1946

1946
In 1946, just after the end of WWII, Gallatin Valley Furniture opened its doors at 303 East Main in downtown Bozeman. With the hard work and vision of Don and Veronica DeCosse, and later, Don’s father Edmund, the business began to thrive, one customer at a time.

1970
In the early 1970s, Jim Decosse, the son of Don and Veronica, entered the family business, followed by Veronica's son-in-law and daughter, Dennis and Michelle Cattin. Family patriarch Don Decosse shared with each of them the fundamentals of the furniture and flooring business, and the importance of providing a great experience to each customer. It was during those years that Gallatin Valley Furniture expanded from its original downtown location to its current North 7th Avenue showroom.

The level of client service that started back on East Main Street over seventy years ago remains a foundational piece of our work.
