Many early Grand Rapids furniture company catalogs have tremendous research value for collectors, academics, antique vendors, artists, and other interested researchers. The Museum's collection of catalogs, photographs, and other ephemera document the rich history of Grand Rapids handcrafted furniture and its significant influence in the nation's furniture industry. The furniture catalogs featured in this gallery have been scanned cover-to-cover and are provided to researchers for educational projects.
