In the late 1800's, Solomon Karpen founded S. Karpen & Bros. Furniture in Chicago. It became the largest upholstered furniture manufacturer in the world.

Kittinger has been a name associated with quality American made furniture for decades. This 1950 dining room suite was rescued by our client after her mother sold it to a handyman.
