Remembering 50 Years
Design Quest looks back at 50 years of our quest to bring great design to West Michigan. From a small storefront in East Grand Rapids, 1972, to our current location on 28th Street, we hope you enjoy our celebration of 50 years in business.
After 33 years, Herman Miller has cut Design Quest off as a retail partner, simply because we are too close to the recently opened, and Herman Miller owned, Design Within Reach.
50 Years of Design and Craftsmanship
Design Quest celebrates 50 years, on Oct. 6, 5-8pm and with special promotions during the month of October.
Design Quest opens in October, 1972
In spite of a lack of encouragement, Design Quest opened the doors to their first showroom in Gaslight Village, East Grand Rapids, in October, 1972. Although only 1200 sq ft, the space was open and light and full of grand designs from Scandinavia.
