Antiques have become increasingly popular with the desire for creative individuality. "Antique", in its purest meaning, is an original piece. At the same time, antique means often "handmade", unique or produced in small numbers. Thus, antique furniture stands for individuality and taste and appeals to people of the modern age in a special way. At home you have the opportunity to differentiate your lifestyle from the economic masses. You can display your own character and style through precious and extraordinary antique furniture. Why not revalue your living environment with quality antiques that surpass modernity by its timeless character? OAF sees itself as a juggler with the forms and surfaces of antique furniture of the Art Déco and Bauhaus era, which already at former times set new standards in shape, color and creativity. The consciously modern interpretation of antique furniture creations by our experienced furniture designers gently enhance the charm and charisma of antiques - without losing its original ancient character. We spare no effort and expense in the professional restoration and refinement of antique furniture in order to create unique designer pieces of the highest quality and longevity - a prerequisite for antique furniture to serve as an attractive capital investment. Even if you do not look for profitable investments, you might just simply like our pimped antique furniture and use for your home.
The Münsterland Gruppe GmbH & Co KG is a carpentry and paint shop, specializing in the restoration of and trade with antique furniture, especially from the Art-déco and Bauhaus era. Our focus is purchasing rare antique furniture worldwide, restore and refine them in-house and sell it again worldwide. Through the years of constant expansions of production capacities and qualifications of our carpenter team, we are now also able to reproduce any furniture or even create new furniture of any design – which is why we also supply the retail and wholesale with high-quality reproductions and designer furniture.
Positioning the company
Our goal from the very first has been to achieve maximum quality in our work. In order to achieve this, high investments in machines and human capital have been done, all for the purpose to have all production facilities under one roof and thus have full control over the whole production process. Meanwhile, all production and operations run inhouse and are monitored and reviewed constantly by a standardized quality process consisting of multiple inspections and detailed logging. This all results in finished furniture pieces that are unique in its design and – due to their quality – are preserved for eternity and can be seen as ideal investment objects. Our work can compete with those of the best quality manufacturers in the world, both in our restorations and reproductions.
Relatively low prices
At the same time that our expanded production facility increased our product quality, it enabled us to maximize efficiencies of production resulting in lower production cost. Compared to many other restoration or furniture building companies, we can produce the highest quality at very competitive prices. On the one hand, retail and wholesale profits from lower purchase prices. On the other hand, since we sell directly through our website, the consumer profits, too. Since we do not operate expensive show or selling rooms, we can also maintain our marketing costs at a low level, which we translate in lower furniture prices for the private consumer.
We invested not only the education and training of personnel to improve our products but also in the industry expertise of the manager. Since 2018, Kai Kogelboom, our CEO, is an official appraiser for antique furniture from the Federal Association of German Experts and Evaluators eV (DGSV). Therefore, we now sell every single furniture with a certificate of authenticity. Of course, companies or individuals can use OAM and Mr. Kogelboom as a certifier and/or consultant for the classification and estimation of antique furniture.
MüG supplies both retail (such as antique stores) as well as distributors. In fact, we meanwhile maintains quite a large network of antique dealers and distributors in Germany and some other countries, however, in 2019, we will be working hard to further expand our international activities. As a more and more interesting distribution channel, we also sell to the end-consumer directly through the German and this, English website as well some other online platforms featuring our antique furniture.
