Spotlight on Hickory Chair Furniture Co.

Every family has one—a legendary piece of furniture, stately and revered, that’s passed down from one generation to the next. That’s the kind of furniture Hickory Chair Furniture Co. is in the business to create. With the slogan “Made to Order. Made to Last,” it’s no wonder the company is entering its second century of building customizable, heirloom-quality furniture. Since its humble beginnings constructing a made-to-order dining chair, the Hickory, N.C.-based company (with a showroom in IMS) has carved out a reputation for combining artisan craftsmanship with timeless design.

Not only are customized options available at Hickory Chair, they’re all but encouraged. The company offers a completely customizable seating program, over 70 finishes from which to choose, and boasts the ability to match any paint chip. What’s more, all of the furniture is made-to-order and built right in the Hickory workroom by skilled artisans. From traditional to transitional, the pieces look just as comfortable in a modern loft apartment and a rustic country estate. In recent years, Hickory Chairs has even produced several collaborations with acclaimed designers, including Thomas O’Brien, Mark Hampton, and Mariette Himes Gomez.

For a first-hand look at their masterful work and customizable options, join us tomorrow afternoon at their free Design Week event, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. To RSVP, email Fran Kraft at Or just show up!
