Our Winning History

Art Van Furniture is one of the biggest retail success stories in the nation. After five decades of being in business, we've opened over 100 stores across the Midwest. Our beautiful showrooms have become well known for decorating inspiration and a one stop shopping destination.

Our name has also become synonymous with community involvement thanks to our founder, Mr. Art Van Elslander. His priority for giving back has empowered us to donate and give back to our community through our annual Charity Challenge.

From the ground up Mr. Art Van Elslander, Chairman and Founder of Art Van Furniture, began working in a Detroit furniture store as a young man. In just a few short years, he was ready for a bigger challenge and opened his own store in 1959. His founding philosophy was to provide the community with quality furniture at great prices, with always high standards of customer service.

Known then as Art Van’s, Mr. Van Elslander was the sole employee of the store, which featured Danish and contemporary home furnishings. Though Detroit's economy was struggling, the company grew and later the name was changed to the current Art Van Furniture. In 1973, Art Van Furniture moved its headquarters to the 14 Mile location in Warren, where it is still located today.

After 55 years, our family-run business operates 47 Art Van Furniture Stores and 54 PureSleep Mattress Stores in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Ohio.
