We’re especially proud to introduce you to this dining set because it comes with a great story.
As you may (or may not) know, Laura was a passenger on the Amtrak train that crashed last year. Since that time we have been looking for a way to give back to our local first responders to thank them for the work they did on that day, and EVERY day.
This fall we had the privilege of working with a local fireman on a custom dining set. If we build something original for a customer and decide to add it to our catalog, the customer gets to name the pieces. So, we presented our local hero with the challenge of coming up with a name for his creation.
Here was his reply to us:
I just want to send a quick thank you for delivering such an amazing piece of furniture yesterday. While you were here you guys asked if I would want to name the table so you could add the style to your regular design line. I have put some thought into a few names, and one that sticks out to me is named after a piece of rescue equipment that I use as part of my duties as a Rescue Technician, the Kootenay Carriage.
This piece of equipment is used in all three of my technician level disciplines that I maintain as part of the Technical Rescue Team with my Fire Department. The three disciplines are Swift Water Rescue Technician, Dive Rescue Technician, and High Angle Rope Rescue Technician. As you can imagine there is a very high element of danger when dealing with these types of rescues, and the equipment we use must be solid, sturdy, and durable. Those three adjectives not only describe the tools and equipment I trust my life to on the job, but also describe the dining room table, bench, and chairs you custom built to my specifications and delivered to my home.
The Kootenay dining set... I think it has a nice ring to it, and I hope to see it on your website for regular production soon.
Thanks again, and I look forward to ordering more furniture in the future. ”
Obviously, we are thrilled to not only welcome this new set to our design line, but to also let you know that 10% of all sales from this set will go back to our local firefighters in an effort to help support all the great work they do.
Thank you to Dan, and all the first responders out there! We would be lost without you.
This set includes a 72"x 40" table, four chairs, and a bench. Other configurations and sizes are available - please contact us for a custom quote.
