Living Room Suites
These Suites are most graceful in design, the frames are in Mohogany
and made heavy enough to endure years. and years of service. We feel
that we were especially fortunate in getting such a beautiful selection of
upholstery, the quality being the best we have had and the pattern and
colors 'are'especially good.
Just come in and see our large display---you won't be urged to buy and
we believe you will feel fully repaid for the trip.
