About Us

Company and Philosophy ...


In the beginnings ...

Everything began in 1993:
Bruno Schönlein founded the company “Hallen & Baustoffe Schönlein”, now known as “Schlossdielen Schönlein”, in 1993. In the beginning, he carried out all of his business activities from an office in his home and converted the attic floor into a showroom where he could present floor boards
Over the years, he succeeded in establishing “Schlossdielen”, known as “chateau planks” in English, as a premium product across the entire industry. Today, these large planks are highly valued. Later, the company was renamed “Hallen & Schlossdielen Schönlein”, and it eventually received the name it bears today: “Schlossdielen Schönlein”.

Chateau planks:
These exclusive wood floors with large dimensions originally find application in castles, museums, churches and stately homes, but today they are also highly demanded in private housholds with higher standards.
Mittlerweile steht der Name „Original-Schlossdielen“ als Synonym für exklusive und hochwertige Holzböden in großen Dimensionen. Today the large floor planks have become firmly established as a prized brand product among clientele and in specialist shops. Original chateau planks are the epitome of wide, exclusive, premium and beautiful wooden floors on the entire market

The wooden floor Exhibition:
In the year 2000, Bruno Schönlein constructed a unique wooden floor showroom in Niebüll in North Frisia, which has already been named “Germany’s most beautiful showroom”. Since it opened, customers and dealers specialising in chateau planks and other select products have been able to gain an impression of these items before making purchases.
Since the showroom building is located near the car shuttle train bound for Sylt, many interested parties take the opportunity to combine their holiday trip with a personal viewing appointment on site.

Change in management with time-proven values ...

At the beginning of 2018, Bruno Schönlein decided to withdraw from the management of the company and passed on this role to me, Thorsten Ahrens, who had been one of his colleagues for many years.

This is my philosophy:
Many of our planks and pieces of furniture consist of wood, a completely natural product. I am aware that every tree grows into its shape only once. This is why responsibly handling natural products like wood is very important to me. And I also want to know where the wood that bears our name comes from and which substances it has contacted. That lets us offer you healthy wood with exceptional chateau plank dimensions.


Wood is extremely fascinating ...

Rooms featuring wood appear both beautiful and lively. It constantly expands and contracts and embodies a great deal of life. All woods are different, as are all trees.
Wood is a unique natural product, owing to its multitude of facets, colours, dimensions, specific growing properties and beauty We capture these essential features and transform every trunk into unique planks with respect for nature. We try to optimally present the unique facets of all woods so you can gain a better appreciation for this lively material.

Diversitry not just with wood:
Our customers are every bit as different as wood can be. All people have their own demands that are closely intertwined with their life story. Getting to know new, interesting people every day and provide them with consulting on a trusting basis is both exciting and remarkable.
