Finding "it" - the right thing for your room can be a daunting task. Sometimes the piece you find is perfect except it is the wrong finish. Maybe the hardware is not your style. Maybe if it was a few inches shorter, taller or longer it would have been perfect.
We listen at Hickory Chair. It is the passion of our nearly 500 telented artisans and craftsmen to help you personalize our pieces so that they are just right for your home. It is our 100 year old workroom in Hickory, North Carolina where we make one of a kind pieces to order. It is the generations skill passed from the master craftsman to apprentice for these 100 years married to lean thinking and environmental stewardship that has allowed us to remain a relevant, valued partner to the designer and collector of quality American made pieces. It is this passion that has allowed us to trim waste from the process while focusing on fine details of tailoring and finish. It has allowed us to make one piece at a time from beginning to end in just a few weeks from order the way you want it.
Shown in our ad featured in the July issue of Architectural Digest, Traditional Home and House Beautiful along with the July/August issue of Veranda, is the new Elliott Wing Chair and Artisan Curved Front Chest with Overlay from our 1911 Collection in the foreground along with the Sophia Mirror by Thomas O'Brien where another version of the chair and chest are reflected. Because almost 90% of our pieces are made by hand to order that we can offer this kind of personalization. These pieces tease you with our ability to transform almost every piece we offer for you for your room. A classic piece can become transitional with the change of finish and hardware or the look of a cherished antique with an aged finish and antiqued hardware. Want to create your own version of the Artisan Curved Front Chest? Want to upholster your own version of the Elliott Wing Chair? By clicking on their names you can become the upholsterer or finisher of these pieces. You can try different hardware on the chest along with finish choices, a combination of two finishes and then hand striping to create your own creation.
