Founded by Niels Eilersen in 1895 to manufacture horse-drawn carriages, today Eilersen is renown for the long-lasting comfort and Scandinavian sleekness of its sofas.
Niels Eilersen was an innovative young man, being the first in Denmark to discover steam-bending wood. So when automobiles became the preferred mode of transportation, he adapted his coach-building technique to build bodies for cars and buses. In 1934 his factory burned to the ground. Adapting once again to new circumstances, Niels Eilersen decided to start producing high-quality upholstered furniture.
The Danish company has built upon the innovations of its founder and is constantly improving production techniques with new technology. Eilersen prides itself on keeping the tradition of quality craftsmanship to create modern, fashion-conscious pieces of furniture that will last a lifetime. Lekker Home is proud to be the only Eilersen showroom in New England.
