NOVA was founded in 1923 by three brothers with the vision of bringing light and warmth to their fellow Brooklynites. The business thrived through the depression years and NOVA was able to open showrooms in High Point, NC, the NY Furniture Exchange and America’s Furniture Mart in Chicago. Two of the brothers, Israel Langbaum and David Moscowitz spent much of their time selling the line on the road, while Murray Moskowitz ran the factory in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. The designs were functional, purposeful and built to last. Their mission was solving real world problems, while making homes warmer and cozier.
