In Praise of American Furniture Manufacturing - Sherrill

Sherrill Wingback in Houndstooth Fabric - Seafoam and Cream - Wydeven Designs
As I look at my current inventory, I am struck by the plethora of pieces manufactured by Sherrill Furniture link to company website.  The pieces are well designed and exceptionally well made!
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.
One of the tricks in selecting furniture to refurbish/reupholster is to make sure that the piece is worth redoing - worth spending the time and money to give it one more life.  With the Sherrill name on the label, all of that worry is needless - it is worth redoing! I actively look for the Sherrill label and do craigslist searches for this and other high end labels such as Henredon, Baker, Southwood, Hickory Chair and a few others that are still made in America. Unfortunately, many labels no longer exist and much of the manufacturing has shifted oversees. It's just not the same thing!

Here are some current and recent pieces in my inventory - check out my sales on wydevendesigns.com, eBay and Etsy.

Sherrill Club Chairs and Ottoman in Heavy Woven Stripe - Wydeven Designs 
Sherrill Tight-Seat Skirted Chairs in Black and Gold Damask - Sold 2013

I will continue to seek out these great pieces and bring them back to life. For anyone wishing to find good quality furniture to redo, you cannot go wrong with Sherrill!
