See also my further advertisements for furniture and accessories! information about Huizinga see below: Jakobus Abraham or 'Ko' Huizinga was born in 1861 in Westzaan to a prominent Groningen Mennonite family. In 1868 father Huizinga returns to the city with his children and goes to live on the canal outside the Herepoort. Ko goes to Amsterdam in 1880 to learn to be a furniture maker and returns to the city in 1889, from Paris. He settles on the Eeldersingel, builds a workshop with a few servants and starts a company. In 1891 he buys a wood shed and wood cuttings from P.J. Vos and hired architect Huurman for the conversion into a furniture warehouse. He calls the company Meubelfabriek Nederland and immediately employs 23 people. He also does wallpapering (where, for example, my grandfather, M. Hofman, gets work for 25 cents an hour). Huizinga's furniture factory soon became a household name. During the Groningen 'world exhibition' of 1903, he has his own stand in the pavilion of the Groninger Nijverheid, while two other Groningen furniture manufacturers jointly provide an entry. Huizinga is also represented at an exhibition in Arnhem. Huizinga also sells products from others (glass and copper work by Eisenlöffel, carpets by Bouwens and Colenbrander, embroidery by Van Reesema and Nierstrasz, batik work by Jessurun de Mesquita, pottery by Brouwer, De Distel and Amstelhoek). The most important in-house designer is Anton Sanders (1869-1909), who also designed the striking new furniture warehouse on Bleekerstraat in 1904. Huizinga is also involved in vocational education. Former students of Minerva find work at Meubelfabriek Nederland. Furthermore, Huizinga has been on the board of the Craft School for 25 years. And when in 1923 the C.H. Petersstraat comes to a new school, he is busy with the furnishing. Huizinga dies on August 28, 1937. New director Beukema sells buildings on Westersingel (demolished in 1939), buys the former Walloon church and has it renovated (arch. Van Linge). The secret of Huizinga was that every furniture maker made a chair from start to finish and thus became one with the chair). In 1953 Huizinga merges with Rodenberg. But the furniture store Huizinga & Rodenberg (moved to Haren in 1999) no longer exists either.
