• Creating homes for decades: Welle over the years.

    Every era has its own style. As every decade passes, so does the way in which we live.

    Welle has been writing furniture history since 1896. Because we have always moved with the times,  a look back at our company history is also a journey back through different style eras.

    Discover a truly traditional company with a lot of history.

  • 1896 - 1950

    In 1896 Johann Philipp Josef Welle founded a joinery shop in Paderborn measuring 3 x 4 metres. A few years later business was flourishing and with the help of some employees, he was building all kinds of furniture - mainly bedrooms, wardrobes, tables, and chairs for the "front room". In as early as 1928, 35 employees were making furniture for private customers.

    In 1935 the two sons, Josef and Johannes Welle, took over the company and in 1936 built a new factory on Wollmarktstraße. This was later where 200 people mass-produced furniture for the trade market. Welle continued to expand, but became caught up in the terrors of War. On the 10th March 1945 almost the whole factory was destroyed during an air-raid. 

    Post-war homes were often limited to just one room with adjoining kitchen and bathroom. A separate bedroom was a scarcity. Welle created the perfect solution with  its pioneering "living room wardrobe".

  • The 1950s

    July 1949 marked the beginning of the Welle-wardrobe which took off in the 50s proving a huge success all over Germany. This universal piece of furniture not only provided space for laundry and clothes, but also for everything that belonged in the living room. The first model came in three different styles, at an irresistible price. It was a success built to last. Using various woods and finishes more and more models were created in order to meet the enormous market demand. The universal wardrobe was continually updated to a total of 28 different versions by 1965. Within 16 years around 500.000 wardrobes were produced in Paderborn.

    Whilst Toni Turek became football God, Germany experienced the industrial boom, and the housing conditions improved - the Welle-wardrobe maintained its status as the practical essential for every German living room. All the while another item of furniture was taking Germany by storm: the wall-system. Cupboards by themselves of joined together became all the rage. Welle didn't hang around and soon offered an array of combinations. This was the beginning of Welle's perfect furnishing solutions for all rooms, primarily for teenagers, students, and guest rooms.

  • The 1960s

    The music revolution began in German households: starting with the Beatles, shortly followed by the Rolling Stones. Teenagers stuck posters of their idols, Mick Jagger and John Lennon onto their wall units. Welle reacted by producing good value cupboards which could be arranged into different combinations - demand was high.

    Teenagers were no longer called "rowdies", but "twens". Welle followed this trend by introducing the "Twenzimmer Cheri" which continued to be produced well into the 70's, first in the "in" colour white, and later in many other versions. Even the universal wardrobe was still present: modern and contemporary it was to remain an essential item on the order lists in Paderborn.

  • The 1970s

    Hippies demonstrated for world peace, disco music hit German dance floors, and the first ever VW Golf was built. Welle is now a key player on the German furniture market and produces living room units, wall units, teenager's rooms, apartment furniture, bedrooms, and guest bedrooms.

    The trendsetters and bestsellers of this colouful decade are the bedrooms "Lady Barbara" and "Cosima", still the teenager's room "Cheri" and the functional nursery "Natalie". This room in particular continued to be a focal point of Welle's development team, perfecting it to become an innovative and space-saving nursery.

  • The 1980s

    Neue Deutsche Welle (new German Wave): Wall units have even more impact in the product range in Paderborn. The most important however, is the teenager's room and a concentrated effort will eventually lead Welle to become market leader. This is not surprising considering the number of ideas: "Ronny" for example enables wall-to-wall units in a loft conversion for the first time.

    Home computers become affordable and as a result demand grows for home offices. Welle doesn't hesitate in introducing office furniture into its ever expanding range. The "Junior" range turns out to be the most successful. Welle further expands towards the end of the decade by introducing the nursery range - "Bobby" was the first and was designed without corners and edges. "Sven" is made from solid pine. Even home textiles for the smallest are taken care of with the addition of "Bebino" - everything for children.

  • The 1990s

    The beginning of the decade saw the birth of the wall unit "Padova": part solid and singularly stackable. At the same time a concept was being planned, that would become the most successful baby and child series: the first "growing" bedroom "Alina".

    In 1995 the teenager's room"Allround" was added and is still a permanant fixture at Welle today. 2006 saw the rebirth of the bedroom at Welle, but until then they enjoyed a peaceful sleep.

    During this time the Welle nurseries experienced a boom and the range grew continually to meet demand. Things were happening in the office segment as well. The first professional office was born: "TOPDIN" met all DIN standards and ensured ergonomics played a more important role in the office.
