More than 75 years ago Alois Hüls opened a carpenter’s shop with 10 employees in the Westphalian town of Stadtlohn and in doing so laid the foundation of hülsta. The brand name hülsta originates from the family name of the founder (Hüls) and the name of the town (Stadtlohn). His son, Karl Hüls, took over the company in 1960 and developed it into the most famous German furniture brand manufacturer.
Through its product developments, hülsta played an early and lasting role in shaping the furnishing sector of German industry. More than 220 national and international patents have been registered in the name of hülsta. Europe-wide hardly any other furniture manufacturer has been giving as many awards as hülsta for the quality of its products by so many independent institutes. Since 1996, hülsta is entitled to label all modular furniture and base frames with the strictly regulated “Blue Angel“, which awards products that are low in emissions and especially environmentally friendly.
Exclusive design, meticulously selected materials, high-quality manufacturing and detailed craftsmanship as well as sustainability, perfect functionality and consistent beauty for many years. This is the type of quality synonymous with hülsta.
