The man who lit the Bolon spark was our founder, Nils-Erik Eklund. Today, his grand daughters Annica and Marie keep the spirit alive.
Since they took over the company from their parents Lars and Monica in 2003, they have been on a mission – to make Bolon a design-led innovator and fuse the conservative, traditional flooring branch with the boundless creativity of the world of fashion. That we have succeeded so spectacularly is satisfying. That in doing so, we’ve collaborated with world-renowned designers and architects as well as working with international brands makes us even more proud. However, pride is one thing and complacency is another – and standing still has never been an option here at Bolon.
This is our continuing story – and we sincerely hope that through our innovative, challenging and world leading flooring it becomes your inspiration.

A third generation family business. It’s a story we’ll never tire of hearing. Over 70 years ago in Stockholm, Sweden an idea sparked into life. Textile waste became rag rugs and Bolon was born. In many ways, our founder Nils-Erik Eklund was ahead of his time and today, his ability to see opportunity where others couldn’t still inspires us.

In Jemena’s new Melbourne headquaters, seven floors and 800+ people have offered up a juicy challenge in exploring how design might create a sense of communal familiarity in a large-scale environment.
