Family business from the Upper Franconian Ebersdorf-Frohnlach, Germany

The beginning …

From the very beginning, company founder Willi Schillig recognised that there are two types of sitting. Sitting and sitting properly. As a pioneer in the furniture trade he used all his knowledge and expertise to make the finest seating comfort of all time possible …

The great passion

The sofa was his great passion – and this was passed on to his family, which has now been carried onto a third generation. Today, the management of the company is still completely in family hands.

At home in the world, the world at home

Anyone who is often on the run needs a place to go. We long for enduring values: trust, warmth, reliability… where can we better realize our dreams than in our home?

As a family-owned company with deep roots, we want to conjure up an atmosphere that invites you to relax and to dream. Our employees design furniture for people who take time – time for family, time for friends, time for themselves.

W.SCHILLIG combines form, colour and function into true wellbeing. For more than 70 years, we have been building  lasting quality of enduring value – you will ultimately spend many years with our furniture…

Take a moment and start dreaming!
