Thompson, Colie and Company opened its doors in 1866 in Buffalo, New
York as a paper and rag warehouse. In 1901, serious illness forced
founder George Colie to hand over the daily operations of his company to
his 27 year old son-in-law, Irvine Kittinger. Kittinger discovered that
furniture manufacturing was a great outlet for his artistic nature.
Irvine Kittinger began buying out his partners, sales soared, and in
1913 he became president and general manager of what was known from then
on as the Kittinger Furniture Company.
