Stickley & Simonds Company - Auburn & Syracuse, New York  (1891-1898)

Gustav and Leopold Stickley became foremen of the Auburn State Prison's furniture plant in 1891.  At the time, it was common for private companies to contract with the State to manufacture goods in the prison.  Gustav and Elgin Simonds formed a new partnership to sell the furniture in nearby Syracuse, New York.  As opposition to prison contracts increased, Stickley and Simonds began focusing production on a new factory in Syracuse's Eastwood business district.  In 1897, the company began manufacturing exclusively at the Eastwood factory, making eclectic chairs and furniture to meet the Victorian tastes of the times.  The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City was among their prestigious customers.
