De Coene Frères (Kortrijk):
1887 is the year in which De Coene's story in Kortrijk begins. During the interwar period, the company gained international fame for the production of high quality Art Deco wooden furniture.

Orders from abroad (France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) poured in and the company became one of the most important furniture manufacturers in Belgium and its reputation then became international. We will also note a mass production from 1929, up to 1000 radio cabinets per day are produced for Philips Eindhoven. At the end of the 1930s, more than 3000 people were employed in the various departments. The company is still in business today ...
