Church & Chapel Partners with Howard Millerorporation Celebrates its 50th Anniversary Year

Church & Chapel Metal Arts, a Chicago-based funeral industry provider since 1933, is proud to announce their partnership with Howard Miller. Howard Miller, a premier case-goods manufacturer since 1926, is best known to memorial industry customers for grandfather clocks and memorial urn selections. Seeing that custom, free-standing cabinets have become a growing segment of Howard Miller’s business, Frank Taddeo, Vice-President of Church & Chapel, decided that the time was right to offer their customers a package with two of the best-selling display pieces. Now customers in the United States can enjoy a specially-priced package complete with free White Glove Delivery.

“We have built our business on made-to-order furnishings such as lecterns, kneelers and signage which are available in a variety of sizes, finishes and configurations. Howard Miller’s display and media consoles complement our offerings with choices of four coordinating finishes and hardware options,“ said Taddeo. “For our line, we use local artisans and craftsmen. We are especially proud to promote Howard Miller products because these pieces are also made in the U.S.A. by highly-skilled craftsmen.”

Cheryl Stormzand, Director of Design and Merchandizing for Howard Miller and Hekman, states, “This collaboration shows how two American family businesses can work together to provide well-priced, superior quality, customized furniture for the memorial industry. Both companies are known for their outstanding personal attention, superior product construction and attention to detail. Free White Glove service certifies premier attention to delivery.”

In addition to media storage, the 63” console offers ample space for office equipment, paperwork/forms and catalogs. Or space could be used by family members to store purses or personal items during a visitation. The secure lock on the curio display cabinet promises that family memorabilia, keepsake jewelry or merchandise selections remain in place.

Per Taddeo, “The media console/display curio package offers great value, customized design options, premier handling and best of all – the focused attention of Church & Chapel plus Howard Miller in serving our customer’s needs.” For more information, contact: Church & Chapel Metal Arts at 800.992.1234 or visit
