In March, 1883, this tirm purchase( from Messrs. Richmond and Treadwel the Keek stock of furniture. The senior member of the firm, John Koch, has had twenty-five years' experi ence in the business. He served an apprenticeship in Germany, and learnec all the details from actual experience. The junior partner, William G Henne, was a cabinet-maker by trade For several years he was employed bj the Michigan Furniture Conipany. Both members of the firm, it will be seen were almost sure to make a success o the furniture business. That they have done so is proved by the experience of the past three years. Koch & Henne occupy a large three story, triple-front building, a cut of which is found on this page. On the flrst tíoor general household f urnishing goods, including many odds and ends, are kept. There are folding beds, bureaus, tables, wash-stands, chaira, mantels, brackets, etc., etc., too numerous to be mentioned in this article. On the second floor are the carpet and chamber-set departments. The carpet room is, by all means, the most showy room in the city. All kinds of ingrains, tapestries, mattings, moquettes, Brussels carpets (body and tapestry), are there found in great variety, and the latest patterns and styles are displayed. The third ñoor is mostly devoted to storage and repairing of furniture. A large reserve stock is kept both here and in the basement. The repair shop is well equioped. Even the most badly used furniture can there be mended and made to look as f resh and new as if it had just been bought. The upholstering room is also on the third Hoor. The firra pride themselves upon doing most excellent work in this line. Everything throughout the building is of the most approved style. Few stores in even larger cities can compare with it. All the stock is purchased either at Grand Kapids or at Chieago, and is of the very best. It could not be otherwise, for it is always selected by Mr. Koch personally, and, as a friend once said of him, " VVhat John Koch doesn't know about furniture isn't worth knowing."
