American Furniture Manufacturing – A Fine Tradition - North Carolina (second installment)

I have noted before that the primary reason I can actually pursue the business of refurbishing and selling fine upholstered furniture is because of the rich American manufacturing tradition.  Much of that tradition has been and continues to be focused in North Carolina.  Here are some additional companies and examples of their great products:

Frederick Edward of Morganton, NC - acquired by Drexel Heritage in 2002

Frederick Edward Wingback Chair (SOLD)
Drexel Heritage (now includes Henredon and Maitland Smith) of Morganton, NC link

Drexel Heritage Chairs 
Sherrill Furniture of Hickory, NC since 1944 link

Sherrill Chairs (SOLD)
Hickory Hill of Hickory, NC (no longer in business)

Hickory Hill Love Seat (SOLD)
Highland House of Hickory, NC since the 1960's link
