Style and practicality combine in this timeless piece, made in North Carolina

by Gene Ansell Lande

Your sofa is one of the hardest working pieces of furniture in the home a serious purchase that demands thought and research. This elegant piece, from Old Hickory Tannery, works equally well as the focal point of a room or as a supporting player its festive coral hue conversing particularly well with light greys or ivories.

As a family owned business in North Carolina, Old Hickory Tannery originally focused on leather upholstery and has been in business for more than 30 years. Recently, the maker has been on designers’ radar thanks to its eclectic range of styles and fabric covered seating choices—its exceptionality attributable to craftspeople who bring an abundance of expertise to the work. All upholstery is cut and sewn by hand, and the entire exterior of this piece is hand tufted. With a base made of comfort foam and cushions filled with down, comfort is guaranteed. We think the rolled arms add just the right amount of ornate style; this is a sofa that begs you to sit down, put your feet up, and stay a while.
