Niche is about relationships and working with people you love and respect… Family members and hard-working men and women who become part of the unique, extended family that gives life to our company and help it grow and prosper.

This particular dream begins back in 1940, when Scott and Norma Summerville opened their own office products business. The formal legal document says nothing of the ideas and aspirations that led to such a giant step for a young couple. Times changed, and the company changed with it – first adding one of the areas first used office furniture showrooms, and becoming one of the first sources for mid-market furniture in Northeast Ohio.

Norma stepped down as president in 1987 and was succeeded by her son and the company’s current president, John “Skip” Summerville. It is Skip who saw a need in the office furniture market for a source of good quality products at an affordable price. Unable to find this source, he decided to become it. And by doing so, this family business entered Into another new chapter – Becoming Regency, Inc. – a Virtual manufacturer of, and YOUR complete source for office furniture.


The Regency Family grew again in 2009 with the creation of our Niche line. Built around the concept of easy-to-build home furnishings, Niche is perfect for any room of the house, dorm room or lounge. Our ever expanding product line now features many products with tool-free assembly including our modular storage cubes, modern and lightweight seating, tables, and desks.
