Karpen Furniture is original furniture produced by the American manufacturer Karpen & Bros. The Karpen & Bros. furniture company was established in Chicago in 1880 by German immigrants Solomon and Oscar Karpen. At the height of their success in the early 20th century, the company employed several hundred people, and was considered a leader in the upholstered furniture market. Karpen was purchased in 1952 by the Schnadig Corporation, and towards the end of the 20th century the company was still manufacturing furniture from Chicago, with plants based in various locations around the United States.
