Our History

Furnishing Knowledge Since 1941

In 1941, we introduced our first product – the folding chair. It answered the call for portable, stackable seating. Today, this chair symbolizes a legacy of listening to our customers.

We've grown well beyond our origins, designing locally in response to our customers' needs and providing contract furniture solutions that fit their environment, brilliantly.
