Founded by brothers Ron, Rick, and Mike, the company was inspired by their father, Ed Keilhauer, who was an upholsterer and saddle-maker with European training and a pioneer in the design of contract seating in North America. Keilhauer began as a customs manufacturer for the local market to fill niches that weren’t readily available and, over the years, has developed over 100 product collections. Now sold around the world, Keilhauer is a key supplier of seating to the commercial industry and has managed to keep its small family business values and integrity in tact after 30 years. They strive to be a sustainable company with a light footprint as dozens of independent designers bring fresh and innovative ideas to their business, producing many award winning designs each year.

Here’s a look at some of their newest product lines, starting with a winner from this year’s NeoCon:


Gold, Best of NeoCon
Grand Prize, Seating, Buildings Magazine Product Innovations Awards

“Juxta is a beautiful, innovative collection of seating and tables designed to address all the juxtapositions in our working lives. Meetings can occur in lounge or work chairs, in side chairs and stools, with complementary tables at various heights. Chairs are available on sled or 4-leg bases, and on 4-star bases with glides, or 5-star bases with casters, both with and without pivoting table arms. Stools are available on 4-leg, 4-star with glides, or 5-star bases with casters.  Stools without backs are offered on 4-star bases with glides and 5-star bases with casters.”



“Cahoots is a multidimensional lounge collection, consisting of 4 lounge chairs, 8 sectional pieces, 4 side chairs, and 4 tables. All Cahoots elements function individually, with each other, or with other furniture, to create limitless configurations of lounge landscapes. Larger sectional pieces define spaces while lighter-scaled chairs and tables can be moved to accommodate impromptu meetings, solitary work, or relaxation.”



“K-Modern Collection is an 11-piece series of lounge chairs, sofas, and occasional tables that reinterprets the classic designs of the mid-20th century from a contemporary vantage point. Refined, understated modernism evokes warmth, comfort, and timelessness.”
