45 Years of Inspired Design
Design Quest Anniversary Celebration
Opening Reception: Oct 26, 5-8 pm
Exhibit: Oct 26 - Nov 19

Dear Friends,

Founded in 1972, our first location, in Gaslight Village, was only 1200 square feet. Over the years, our locations have changed and expanded. But our love for design that touches the soul and craftsmanship that invites you to caress the contours, has remained true.

Please join us as we look back at furniture from each of our locations. We have collected interesting pieces from each location, some borrowed from our customers, and will exhibit them along with photos, Oct 16 to Nov 19.

We also look forward to seeing you at the party: enjoying the company, seeing the changes 45 years has brought, perhaps winning a prize.* We hope you will participate, one way or another.

Sincerely yours,
The Design Quest Staff

*Register for a chance to win very nice prizes from Ekornes, IMG Comfort, BDI, and many others.

LOOKING FOR ICONS!

We are assembling an exhibit chronicling Design Quest’s 45 years in Grand Rapids. We have already many exciting pieces, some purchased as far back as 1972, but a few exceptional pieces are still missing. If you have, and are willing to lend us any of the pieces shown below, or if you have something unique that we have overlooked that you think should be included, we would appreciate hearing from you.

The exhibit will open on Thursday, October 26, and will run three weeks. We will arrange for pickup and delivery, and will take full responsibility of the care and safekeeping of your furniture.

The exhibit will open with a party celebrating forty-five years of business. You are invited. Come see the change over 45 years, meet friends and Design Quest staff, who were with us then, as well as those still with us today.

Please let us know what you have and would lend us, email us a picture at 45th@DesignQuest.biz or call 616-940-9911.

Sincerely yours,
The Design Quest Staff
