History

Art Van Elslander founded Art Van in 1959, opening his first store in East Detroit.[2] Van Elslander's furniture first business was a 4,000 square-foot space on Gratiot Avenue and 10 Mile Road. He expanded to three stores in that same year, and a fourth store opened in 1960. His first employee was not hired until this time.[3] Art Vans Furniture (later changed to Art Van Furniture) opened with mostly modern and Danish-style furniture.[4]

By 1963, Van Elslander owned seven stores and had taken on some partners, including his brother, Bob Van Elslander, Don Fox and Bob McEachin.[5] The following year, three of those stores were sold off, however Van Elslander expanded the chain in the 1970s and in 1973 the company purchased its headquarters in Warren, Michigan. Around that time, the company had fifteen stores in its chain. In the late 1970s opened several warehouses and a corporate training department. In 1977 the company opened stores outside of Detroit, in Flint and Lansing, Michigan.[6]

In 1980, the company issued its first credit card and in 1985 the company introduced clearance centers attached to many of the stores offering overstocked merchandise. In 2009, the company's half-centennial, Art Van Furniture was named furniture retailer of the year by Furniture Today magazine.[7] In 2013, the company made a $50 million investment in the State of Illinois to open a sequence of new establishments in the state.[8] In 2015 Patti Smith wrote about Art Van stores as a favorite hang-out of hers during the 1970s.[9] The CEO of the company is Ron Boire.[10] Art Van also operates Scott Shuptrine Interiors retail locations. In March 2017 the company was purchased by Thomas H. Lee Partners (THL) a private equity firm based in Boston.

Growing

In November, 2018 Art Van Furniture LLC purchased Levin Furniture of Smithon, PA and Wolf Furniture in Altoona, PA.

Stores

The company operates 141 stores located in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Missouri a full service e-commerce website, in addition to 45 freestanding Art Van PureSleep bedding stores.[11] The company also has franchised stores located in the Midwest.[12] In 2010, Art Van acquired Brewbaker's Furniture, which had locations in Petoskey and Onaway.[13] The Onaway store was closed in 2013.[14] The first franchise was opened within Young's Appliance of Alpena in 2012.

Franchise locations have since opened in Marquette, Sault Ste. Marie, Mount Pleasant,[15] Gaylord, Owosso, and East Tawas, along with a PureSleep franchise in Midland and a franchise of Sofa Select in Mishawaka, Indiana, Findlay and Genoa, Oh, Rockford Illinois, and Coraville, Iowa[16] The Downers Grove, Illinois store opened in 2015.

In all the company has nearly 200 stores.[17] Art Van had partnered with Paul's TV to open a section for Paul's TV to sell televisions inside Art Van stores. 18 locations were opened, however all were closed down by 2015.[18] Other boutique sections have included AV Flooring, and Art Van Furniture also operates three Scott Shuptrine interior design studios in the state of Michigan.[19] Art Van also produces a mail catalog of its furniture designs.[20]

Marketing

In 2015 the company paid out $2.5 million dollars in free furniture to 3000 customers after a promotion that gave away the purchases of customers if it snowed three inches each in the cities of Toledo, Fort Wayne, and Chicago.[21][22] In 2016, Art Van replaced its regional Super Bowl advertisements in the Detroit and Grand Rapids areas with a thank you message for donors of water to Flint, Michigan, which the company had solicited through its charitable programs.[23]

Kidzaw Master Kitz The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh
Kidzaw Master Kitz The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh
This is a great art kit for the young budding artist. Children are given all the instruction and tools they need to create their own Starry Night masterpiece, along with learning materials on Vincent van Gogh and his contributions to art. The trick is in the specially designed tools that come with every kit and the easy to follow step-by-step instructions. No two Master Kitz are alike and each focuses on a different art technique. The Starry Night Master Kitz focuses on active brush stroke and includes the Van Gogh roller which allows children to create this same effect in their painting. The rest of the painting gets created with simple tools like stencils and oil pastels. But there is plenty of room for creativity and no two paintings are ever the same. The great thing is that children as young as 4 years old can create right along with their 7 or 8 year old sibling because each kit leaves so much room for the young artist’s unique style to be expressed. The process is fun, educational and inspires them to keep creating! And the tools in the kit can be used long after the initial two paintings are finished. Use them in other arts and craft projects or use with other colors of acrylic paint and paper (not included in kit) to create an endless number of Sunflower paintings. The finished project can be framed in any standard frame and makes a great gift mother’s day gift or holiday gift for grandma or grandpa. Master Kitz were designed in a classroom environment and each process tested for many years before becoming a commercial product.

Piatnik Van Gogh Playing Cards - Single Deck Set
Piatnik Van Gogh Playing Cards - Single Deck Set
This set of artsy playing cards made by the Austrian game publisher and manufacturer of board games, playing cards and puzzles company Piatnik, established in 1824; features masterpieces by the Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh. Vincent Willem Van Gogh was born on March 30th, 1853 in Groot-Zundert, in the southern Netherlands. He was the oldest surviving child of his family and was given the name of his grandfather, and of a brother who was born a stillborn. His brother and friend Theo was born four years later. The piece, according to art historian Meyer Shapiro, was created under the “pressure of feeling” and that the painting is “visionary…inspired by a religious mood.” Indeed, the solemn and meditative qualities of The Starry Night are considerable. Not only this, however, but the painting’s almost hallucinatory character are extremely expressive, and this blend of chaos and stillness is one of the most compelling aspects of the piece. It has also been described as a highly religious painting, involving van Gogh’s deeply spiritual and personal reflections on his religion as a whole. A continually troubled man, Vincent van Gogh shot himself in the chest on July 27, 1890. While he tried to get help, he was unable to be saved and died on the evening 29 hours after the gunshot. His last words are haunting: “The sadness will last forever.” He was only 37 years old. His influence wouldn’t fully emerge until the mid-1900’s, where he would forever after be considered one of the most significant artists of all time.
