In Our Community

Art Van Furniture is a name synonymous with superior quality, service and customer satisfaction. And as with the company that bears his name, Mr. Art Van Elslander has a deep commitment not only to his customers and his 3600 employees, but to the community at large.

America's Thanksgiving Day Parade

In 1991, America's Thanksgiving Parade was on the verge of collapse. Art Van Elslander, the founder of Art Van Furniture, made a historic donation that saved the parade, one of Michigan's most beloved traditions. Since then, Mr. Art Van Elslander, his children and grandchildren and many Art Van Furniture Associates have made it their tradition to walk in the parade. Art Van Furniture became the parade's presenting sponsor in 2013, a great source of pride for the company's entire team. Today, America's Thanksgiving Parade is broadcast nationwide, and our special tradition is shared with millions of families across the U.S.
