Longtime Rowe Designer Niederman to Retire
By Home Furnishings Business in Upholstery on April 2007
Rowe Furniture Senior Design Consultant Howard Niederman, who helped pioneer the upholstery manufacturers signature special order fabric program, is retiring after 28 years working with the company.
In addition to taking a lead role in the styling and manufacturing of Rowes product, Niederman also planned and developed designs for key accounts.
Howard was instrumental in helping Rowe develop into the style leader it is today, said Rowe President and CEO Stefanie Lucas. We would not be who we are today without the many years of Howards expertise and input into our product direction.
Prior to joining Rowe, Niederman was president and chairman of the board of Howard Parlor Furniture in Chicago. Niederman resides outside of Chicago. After retirement he will be enjoying more time with his wife of 55 years, his five children and seven grandchildren. He graduated from Roosevelt University and has a Masters degree from the University of Chicago.
