed or changes hands, for example. And so it was an obvious choice for us to make our website available to private individuals wanting to sell or buy used Multiform kitchens. This makes it possible for a new family to find enjoyment in a Multiform Secondhand kitchen.

When they had to choose interiors for their exclusive apartment, they ordered a mahogany kitchen (Form 2) from Multiform. The couple’s mahogany kitchen has now moved on to the next family. The buyers were a young family who were very committed to the process of acquiring their ‘new’ kitchen which they can enjoy for many years to come.
“It was a pleasure using our ‘old’ kitchen every day. It functioned so well that we chose the same set-up for the new kitchen. The only reason for changing kitchens was that we wanted a slightly brighter look.”
Kaj Erik Ravn, owner.
Design, functionality and details
The new kitchen is made of light oak and with custom-sized slats to emphasise the simple and light look that the couple wanted.
Together with his wife Jette, Kaj Erik Ravn feels that all of the couple’s wishes for their new kitchen have been fulfilled:
“Getting a new kitchen has been a really good process. Chris Jakobsen has captured the essence of what matters to ensure that you are really happy with your kitchen. He has a sense for design, functionality and details, as well as how it fits in with rest of the home. For example, he has designed a wooden frame around our American refrigerator, which is elegant. The same goes for our trolley in the kitchen, where he suggested a design with coloured legs. It adds personality and fits in with the rest of the home. We’re really happy with it.”
See the pictures of the new kitchen below.
“It’s really nice to think that others will benefit from our kitchen, which didn’t lack anything. It would be a shame to get rid of it.”
Kaj Erik Ravn, owner
Passing on instead of throwing away
When they needed a new kitchen, one of the owners of the Multiform store in Aarhus, Chris Jakobsen, encouraged the couple to put the old kitchen up for sale on Multiform’s website, where used Multiform kitchens are also bought and sold. Multiform would like to see the kitchens being passed on to a new family when an owner chooses to replace their kitchen. Because every kitchen is designed and built to last for generations.
Kaj Erik Ravn and his wife Jette are among the increasing number of families who pay tribute to the ‘pass on’ rather than the ‘throw away’ principle.
“It just makes sense for a Multiform kitchen to have a new home when a family has finished using it. A Multiform kitchen is a design classic made with great care for the individual family by the most skilled professionals. For example, it was the same carpenter at Multiform who made both the couple’s first and second kitchens with an interval of 20 years”, says Chris Jakobsen from Multiform in Aarhus.
He finds that more and more young people appreciate design classics – also with regard to kitchens. In this way, a used Multiform kitchen can be the start of a lifelong passion for design and exquisite craftsmanship.
Longevity is a powerful sustainable perspective, which means a lot to many. It makes sense – throughout the process,” says Chris Jakobsen.
If you want to sell your used Multiform kitchen, it would be beneficial for both you and the future owner for you to describe the following in your advertisement:
- Product type, e.g. kitchen, bathroom, utility room, wardrobe
- Model, e.g. Form 1. Find the series here in the menu under
- Materials, e.g. type of wood, finish or colour
- Worktop, e.g. material, colour, sink
- Specify the measurements of your kitchen.
- Any conditions relating to disassembly and collection that the buyer must be aware of
- Specific notes
- Contact details so the buyer can get in touch with you
Multiform has been making handmade kitchen classics since 1982. We are therefore often able to help if you need to supplement a Multiform secondhand kitchen with additional cupboards, new handles, etc. You can find your nearest Multiform store here.
Make sure that you do your preparation work well to ensure that you buy a kitchen that fits your space and your needs. It is always a good idea to view a used kitchen before buying.
Take careful measurements in the room where the kitchen will be installed. It is essential for the kitchen to be optimally fitted out for everyday use. Check the measurements again. Are there any installations or other things that have to be moved (electricity, water and heating)? The building code requirements concerning distances for safe work in kitchens must be met, for example.
Are you unable to reuse the entire kitchen and only need parts of it? If, for example, you end up with too many cupboards, there could very well be others who would like to buy them from you.
Remember to agree with the seller how and when the kitchen will be disassembled and transported.
Celebrate becoming the new owner of a genuine kitchen classic from Multiform. A kitchen, filled with history and soul, which will now provide a new family with the backdrop for enjoying life.
The luxury of the future: Kitchens with character, stories and memories
– Our future as humans has to be and will be about creating and developing items that last – and prioritising ownership of those that have meaning and stories. Part of the future of luxury will be about the freedom and flexibility afforded by pieces that are designed to last: we will value them because we will be able to enjoy them without worry, says Jill Hawkins, lifestyle futures expert from The Future Thief.
Right now, we are overwhelmed with ‘stuff’ that has little emotional value in our lives. As a result, we are looking to responsible, considerate brands to help us live better, and for them to really care about helping us do that.
We are so much more conscious of where our fixtures, fittings and furniture come from, and are increasingly checking ourselves for every decision we make, especially those that are high stakes, such as a new kitchen. If we are to commit, we will want to be reassured that what we are buying is sustainably sourced and produced, designed to last and made with skill and consideration.
In the future, the kitchen will retain its place as both the functional and emotional centre of our homes. Of course, the role of the kitchen will evolve and adapt along with our lifestyles, but it will always be a place where memories are made, thus driving our desire to invest in the best we can afford. A handcrafted, luxury kitchen: new or pre-loved, will serve those needs well.
Ownership is becoming less about having a thing for ourselves, but about experiencing it instead. And as we seek to only own things with meaning, the quality, pre-owned pieces that are filled with character, stories and memories will be more and more in demand.
– The range of pre-owned that are more highly valued than new is widening. As our lifestyle values evolve in the future, we will be looking for alternative ways of accessing and using products. We will want them to provide the exact same level of style and quality from pre-owned as from new, but with the joy of a back story, soul and heritage, says Jill Hawkins.
