It all began with a horse-drawn carriage. In 1895 the young Niels Eilersen started out as a coachbuilder. 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.
