About Hekman Furniture Company
In 1893, Edsko Hekman ventured from the Netherlands to Grand Rapids, Mich., hoping to find his life's work as a furniture maker. His enchantment with furniture, crafted in the old-world traditions, would later blossom in his three sons John, Jelle, and Henry. They would fulfill their father's dream and open the doors of the Hekman Furniture Company in 1922. The same doors, in the same location, are open today. The careful selection of ingredients, the patient hands-on techniques, and the exacting presentation - the shared passions of the Edsko and his furniture-making sons - remain the hallmarks of the Hekman Furniture Company today. Now, almost a century old, Hekman is widely recognized as one of America's premier furniture makers.
