Company

WERTHER – Die Möbelmanufaktur was founded more than 90 years ago and still is a family-owned business in its third generation – with the fourth generation waiting at the ready.

A high level of experience, workmanship carried out by highly skilled and specialized workforce as well as the passion for timeless design make it possible to create unique and individual products. Products which you can immediately tell they are high class, not just on the outside, but also from within. A frame made out of hardwood, upholstery made out of cold foam or springs, a removable cover with sheep's wool as a bottom cover (which, for instance, prevents the pockets of the seating cushions from being seen) all stand for top quality made in Germany.

WERTHER furniture is perfect for individualists with high demands on quality and design. There are three styles to choose between: CLASSIC, BASIC and MODERN. Three styles covering a wide range of use for residential and commercial purposes to suit any requirement, for small or large rooms, delicate or not so. Exclusive fabric collections from the best international fabric companies and weaving mills as well as selected German or European leather leave nothing to be desired. Special stitching and technically challenging details make every piece of furniture unique. Additional side furniture complement the programmes.

With the label "Made in Germany" we consciously chose Germany as the place of production as this enables us to achieve our ambitious goals successfully in the long term.

This is what makes WERTHER - Die Möbelmanufaktur a reliable and trustworthy partner.

History

The origin for today's medium-sized business was a small saddlery which Hugo Oberwelland set up as his first own business in Bielefeld in 1919. After the Second World War his son Hermann with his wife Marianne took over the business and began to produce furniture.

Until the mid1980's the name WERTHER stood for elegant and functional sofa beds. Along with the next generation came a future-oriented market orientation. From then on high quality classic upholstered furniture and furniture systems were produced.

Since 2003 the company has been run by Klaus and Doris Oberwelland who are the third generation. They further specialized the business so that it has now become well known for the niche market of small and dainty furniture. In 2006 the company name changed from Werther Classic to "WERTHER - Die Möbelmanufaktur".

We deliberately stand out from the mainstream with our expressive, aesthetic and attractively shaped furniture, with our new and well-established models as well as with the exclusive and exquisite side furniture programme comprising side tables, small pieces of furniture and accessories.

Designer

The design and form of our furniture are the basis for contemporary and at the same time timeless furniture. To satisfy this requirement our own internal design team as well as internationally recognized designers are constantly looking for new forms and combinations.

Below you can see a selection of the designers.

Jan Armgardt

Armgardt is an experienced interior designer. He knows the furniture trade inside out. His practical know-how in upholstery, metalworking and mould construction characterizes our furniture.

In 1971 he founded "Workshopdesign" with a partner and later on he created unique assembly furniture with "Armgardt - zerlegbare Möbel". Since 1974 he has been working as a freelance designer for us and has designed successful models such as "Divina" or "Wave".

His knowledge is also highly appreciated in education. Among others Armgardt is a guest lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences in Aachen and with great energy and passion he shares his experience with young colleagues.

Commitment

We work for the future.

Ecological commitment starts bit by bit and every single person can do their bit. A number of small contributions can end up being effective environment protection. WERTHER - Die Möbelmanufaktur generates almost 100 percent of its electricity with its own photovoltaic system thereby avoiding approximately 80 tons of CO² emission every year. Our wood waste from furniture production is used for chipped-wood-heating. This is how our production facility is provided with a nice warm climate. Rainwater does not flow down the drain but into a collecting tank and from there it goes back outside.

We also show social commitment by sponsoring the new football pitch in Häger/Westphalia.
