Born in Denmark, Niels Bendtsen has always been exposed to design and craftsmanship. After emigrating in 1951 to Canada, he began to apprentice under his father, a cabinetmaker who worked under Jacob Kjaer, and continued to build Scandinavian furniture when in Canada.

Starting in 1963, Bendtsen had his own retail store where he sold his father's designs, as well as other pieces from Scandinavia. Moving around the world while gaining different types of experience in the world of furniture, Bendtsen started his own manufacturing company, Bensen, for which he makes most of the designs, as well as making pieces for brands like Linteloo.
