The Art Van Team getting ready for Parade Day!
Art Van Furniture, the Midwest number one furniture and mattress company was founded by Art Van Elslander in 1959. What began in a modest 4,000 square foot store in East Detroit is now more than 120 locations across the Midwest including Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Iowa.
The founding philosophy was to provide the community with quality furniture at great prices with high standards of customer service and that belief continues six decades later. Having built his company with the belief that “buildings are just brick and mortar, but the heartbeat of a company is its people,” Van Elslander’s business savvy and groundbreaking practices have earned him the loyalty of his employees and the respect of the furniture industry.
Van Elslander is also credited with saving Michigan’s iconic Thanksgiving Day Parade from financial ruin in 1990, and helping it thrive in the years since to become America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van Furniture.
In 2017, Van Elslander sold his business to T.H. Lee Partners.
