Founded in 1954 and still owner-managed to this day, COR is a medium-sized company that manually manufactures seating furniture for international markets at its Rheda-Wiedenbrück location. The premium brand COR (Latin for heart) is distributed worldwide through high-end specialist and contract retailers. The high-quality furniture, create by renowned designers, is used to furnish apartments and houses, hotels, lounges, embassies, museums, banks and airports. The carefully maintained and continuously developed product portfolio for the residential and contract sector includes sofas, armchairs, easy chairs, chairs and tables.
COR regularly receives awards for its outstanding design and corporate achievements. This sustained success is based on a willingness to innovate, design and traditional craftsmanship. The management, designers, technicians, carpenters and upholsterers at COR share a passion for creating lasting value and quality in a contemporary design, independent of trends and fashions. The modern manufactory in East Westphalia, the heart of the German furniture industry, has a workforce of 220 and trains talented young people on site.
Since 2002, the formerly jointly managed brands COR and interlübke (since 2014 under the name Lübke GmbH with new owners) have also presented their sophisticated living room and bedroom concepts in the COR and interlübke studios. Parallel to the exhibitions in the retail trade, the brand studios take the opportunity to show the perfect interplay of the collections of both premium manufacturers in a uniform architecture. The metropolitan regions of Hamburg, Cologne, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Munich and Vienna serve as studio locations.
The world's largest brand exhibition is located on approx. 2,000/3,000 square metres of designed presentation space in the COR Haus immediately adjacent to the production site in Rheda-Wiedenbrück. The current ranges of seating and upholstered furniture as well as a wide variety of fabric and leather collections are on display here, complemented by a generous specialist exhibition for furnishing in the contract sector. The historical COR Collection is also presented on a further exhibition space - as an informative journey through time, following a successful product and brand history spanning more than 60 years.
