We love what we do. For generations.

The Thelen family has been engaged in carpentry since 1726. After almost 300 years, it is the Thelen sons and their families whose names still stand for inventiveness and perfection.

At a total of five locations, each with different focuses, we are engaged in personalized, sophisticated interior design of living and working spaces as well as for high-quality kitchens – and prove our ability to clients again and again. We love what we do. For generations!

Around 150 qualified and energetic people are part of the Thelen team: our advisers accompany our clients from the initial idea all the way to the personalized implementation. Our high-grade furniture and expansions are built to specification in our own carpentry workshop. And our specialists, fitters, craftsmen, drivers and service personnel ensure a smooth process at every step of the way.

Since 1998, we have teamed up with Drifte Wohnform to expand and continually grow our offerings for high-grade living. CEO Aydin Yildrim is partnered with the Thelen family and contributes to our current business.

Tradition meets innovation

Tradition and innovation – in our furniture manufactory state-of-the-art Thelen kitchens and individual fixtures and furniture are specially made for your highly personal living space. Supported by computer-guided production technology, over 50 carpenters ensure the consistently high quality for which our house is known. With its entry into the first Register of Craftsmen in 1726, our factory in Nettetal is verifiably the oldest carpentry workshop in the Lower Rhine region. In this great tradition, we have always guided our craftsmanship in an innovative way. We thus are not only among the oldest of our guild – we are also among the most modern.

We approach each order conceptually and develop individual solutions in every area – whether kitchen, living room, bedroom or office – with your own personal touch. Alongside furniture and fixtures from our own factory, we work with furnishings, equipment, and accessories from brand-name producers whom we trust. The result is always an individual Thelen solution: the best for your home. 

Our passion: kitchens

Your Individual kitchen is a living space with a high demand for design and functionality. It’s expression of vitality. For you, for your family, for your guests. More than forty years ago, we placed an emphasis on modern built-in kitchens. We build the perfect Thelen kitchen for your personal requirements and needs – realized with high-grade craftsmanship in our in-house factory. Beyond this, we are also happy to install fixtures from our partners for you – transforming them into “your kitchen.” Whether surfaces, colors, lighting effects, wall design or furnishing with high-quality fitting and electronic devices – we make visions a reality.

Living is a feeling

The smallest detail contributes to the whole effect. We see your living spaces as your own, personal world in which you feel at home – and this is exactly what you should experience. We make your wishes and ideas a reality and gladly give you inspiration for something new. This is what we call living dreams in design
