The most skilled workers in a furniture factory are the ones who hand tie seats. Here is a clip–taken during our visit to Hickory Chair University–of the precision and dexterity required to execute this complicated task. This construction technique ensures that all the springs in a seat work together. All great sofas and chairs are made this way–just as they have been for hundreds of years. We hope you are fascinated by the speed and accuracy of this gentleman’s work. Enjoy!
We hope you enjoy this video from one of our favorite companies, Harden–the oldest furniture maker in the US–whose live edge tables are true works of art. Making the most of their expertise, their private forest for sustainably harvesting hardwoods, and the skilled craftsmen in their factory, this 5th generation business creates tables certain to be tomorrow’s heirlooms.
