High Point, NC, March 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- In June 1914, the Lewis Glacier Hotel (now Lake McDonald Lodge) opened along the shore of pristine Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park filled with Old Hickory furniture. Now 100 years later Old Hickory furniture is still prominent throughout the historic lodge. Old Hickory Furniture Company and Xanterra Parks and Resorts are celebrating the historic partnership with two commemorative Centennial items: The Glacier Park Chair and Glacier Park Rocker. Both items will be on display at the upcoming High Point Furniture Market in the Old Hickory Booth (1-726) in Made in America Pavilion (Suites at Market Square).
“We chose two historic styles from our 1914 Old Hickory Catalog to embody our long standing relationship with the Glacier National Park Lodges. These designs have been re-introduced, because their timeless beauty is certain to be popular again today,” said Bob Morrison, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Because we value Glacier National Park and Xanterra Parks & Resorts, 5% percent of each Glacier Park Chair and Rocker sold will be donated to the Glacier National Park Conservancy.”
Old Hickory furniture is available through fine furniture retailers throughout the country as well as through interior designers and online retailers.
