Pols Potten, the Amsterdam-based producer of quirky interior classics, was founded in 1986 by Erik Pol. The company offers a collection of high-quality furniture and interior accessories, often designed by Dutch designers such as Norman Trapman, Wieki Somers, Roderick Vos, and its own PP team. The Vase 3D Rose and the Coral vase series are world famous. The iconic products adorn many hotel lobbies and palaces.
Erik Pol left the company before and was succeeded by Theo Grootendorst and Jan Wolleswinkel who developed the company into a global player. With the exception of an image store on the KNSM island in Amsterdam, Pols Potten consciously chose not to open its own retail. The company is expanding primarily in collaboration with strong retailers, both offline and online.
Karmijn holds a majority stake and will support the company in further internationalization.
