It all began with a horse-drawn carriage. In 1895 the young niels eilersen started out as coachbuilder. To make his wheels, he was the first person in denmark to use steam to bend wood. And when cars eventually ran horse-drawn carriages off the road, eilersen started making handmade bodies for cars and busses. In 1934 the factory burned to the ground. yet this marked the start of an entirely different production process. From that time on, eilersen focused on producing high-quality upholstered furniture. The sofas soon became very successful and the company has been making steady progress ever since.
Today the fourth generation has propelled the factory and the eilersen trademark into the next millennium. the name itself is synonymous with quality and eilersen has a fantastic, world-wide reputation for its sofas. several models have already risen in stature to classics, while the rest simply provide daily enjoyment for many years.
Eilersen furniture is the result of proud traditions and modern development. Quality for more than 100 years.
