Rowe Furniture Senior Design Consultant to retire after 28 years

Apr '07
Known by many within the home furnishings and textile world, Rowe Furniture Senior Design Consultant Howard Niederman is retiring after 28 years. Neiderman helped to pioneer Rowe's signature special order fabric program which revolutionized customization choices in the furniture industry.

For more than a quarter century, Niederman has developed designs for Rowe Furniture, taking a lead role in the styling and manufacturing of Rowe's products. He also planned and developed designs for key accounts.

Rowe President and CEO Stefanie Lucas said, “Howard was instrumental in helping Rowe develop into the style leader it is today. We would not be who we are today without the many years of Howard's expertise and input into our product direction.”

Prior to joining Rowe, Niederman was president and chairman of the board of Howard Parlor Furniture. For 20 years, he worked for the upholstering company based in Chicago.

Niederman resides outside of Chicago. After retirement he will be enjoying more time with his wife of 55 years, his 5 children and 7 grandchildren. He graduated from Roosevelt University and has a Masters from the University of Chicago.
