Along with new paint, new audio system, new video monitors and an abundance of newly booked events, the Orland Park Civic Center lobby is now outfitted with brand new furniture thanks to a generous donation from local furniture retailer, Darvin Furniture.

“We are so excited about all of the updates made to this beautiful building,” said Village of Orland Park Trustee Pat Gira who is also a member of the Civic Center Authority Board. “We encourage the community to come out and take a look at the many improvements that make the Orland Park Civic Center a perfect spot for any gathering or event.”

The new leather club chairs, tables, lamps and decorative trees placed in the lobby of the Civic Center are all courtesy of Darvin Furniture of Orland Park.

“We love our home in Orland Park,” said Lori Stengren, Darvin Furniture V.P. of Sales, Merchandising and Marketing. ”The Civic Center represents the Orland Park community, and we at Darvin Furniture thought it was important to be a part of that,” added Stengren.

The Civic Center is able to accommodate many types of events ranging from business seminars to formal weddings. The Civic Center Exhibition Room seats up to 225 guests for luncheons/dinner events and 400 for meetings, seminars, training functions. The Grand Hall and 
Outdoor Terrace are included with rental of the Exhibition Room.

Darvin Furniture Design Consultant Soleil Tierney was able to envision the improved space with new furniture additions and chose just the right layout and pieces. “The intent was simply to give the lobby a facelift,” said Tierney.

“The difference the furniture made is incredible,” Remarked Trustee Gira. “We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
