OLD HICKORY FURNITURE COMPANY: AN AMERICAN CLASSIC February 12 2013, 0 Comments

Old Hickory Furniture Company has been widely known as America's original hickory furniture maker for over one hundred years.  Shelbyville, Indiana is home to their factory and team of design engineers and craftsmen who produce these beautiful and timeless pieces.  Classic mortise and tenon construction of naturally sustainable hickory saplings that are kiln dried is the key to their success.  I've utilized many custom pieces of Old Hickory furniture for my clients with rustic style homes as well as in more traditional settings as accent pieces.  Many celebrities including Robert Redford, Ralph Lauren and Bruce Springsteen enjoy Old Hickory furniture in their homes and you will even spot some at places like Disney World and Yosemite lodge.  Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

 

These Old Hickory swivel counter stools were upholstered in a soft leather for my client's custom Adirondack style kitchen.

In my design studio, I paired an Old Hickory Replica End Table with a more traditional wing chair and ottoman.

Country Living featured a cabin in Michigan who's homeowners restored existing Old Hickory furniture pieces to fit their style.  In the dining room custom tufted leather seat cushions were made to fit these antique Old Hickory dining arm chairs.

I absolutely love this captain's chair and ottoman from Old Hickory's upholstery line.  The combination of antique herringbone cane and the black and cream fabrics has a very chic look that would be a great accent to most styles.

The Andrew Jackson chair (shown here as a rocker) has been part of Old Hickory's logo since it's formation in 1890.  The company wanted to commemorate our seventh President of the United States by using his nickname "Old Hickory" as it was so fitting.

 Their Live Edge collection features contemporary designs such as this dining table with a natural live edge walnut slab as the table top complimented by hickory log legs.  I love this look.
