The company began as an offspring of a retail furniture shop in Wadena, Minn. in 1953, when founders Mert Bottemiller and Al Engelemann set out to build a better hassock (now more commonly known as an ottoman) than their vendors could supply. They soon expanded their business into manufacturing with a growing line of indoor and outdoor patio furniture. Homecrest outdoor furniture combines a rich history of quality and classic design with today's demand for affordable luxury and versatile living. Homecrest's focus has broadened to encompass the increasing demands of sophisticated, style-driven consumers seeking to complement their homes' interior designs and create a seamless flow between indoors and out. As retail sales prospered, distribution expanded into new markets including international, and contract for resorts, restaurants and health care. The Homecrest patio furniture line also grew, with a stream of new collections, products and innovations including: self-adjusting chaises, swivel rocker recliners and chaises, gliders, padded slings and technically innovative fabrics, very low maintenance aluminum mesh, and the popular Comfort Recliner.
In addition to being one of the first outdoor patio furniture manufacturers in the United States, the company was also the first outdoor furniture manufacturer to use Sunbrella fabrics on outdoor furniture.
