Their main goal was to come up with an environmentally-friendly way to repurpose old and worn-out furniture. But they also had a less lofty goal: the "shabby chic" furniture they had already created was taking up all the space in their homes, basements, and garages. Simply stated — they needed more room. Logue and Redding, close friends since they taught in the Stoughton school system together over 40 years ago, and another friend, Pat Perry, who now works as a consigner with the business, had been working together to repair and beautify old furniture for years. After looking into several different ways to sell their furniture, they came up with the idea of hold- ing weekend "pop-up" sales in Narragansett, Rhode Island, where they could sell some of their creations. They offered customers hutches, end tables, bureaus, and other pieces, and people loved their products. Search & Rescue Furniture was born.
