Our Factory


We would love to have you visit our factory in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

You’d see a family of artisans hammering hot metal, woodsmiths hand-planing wood table tops, and painters meticulously applying their glazes. You’d see the care and attention they put into each piece of furniture with a sense of hand that no machine could ever match.

There is no doubt that you would leave with a real appreciation of just how special our product is.  We're celebrating nearly three decades of American craftsmanship — we're proud of what we do and we pledge our best to you.
