A time travel

through more than 8 decades

More than 75 years have passed. Time for a quick look at the key stages in the development of the Musterring brand – in line with our motto of “Lots of tradition – lots of future”.

The years of the company‘s ascent are irrevocably bound to the story of the development of the Federal Republic of Germany. Today, Musterring is an internationally known and active furnishing brand that is quick to identify itself with its regional and historic roots.

IF IT'S NICEST AT HOME, IT'S MUSTERRING!

1938

Furniture architect Josef Höner founds the Musterring company. His idea: to combine industry, trade and service in a strong service association under the umbrella of a single brand.

The 1940s

After the break enforced by WWII, a new era dawns at a conference in Boppard in 1949. Although the first product is “only” an unassuming little sewing box, it is quickly followed by well-engineered quality furniture. The name Musterring soon becomes a synonym for top quality at affordable prices.

The 1950s

Very many successful designs are created. In 1953 Ludwig Erhard, the legendary father of the economic miracle, honours Musterring for selling 250,000 type “M49” bedrooms. At the end of the decade, Musterring takes its first steps on the Austrian market – the beginning of the internationalisation of the brand idea.

The 1960s

People’s requirements for home living are growing. Musterring scores with its innovative furnishing solutions. Furniture with emphasised sleek lines, such as the “Duett” bedroom programme, meets the requirements for unfussy modernity. Sophisticated wardrobe systems are the perfect solution for any room.

The 1970s

Musterring takes a further step towards quality assurance with the development of its own test institute. In 1973, the course is set for the brand’s international presence. The company’s first activities in Canada and Japan carry the Musterring idea to distant markets.

The 1980s

The company’s diversity of styles continues to increase. Nature-lovers opt for solid wood, while design-lovers are delighted by black lacquered fronts. Sophisticated wall unit systems reach the zenith of their popularity. Musterring becomes one of the first providers to introduce a 5-year guarantee.

The 1990s

Wardrobe solutions become smaller, and height reductions start to gain in importance. Overall, the 1990s are about reduction, while plain fabrics dominate for upholstered furniture. Musterring is very quick to adopt the trend for mixing styles, doing so under the heading of “Transitional”. The company introduces the first home cinema solutions.

The 2000s

Musterring continues to develop its offer to suit the market. set one by Musterring is the birth of a young, knock-down collection for the world of furniture. Musterring’s first collection of bathroom furniture fulfils the desire for a perfect oasis of peace and well-being.

Bruno Höner consistently develops his father’s life work over decades, and the third generation of the family joins the company management with his sons Oliver, Hendrik and Alexander. Independent market research confirms the high level of familiarity with and sympathy for the brand – good prerequisites for facing the challenges of the future.
