Darvin® Furniture Recognized With ‘Outstanding Accomplishment Award’
Orland Park, IL, February 19, 2019 – At the January Orland Park Board meeting, Mayor Keith Pekau asked Steve and Marty Darvin, co-owners of
Darvin Furniture & Mattress, to step up to the front of the village hall to be recognized by the board of trustees with the
Orland Park Outstanding Accomplishment Award.
According to Pekau, the Outstanding Accomplishment Award is an honor reserved only for Orland Park organizations that receive recognition at the national level.
Darvin was recently awarded the 2018 Leadership Award by Furniture Today magazine,
the U.S. furniture industry’s most recognized publication.

Darvin Furniture, 15400 La Grange Road, Orland Park, IL, Chicagoland's largest furniture and mattress store, along with two other businesses, Haverty’s and Amazon,
were recognized at a national level by the magazine for its commitment to the community, innovation and best practices.
“We were thrilled to be able to publicly recognize the Darvin family and the national award they won,” says Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau. “Darvin Furniture is a
staple of our business community and Orland Park is very proud of all of their accomplishments over the past 98 years.”
With the village hall filled by residents and business owners alike, Pekau asked how many in the audience have actually bought furniture from Darvin – and most
of the people in the room raised their hand. “I expected a few hands to go up,” Pekau says. “Most of the board members behind me raised their hands and more than half
of the audience at the board meeting did too. It was a nice testament to a long-time Orland Park company.”
For Steve and Marty Darvin, who humbly accepted the award from Pekau, the informal recognition of their business by the raised hands of so many happy customers
was just as gratifying as receiving the actual award.
“This is such a great honor and a wonderful nod to all of the people we work with who have made shopping at Darvin a great experience,” says Marty Darvin. “We really
are lucky to be doing something we love. We will always be committed to offering great quality and a fair price.”
Steve Darvin added: “Our family has been doing this for more than 98 years and we never grow tired of making our customers happy. Receiving an award like this,
especially with it being the home of our business for so many years, means a lot to Marty and I. And we accept it on behalf of our family of employees and the generations
of customers who have made it all possible.”
