From the ground up. Mr. 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 on Gratiot Avenue and 10 Mile Road 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 from 12 Mile and Van Dyke Road 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 and Ohio.

Advice to Management
Find the best way to funnel information from the top out to the team so that everyone is singing the same tune. Trust your staff and let them play their position.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Art Van Furniture (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.
They are very straight forward, discussed expectations of the position, local company structure, amount of recent growth and expectations for the next couple years. Expect a call with a few preliminary questions and then to meet in person with your local hiring manager.
