Hickory Chair University and Factory Tour

I had a great opportunity recently to learn first-hand how furniture is constructed.  It’s pretty hard to feel cool wearing safety glasses and ear protection, but it was a great way to get out of the summer heat!

This lean and green furniture manufacturing plant located in Hickory, NC offers a broad selection that ranges from 18th-century mahogany reproductions to fashion-forward designer collections. The Frederica Bench shown here is part of Suzanne Kesler’s line that is based on antiques she found in her travels throughout Europe, mainly Paris. The hand-applied silver finish is one of my favorites. Beautifully proportioned, this delicate, hand-carved reproduction has a tight seat and back, making it a perfect accent for any interior.
