de Sede has its origins in a small but skilled saddler's workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland. The craftsmen there committed themselves to transforming the best possible leather into seating furniture. Their years of experience and diligence enabled them to create hand-crafted leather furniture of singular quality.

In 1965, the family-run business became a joint-stock company called de Sede AG, but remained faithful to their original guiding principles.

The company developed rapidly from this moment onwards: top designers of international calibre were brought on board to create seating furniture, additional manufacturing facilities were opened, and an international distribution network was established. Sophisticated designs that skilfully integrate traditional and precise Swiss workmanship swiftly gained the brand an international reputation.

Today, de Sede AG presents itself as a leading manufacturer of exclusive leather furniture. Out of the original small workshop, a company has emerged that employs over 110 people and distributes furniture in more than 69 countries, including the United States and Russia, the GCC countries, and even emerging markets such as China and Brazil.

de Sede AG is owned by the Volare Group AG and Monika Walser, who has led de Sede since April 2014. Main shareholder of the Volare Group AG is Daniel Sieber.

In addition to the global de Sede brand, the factory in Klingnau also produces furniture for the FSM brand

Around 110 people work for de Sede AG around the world, including 100 in the factory in Klingnau.

de Sede AG produces more than 11,500 pieces of furniture each year, of which 70% is exported and distributed in over 69 countries.

On a production area of 11,000 m2, de Sede AG processes around 70,000 m2 of top-quality leather each year.

Presented for the first time at imm in Cologne in 1976, the exhibition hall began to tremble. The rush was on to get a glimpse of DS-47, made with NECK leather up to five millimeters thick was too great – meanwhile, there was so much interest that the stand had to be closed. The experts were beside themselves: up until then, the conventional wisdom was that this kind of thick leather could not be processed to create upholstered furniture.
