The History of the Building. credit – Naperville Settelment Says-
“In the 1890s, Peter Edward Kroehler transformed a Naperville furniture-making business from the Naperville Lounge Company into Kroehler Manufacturing Company, the world’s largest producer of upholstered furniture and one of the town’s biggest employers.
Kroehler moved to Naperville from Minnesota in 1890 to attend North Central College. Soon after graduation, he took a job at the Naperville Lounge Factory. He immersed himself in all aspects of the furniture business including buying raw materials, writing up orders and catalogs, and shipping products to customers. The company operated in small quarters until Kroehler moved the factory alongside the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad tracks to accommodate his expanding work force in 1887.
Innovations in design and marketing fueled the company’s growth. In 1909, Kroehler patented the Unifold Davenport, a folding metal bed frame with a removable mattress that soon became a customer favorite. To publicize its products, the company bought full-color ads in national publications such as the Ladies Home Journal.” read more at Naperville Settelment.
