Charleston Forge has a long history of hand-building, beautiful, high quality, steel, wood, and leather furniture. We have an extensive catalog of products and do a large amount of custom work and have built product for retailers such as Room & Board, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel and Bloomingdales, just to name a few.
Vicki Krueger, right, of West Jefferson, NC is seen with me, Art Barber, company chairman, when Vicki came by our Boone, NC facility last week to pick up the Cascade Drink Table she won during the Facebook competition the we held earlier this year. Vicki received the very first of these tables that we built. The competition asked Facebook fans to suggest names for the new product and to get their friends to “Like” their idea.
Vicki, a kindergarten teacher at Two Rivers Community School in Boone, toured the company’s factory with her husband, Steve, and got to see the manufacturing process up-close from start to finish. During the tour Vicki got to meet Ernie Houser, one of the company’s team of long-serving employees and the artisan who built the prototype that she now owns.
“I am truly thankful for the opportunity to own such a beautiful piece and have the opportunity to win it through the Facebook contest,” said Vicki. “Knowing that my table is from right here in the United States makes it more special to me.”
The hammered steel base of the table is one of the signature looks of Charleston Forge furniture and is similar to the company’s Hudson collection. It is complemented by a unique cast-glass top. The Cascade was introduced at the High Point Furniture Market in April 2011 and has been added to the catalog following a very strong reception from buyers and designers there.
As always, thanks for your interest.
