“George Tanier is one of the outstanding figures in the post-war Danish furniture export trade. He was one of the pioneers when the adventure started in the beginning of the nineteen fifties and ever since, in time of prosperity and in times of adversity, he has been the ambassador of Danish furniture in the USA. He has now been created a knight of the order of the Dannebroge which shows that not only the Mobilia but also our sovereign, His Majesty King Frederik the Ninth, follows the Danish Furniture export trade with gracious favour.” – Mobilia, No. 143 – June 1967
