Thank you for your interest in Past Present Future.
The furniture and accessories you will be viewing on our web-
site are the best that America produced from the late 1800's through
the mid 1970's. We collect, restore and supply vintage and antique
office furniture from manufacturers such as General Fireproofing,
All Steel Equipment, Steelcase, Herman Miller, Knoll, Art Metal
Company, Library Bureau Sole Maker, Shaw- Walker, Yawman Erbe,
Emeco, Invincible, Derby, Gunlocke and Cole. We also specialize
in Twentieth Century decorative arts furniture and objects by

and Eames; and we deal in 20th Century fine arts and collectibles
including the works of Shimon Okshteyn, Patrick Nagel, Dennis
Mukai, Bruce McCombs, Daniel Authouart and Robert Hoppe.
Having been involved in furniture, fine art and design work since
1970 we have a great feel for the interesting and unusual. We
have over two thousand chairs and countless office, industrial
and building accessories in our constantly expanding inventory.
Our restoration and modification work is unsurpassed and, as we
personally oversee all facets, guaranteed to be as perfect as
humanly possible. We pride ourselves on our ability to give this
furniture a new life. The result is both functional and unique,
using the style of the past to enhance today's home or office
setting. We differ from others in the vintage office furniture
marketplace by offering the most diverse choice of styles, models
and restoration options.
Past Present Future is made up of highly motivated individuals
who have a passion for saving this wonderful and often neglected
vintage wood and metal office furniture. This is the furniture
made and used by the men and women who saved the free world during
the war years, using the machines and factories that became the
foundation of today's American infrastructure. These chairs, desks,
credenzas, bookcases and tables were called tanks and battleships
because they were built just as tough. Many designs are from great
American designers who applied their talents to office furniture
early in their careers, and whose accomplishments in the field
have long been forgotten. Our mission is to rescue this furniture
and these designs and put them back where they belong - in use.
If you have any questions, please feel free to write or call.
We look forward to hearing from you and doing business with you
in the near future.
