Fine American Furniture - A Toast to Sherrill

Sherrill Chairs in Goldenrod Toile
In my search for fine heirloom-quality upholstered pieces worthy of refurbishing costs, a short-cut method I use is to look for certain labels that always convey quality and superior workmanship - even today!   One of the labels I look for and often find is Sherrill.  Lately, I have found lots of Sherrill pieces - mostly club and wingback chairs - and have quite a few in my "before" and "after" inventory.   I have also been working with custom clients who have specified Sherrill or comparable quality for their pieces.
Since 1944, Sherrill Furniture Company and its divisions have supplied custom home furnishings to Major Furniture Stores and Major Department Stores throughout the United States and Canada.  All of our factories are located in the Hickory, North Carolina area. We are very fortunate to have a workforce of skilled technicians who combine time honored manufacturing techniques, and the highest quality materials, to hand build each piece of furniture for your home. Their dedication to their craft, combined with our dedication to maintaining the highest product quality standards, corporate efficiencies, and continuous improvement, make Sherrill Furniture Company the furniture industry leader in producing quality home furnishings. Our mission from the beginning was to be recognized by our customers as the leader in premium home furnishings by exceeding their expectations for excellence in quality, fashion, innovation, and service. The mission still continues. We are very proud to present Sherrill Furniture Company products to you for your home.
The Sherrill website is very informative Sherrill.  I love the site's demonstration of hand-tied 8-way coil springs as they are installed and secured inside of the seat frame of a chair.  Hand-tied coil springs are a quality factor I look for in all the pieces I buy and use it to gauge overall quality if the label is missing.  The coils add so much to the long-term comfort and stability to a fine piece of upholstered furniture.  Sherrill pieces all have the coil springs as a standard construction feature.

Here are some of my refurbished Sherrill pieces.
