Scope and Contents

This series contains catalogs, price lists, brochures, photographs, correspondence, samples, and various promotional materials related to decorative furnishings received by William Pahlmann Associates between 1946 and 1976. These files are arranged by type of furnishing or location within the home, featuring such categories as lighting, kitchens, and plumbing. It appears that most of these materials were requested by William Pahlmann Associates, but it also appears that some of the information was sent to the firm without solicitation. The catalogs and associated price lists highlight the difference between the wholesale and retail market for furnishings. Interior design firms like William Pahlmann Associates benefited from bulk rates on furnishings that the average consumer could not obtain.
