For over a century, Gunlocke has manufactured great furniture for large and small companies, government agencies and even U.S. Presidents. In 1902 William H. Gunlocke and four other wood furniture experts acquired a vacant factory in Wayland, New York. They establish the W. H. Gunlocke Chair Company, which initially specialized in seating for homes, libraries, and lounges. They rapidly grew expanding its range of products to include office seating and steam bending in the company’s manufacturing process. Gunlocke was awarded its first National Contract with Western Electric and despite the Depression, Gunlocke continued to grow. President Franklin D. Roosevelt enhanced the company’s prestige by choosing Gunlocke furniture for the White House. In 1937, following the death of his father, Howard Gunlocke became president and established the use of direct salespeople and showrooms and in the 1940’s during the war years, most of Gunlocke’s output was for government and military facilities. In 1962 President John F. Kennedy made crucial Cuban Missile Crisis decisions – from his Gunlocke chair in the Oval Office and in 2002, Gunlocke celebrated its 100th anniversary. With the latest high-tech equipment and State-of-the-art machinery, Gunlocke continues to produce superior wood furniture at competitive prices.

This is a beautiful walnut executive desk created by a renowned manufacturer. You simply can’t go wrong with Gunlocke. Make it yours!!
