king hickory history

King Hickory Furniture Company is a family owned company. We began manufacturing fine upholstered furniture in 1958 in Hickory, North Carolina. For over 50 years, we have proudly provided the highest quality, upholstered fabric and leather furniture to the consumer.

 

Hickory and the surrounding Catawba Valley area are world renowned for the manufacturing of upholstered furniture. The close proximity of some of the finest Appalachian hardwoods influenced the location of the furniture manufacturing industry in this area. A skilled workforce that takes much pride in building fine furniture has been an even greater reason for the establishment of the industry in the Hickory area.

 

The King Hickory Difference

King Hickory has used three major assets in building its reputation over the years, solid frames, master craftsmen, and 8 way hand tied springs.

 

Solid Frames

The use of kiln-dried hardwoods with maple rails is the foundation of one of the best frames in the furniture business. Recently, we have incorporated the use of cad/cam technology to create intricate hardwood plywood frames. This technology allows our designers to create frame shapes that were not possible in the past.

 

Master Craftsman

King Hickory has been able to attract and keep some of the area's finest craftsmen by offering its employees a work environment which fosters motivation and self-accountability. Many of these craftsmen have been with the company for more than a quarter of a century.

 

8 Way Hand Tied Springs

Our seat springing system is 8-way hand-tied, which is considered the benchmark for seating in all fine upholstery. The finest cushioning materials available are used to provide excellent comfort. Fine fabrics and leathers from all over the world are offered in a wide assortment so almost any look can be tailored to the customer's taste and satisfaction.

 

For fifty years, King Hickory Furniture Company has been dedicated to building superior furniture, possessing the elements of luxury, quality, and style. We have developed a distinctive collection of timeless upholstered fabric and fine leather furniture to enhance the atmosphere of any setting.
