BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) — When Ray and Karen Bialkowski bought Kittinger Furniture twenty-five years ago Ray says their first order of business was to "Reestablish our relationship with the White House".

Most recently Kittinger Furniture was represented at last week's Inauguration when once again the Inaugural chairs were taking center stage.

Ray says "The Inauguration Chair is the same chair ordered by Ronald Reagan for the oval office."

The table and chairs in the Cabinet Room and the Roosevelt Room were all made at Kittinger as were the "Fireside Chairs" seen through a number of administrations.

There are eight Inaugural chairs that according to Ray are stored in Washington, D.C. between Inaugurations.

Kittinger Furniture Company is located at 4675 Transit Road, Williamsville, NY 14221
